Earlier this month we acquired two leading French prototypers:  CEP and PROTOMETAL as part of the Company’s expansion of our 3Dproparts™ service in Europe.  To consolidate all of our French operations for increased efficiency and enhanced customer service, our French headquarters has moved to our newly acquired modern facilities in Le Mans.  Says Cathy Lewis, VP of Global Marketing for 3D Systems, “These recently acquired facilities and capabilities have provided the perfect setting to effectively service and support our growing base of 3D Systems and 3Dproparts™ customers in France.”
