3D Systems Makes Two More Acquisitions

3D Systems (Ticker DDD) Acquires Sister Companies APP and APM

The behemoth 3D Printing Machine Manufacturer has just acquired companies that focus on rapid prototyping and manufacture in the Aerospace Sector.  This is a further signal that 3D Systems is acting on its strategic intent of making sure it’s reach is not just strong in the home and hobby 3d Printing space but also in the ‘state of the art’ commercial application of all things 3d.

I have been tracking 3D Systems for some time.  (Previously invested my hard earned cash and did very well catching some big share price spurts in 2013.)  3d Systems has fallen back of late with some really heavy hitting reviews as it missed some of it’s forecasts as did some of the larger 3d printing players.  Please note, I am no investment advisor!  I just enjoy following tech innovation.  I was lucky enough to pick up the curve on (DDD) and (ONVO) and did pretty well.  But of late I am not in the market.  Always make your own decisions carefully and do your research on any company you intent to invest in.
