The initiative of our US partners also resonate with our own, sharing a common focus on research and development, transforming the manufacturing sector and advocating sustainability. For instance, partners like Haddy have demonstrated exceptional dedication to our technology by establishing multiple MicroFactories, locally mass-producing high-quality 3D printed furniture with a strong emphasis on sustainable and recyclable materials, with a plan to expand their operations worldwide. This pioneering approach, strongly prevalent among all our US partners, serves as a source of inspiration for the global additive manufacturing community.
Haddy is also a great example of another significant advantage of embracing this technology, which is reintroducing local employment. This trend where skilled manual labor has become increasingly scare is observed on a global scale but also pronounced in the United States. At CEAD, our focus lies in automating the production process, accompanied by a strong commitment to in-house training for machine operators to bring back manufacturing in-house.

The new Detroit office, coupled with the hiring of local talent and expertise, will serve to ease and enhance the installation and implementation of our clients turnkey Flexbot solutions in the USA. In addition to Detroit, spare parts will be distributed from multiple US locations, including Florida and Cleveland, supported by local partnerships, such as Composites Automation. As part of our future plans, CEAD will further expand in the USA with the goal of setting up a production facility to locally manufacture our 3D printing solutions.
Our expansion into the USA underlines the commitment to our clients, partners and the industries we serve. It will further solidify our mission to shaping the future of additive manufacturing in the USA and reinforcing our position as a global leader in cutting-edge 3D printing solutions.
