“As an association of various industrial 3D printing (Additive Manufacturing) companies, we support the security and foreign policy course of the German Federal Government, European Union, and NATO against the military actions of Putin and his followers in Ukraine. We welcome the measures imposed so far and are prepared to support any necessary tightening. Business and politics must stand side-by-side in defense of freedom, peace, and democracy.
Together we are strong.
It is with great concern that we look at the current situation and express our solidarity with all people affected by the war, who deserve any possible support. For this reason, we have decided to suspend all business activities in the Russian Federation until further notice. We fully support the measures taken by the international community and trust that all parties involved will exhaust all possibilities at diplomatic level to bring about peace and avoid further innocent victims. The war must end quickly.
In addition, our association of companies offers full support and participation for all necessary humanitarian aid and solution approaches. We stand behind the Ukrainian people and all those committed to freedom, peace, and democracy.”
