Materialise: driving your innovations


Materialise’ outlook on 2009
by Wim Michiels

Dear Sir, Madam,

At the end of 2008, we are looking back and see that it has been a turbulent year. And it still is: the economic uncertainty has not yet disappeared.

Typically, there are two essential reactions when a crisis hits:
• improve efficiency
• innovate products, processes, strategies

This is exactly what Materialise’ technology is all about. For nearly two decades, we have been offering technology to increase productivity, decrease costs, streamline processes, innovate product design and the according (additive) manufacturing process. This also means that our technology is often experienced as disruptive – which causes hesitations when things (seem to) go well, but can be a major advantage when vital improvements are needed as is currently often the case.

In this challenging period, Materialise is more than ever an excellent partner. It is fundamental to our company to improve your efficiency and drive your innovations.

With that, I want to wish you the very best for 2009. I truly hope we can help you and your company to make a difference in 2009 by shifting to a higher gear in efficiency and innovation. That is what Materialise is about.

Warm Regards,
Wim Michiels
