Initiated by Manager Magazin and Bain & Company, this year's Game Changer award went to high-end additive manufacturing (AM) solution provider EOS, beating 77 other companies to win the ‘challenger’ category.

"As the market leader and pioneer of the revolutionary industrial 3D printing technology, we considered EOS an obvious candidate for the Game Changer Award," said Olaf Koch, CEO of Metro AG, who delivered the laudatory speech for EOS during the award ceremony in November. "EOS' development since its formation in 1989 until the present provides impressive proof, as the systems the company developed progressed from rapid manufacturing of prototypes through small series production applications to the production of larger volumes. EOS is an excellent example of technical innovation and entrepreneurial creative power. The current and especially future impact of the technology on value chains in industry and the entire economy is enormous."

Dr Hans J. Langer, founder and CEO of the EOS Group, explained, "We are very pleased with this award and would like to thank the initiators and the jury. It shows us that we are making the right decisions on the basis of our long-term business strategy. With this award, Manager Magazin and Bain & Company are also honouring a technology that is already heralding a paradigm shift in engineering and production and that plays a role in gradually creating entirely new business models at our customers."
