PERI, GE Renewable Energy and now construction leader HOLCIM…Construction 3D printing company COBOD seems to attract the giants of this industry to push the building industry forward. With the goal of advancing 3D printing materials, robotics, and automation in construction, HOLCIM has invested an undisclosed amount in COBOD.
The investment follows a range of building projects both organizations completed together – from 3D-printed windmill tower bases with GE, to the world’s first 3D-printed school in Malawi and Africa’s largest 3D-printed affordable housing project in Kenya.
Edelio Bermejo, Group Head of R&D: “At Holcim we are continuously expanding our range of building solutions to build more with less so that we can improve living standards for all in a sustainable way. Working closely with COBOD, we look forward to expanding our TectorPrint range of proprietary 3D printing ink.”
Founder & General Manager, Henrik-Lund Nielsen, says: “I am proud to have Holcim join us as an investor in COBOD a long side our other shareholders, PERI, GE Renewable Energy and CEMEX. Holcim is already a very important partner to us and their focus on making cities greener, build smarter infrastructure and improve living standards is well aligned with our mission at COBOD. With Holcim on board COBOD now covers both distribution, applications, and materials in 3D construction printing and together we will be able to shape the future of 3D printing in construction.”
Holcim’s TectorPrint is an innovative 3D printing ink range that can be tailored for complex applications from residential buildings to infrastructure. Empowering smart design, 3D printing can reduce material use by up to 50% to build more with less with no compromise in performance.
