3D Systems buys Quickparts

3D Systems has just acquired Quickparts. Quickparts is a US based 3D printing and injection molding service. Quickparts serves the Business 2 Business marketplace and has revenues of  $25 million. Quickparts is a high profile target and a jewel in the crown of 3D Systems recent 3D printing service bureau acquisition spree. Because the company expanded into easy online ordering before most, had a broad product line up and a CEO that wrote a book that was ahead of the curve this is certainly the most famous serive bureau in 3D Systems collection. Earlier the company also bought several other companies including Design Prototyping Technologies (a 3D printing service), National RP Support (A dealer and service organisation) and Bits From Bytes, a maker of entry level kit 3D printers. The spree seems to be working as the TDSC stock has been doing incredibly well over the last few months. It seems 3D Systems has embarked on the “big is beautiful” strategy and wants to be able to service any 3D printing need.
