Industrial prototyping firm Proto Labs (PRLB), sometimes hyped as a 3D printing play, says it has no plans to become a 3D printer maker. The company does, however, plan to make its first-ever acquisition in order to improve its manufacturing expertise. CEO Bradley Cleveland says his company plans to "maintain at least 25 percent top-line growth" in the coming years - analysts currently expect Proto Labs to grow its top line 25% this year, and 22% next year.
