Mr. Nicolai Wammen 

3D Printhuset (Denmark) in double expansion 

– Opens second 3D print store; this time in Aarhus

– Takes over existing 3D Systems distributor and launches a PRO company to service 

Almost precisely a year ago, 3D Printhuset A/S (Danish for “The house of 3D printing”) opened the largest 3D print store in the world, in downtown Copenhagen, with the help of a Danish Minister.  Now 3D Printhuset is opening a second large store, in down town Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Mr. Nicolai Wammen, former Danish Minister for EU relations and Mayor of Aarhus City will cut the ribbon on the grand opening Monday September 28.  

3D Printhuset A/S is at the same time announcing that it has taken over the activities of 3D Systems distributor 3D Scandinavia, and has launched the company 3D Printhuset PRO A/S to service the professional market.3D Printhuset is pleased to announce the grand opening of the second 3D Printhuset 3D printing store in Denmark. 

“Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and therefore a logical choice for our second store”, said Jim Larsen, director of 3D Printhuset A/S.  With a floor area of more than 2,200 square feet, the store is almost as big as the original store in Copenhagen opened a year ago. This store was not only the first in Denmark, but also the largest in the world.  The new 3D Printhuset store located in downtown Aarhus will showcase the latest in 3D print technology, 3D scanners, 3D printed products, supplies and accessories. Suppliers include XYZ Printing, 3D Systems , Artec and Ultimaker. At the same time 3D Printhuset A/S is announcing that it has started up the company 3D Printhuset PRO A/S to service the professional market. 3D Printhuset has taken over the activities and personnel of 3D Scandinavia ApS and is an authorized distributor of 3D Systems, Artec and Roland. The company will start operations this week.

Jim Larsen, the manager of 3D Printhuset, said: "With the opening of the large store in downtown Copenhagen where we made the 3D printing technology much more accessible, we unleashed the demand for 3d printing in Denmark and since then demand has not stopped growing. Part of the new demand originated outside the capital and part of the demand was for professional grade printers and equipment. It has therefore been obvious for some time, that we needed both a presence outside the capital and that we needed to move into servicing the professional market. With this double expansion, opening in Aarhus and the establishment of 3D Printhuset PRO A/S, we will cater for this demand and really cement our position as the “hub” for 3D printing in Denmark”.
