We’re proud to announce that Stratasys has been officially honored by the government of Minnesota! In an official proclamation, Governor Mark Dayton and Secretary of State Mark Ritchie announced that August 27, 2013 was “Stratasys Day.” The ceremony to celebrate Stratasys Day took place in Edina, Minnesota at an event sponsored by the American Israel Chamber of Commerce of Minnesota. Stratasys CEO David Reis and Stratasys Chairman & Chief Innovation Officer Scott Crump both spoke at the event.
This special designation from Minnesota’s leaders acknowledges Stratasys’ deep ties to the state – the company has been located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota since its founding in 1989 – and the anticipation that the merger of Stratasys and Objet, which was completed in December of 2012, is bringing an influx of high-tech jobs to the state.
The State of Minnesota is expecting great things from 3D printing! Employees of Stratasys the world over are hard at work to bring exciting new products and materials to a wide variety of industries and applications. And if you’re ever in the beautiful ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes,’ please stop by!
