Arcam EBM to Expand into New Facility Arcam AB, a supplier of additive man- ufacturing solutions and part of GE Additive, has signed a lease agree- ment with Castellum for its EBM business to move into a refurbished 11,800-square-foot facility in Härryda, Sweden, outside Göteborg. The new and modern facility, almost three times the size of the current site, will offer Arcam EBM the ability to continue to expand. The space will significantly increase machine production capacity and allow for a more collaborative setup within the company by uniting lo- gistics, research and development, services and operations. The facility is expected to be ready for move-in in the first quarter of 2019.
