We just announced the acquisition of Kemo Modelmakerij B.V. (Kemo), a leading provider of on-demand custom parts services headquartered in Budel, The Netherlands. We plan to continue all of our Kemo operations as 3D Systems Benelux and immediately offer our expanded range of 3D content-to-print solutions for the benefit of design-to-manufacturing professionals and consumers alike.
