Manufacturing Partners Network

GE Additive’s Manufacturing Partner Network (MPN) takes an ecosystem approach to addressing several commercial challenges to ensure the additive industry reaches its next inflection point. 

As companies look for cost-efficient, scalable routes to volume production, limited access to equipment, funding to invest and expertise often prevent them from taking the next critical steps.  Additive manufacturing suppliers are seeking demand to build long-term business cases in order to invest, while OEMs need a guaranteed source of capacity, so they can continue to invest with confidence.  

The MPN helps connect businesses that want to take additive manufacturing to the next level with companies that have the expertise to get the job done.
