In 2019, SOGECLAIR and AddUp created PrintSky, a joint venture dedicated to the incubation of industrial production projects in the field of metal additive manufacturing for the Aeronautics, Space and Defence industry.

PrintSky, which is 51% owned by SOGECLAIR and 49% by AddUp, aims to provide its Aerospace, Space and Defense customers with an additive manufacturing technology platform that provides access to design, certification and validation services, prototypes and pre-series manufacturing to demonstrate “proof of concept” so that the customer will have all the required data for series production. This global offer is intended to be distinct: SOGECLAIR’s skills in designing optimized solutions, adapted to additive technologies that meet the requirements of the Aeronautics, Space and Defense sectors, in which SOGECLAIR has been recognized by its customers for more than 30 years with. AddUp’s industrial know-how in metallic additive manufacturing technologies through the experience gained by its founders and current shareholders, Fives and Michelin.

The pooling of the respective capacities of SOGECLAIR and AddUp to propose high-performance and scalable production ready additive solutions. The ambition: to become a key player in the Aeronautics, Space and Defense sectors to design, optimize and produce prototypes in additive manufacturing capable of future industrial production.
