Stratasys buys another 3D printing services firm

Stratasys (SSYS) is acquiring Interfacial Solutions, a provider of thermoplastics R&D/production services. Deal terms are undisclosed.

Stratasys notes Interfacial has been "instrumental" to its thermoplastic material R&D, and also makes some of it. CEO David Reis states Interfacial gives Stratasys "significant expertise in plastics and filament," and expects it to accelerate the company's materials development for its mainstay fused deposition modeling (FDM) printing platforms, including MakerBot.

Two days ago, Stratasys announced it's buying 3D printing service bureaus Solid Concepts and Harvest Technologies.

    3D Systems gets a lot of bad ink (vs. Stratasys) for its acquisition frenzy growth strategy. I wonder how the comments will run now that Stratasys is on an acquisition spree of its own.


    Long DDD and SSYS.
