Thales, one of the most important French companies related to 3D printing in the world, has just announced the opening of what they themselves have dubbed as World Center of Industrial Competence, a new center related to the world's leading metal 3D printing world.
For the inauguration of this new and important center related to the world of metal 3D printing, the company has had the presence of Moulay Hafid Elalamy, the current Minister of Industry, Research, Trade and Digital Economy of Morocco as well as the current Director of Thales, Jean-Claude Derbes and other local authorities.
After a long wait, Thales opens the doors of its new World Center for Industrial Competence
Based on the little information that has been disclosed about this project, it seems that for the construction of this new Thales headquarters, the company has invested 25 millones de euros. With this investment, they hope to get a new headquarters capable of meeting all the international needs of the Thales group and all of its clients.
As for the center itself, thanks to the collaboration of the Moroccan authorities, we are talking about a building that has an area of no less than Sqm 1.000. Thanks to this, Thales is expected to employ more than a score of engineers and technicians from the Moroccan country specialized in the world of 3D printing.
Undoubtedly a new example of how metal 3D printing can be the future of an entire industry thanks, among other things, to the fact that it can offer a significant reduction in costs and development time in the manufacture of metal articles in practically all fields, especially those related to the aeronautical sector.
