2019/10/09 - EOS is restructuring its company management: Marie Langer, daughter of founder Dr. Hans J. Langer, is new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EOS GmbH with immediate effect, placing the strategic direction of the company firmly in her hands. Her key focus will be on strategy, marketing, communications as well as corporate culture, organizational and people development.

»My vision is that EOS stays at the cutting edge of industrial 3D printing technology and that the company makes a sustainable contribution towards solving the huge challenges facing us today«, says Marie Langer. »We want our technology to do more than driving economic growth. We want it to provide positive environmental and social benefits.«

As managing director Dr. Adrian Keppler will be further focusing on the development of strategic customer and partner relationships. Eric Paffrath, in his function as managing director, will continue to bear overall commercial responsibility for EOS GmbH.

In October, EOS introduced a product line-oriented structure geared towards the needs of its customers and comprising four central divisions: metal systems, polymer systems and materials, software and innovation. This will maximize synergies, accelerate decision-making processes and ensure consistent support throughout the product life cycle.
