Lithoz GmbH, headquartered in Vienna, Austria, is expanding its global presence with the establishment of Lithoz China in Shanghai. This positioning within a key strategic manufacturing market is intended to allow Lithoz to better support its customers both locally and globally while strengthening its contribution to ceramic Additive Manufacturing, the fastest-growing segment of AM as per The Wohlers’ Report. The company will be participating in TCT Asia, planned for May 2021.

Lithoz China will be led by EOS China, with Hongyi Yang, originally the Ecosystem Sales Manager at EOS, acting as head. EOS has extensive experience in Additive Manufacturing and established a foundation in the Chinese market in 2013. EOS China reputedly hosts a large team of experts which allows the company to offer services for advice and equipment maintenance as part of its customer support.

Yang commented, “It is a challenging, but appealing, job. Ceramic 3D printing is a fascinating technology which already shows great potential to revolutionise the conventional ceramic processing methods. By benefitting from the very dynamic developing manufacturing industries in China, Lithoz is strengthening their commitment to customers and ensuring bigger growth in the coming years.”

“We strongly believe in the Chinese market to offer great new opportunities for growth when it comes to ceramic 3D printing,” added Dr Johannes Homa, CEO and co-founder of Lithoz. “Together with our existing distributors and our new partner in EOS China, Lithoz is determined to push this technology forward.”
