Inside Composites: Can you provide a little background to the Stratasys story and the development of your additive manufacturing technology?

Alissa Wild: We are actually a company that started out of the kitchen of our founder S. Scott Crump about 25 years ago, developing the initial impetus for 3D printing based on fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology. Stratasys has grown to have just under 3,000 employees with 26 global offices and four manufacturing plants, with dual headquarters in Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel. To date, we’ve sold around 150,000 systems and have over 1,200 patents granted or pending globally. Our sales in 2016 were $672.5 million.
