People and Culture
Without the dedication and ingenuity of EOS team members across 15 countries, none of our success would be possible. We prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion, and we strive to create a value-oriented, positive and highly effective working environment through a strong focus on employee well-being.
The evolution of EOS since its 1989 founding in some ways mirrors the progression of additive manufacturing itself, as the company transitioned from stereolithography to laser sintering and helped AM become viable for series production.
This art exhibit series, presented at EOS headquarters in Krailling, showcases the work of ingenious artists working in various mediums, displaying how both modern art and additive manufacturing have virtually limitless possibilities.
