Lithoz establishes a subsidiary in America

Lithoz America’s Shawn Allan

Lithoz, a leader in the Additive Manufacturing of ceramics, has announced that it has established a new subsidiary in Albany, New York State, USA. Lithoz America is a 100% subsidiary of Austria’s Lithoz GmbH and will be responsible for the entire North American market.

The products and services offered by Lithoz America are similar to the ones offered at the headquarters in Vienna. However, Lithoz America operates independently on the US market. The company states that with its location in Albany, customer requests from North America can be processed in an efficient manner and with a very high level of support.

Johannes Homa, CEO of Lithoz, stated, “Thanks to local representation we meet the requirements of the American Export Control, which enables us to work together with our American customers on special materials or application development.” Lithoz America also offers collaboration in research projects and consulting services along the entire value chain of the Additive Manufacturing of high-performance ceramics.

In the area of application development in particular, Lithoz is expecting a boost in innovation thanks to its presence in the American market. Johannes Benedikt, CTO of Lithoz, added, “The Additive Manufacturing of ceramics offers many possibilities in the field of function-oriented design of products. We have noticed that our American customers are exceptionally open to innovation. Lithoz America has set itself the goal of being a strong and competent partner for the development of new applications and materials. With our new US Manager Shawn Allan, we have found a very competent and expert partner for this task.”

Through its foundation, Lithoz is expanding its presence in one of the most important AM markets in the world. The US market represents approximately one third of the world market for high-performance ceramics and covers a number of highly interesting industries and applications. Amongst others, important applications are in the aerospace sector (ceramic cast cores for turbine drives) and the biomedical sector (implants and instruments).
