Prosilas s.r.l, a leading European provider of 3D printing services based in Italy, has been acquired by Prototal Industries, a leader in additive manufacturing and polymer injection molding in northern Europe.

In January 2021 we got in touch with the Prototal Group and a great feeling was immediately established. Even then, I felt that this collaboration could be a winner for Prosilas. Our visions were aligned and have a really good team with which we collaborate in a very natural and dynamic” Vanna Menco, CEO Prosilas
