DUBAI: Dubai-based Immensa Technology Labs has received approval for additive manufacturing (3D printing) from the Ministry of Investment in Saudi Arabia, representing the first license of its kind in the Kingdom.

The move complements the Kingdom’s efforts to modernize its economy by adopting advanced manufacturing technologies, as well as attracting international companies who operate in the field.

The company has acquired a 10,000 square-foot industrial additive manufacturing facility in Dammam, and plans to establish a network of other 3D printing hubs across Saudi Arabia.

It aims to provide solutions to local and international oil and gas and manufacturing companies with its expansion into KSA.

“Immensa's facility in the KSA includes metal, nonmetal, post-processing, and testing capabilities for oil and gas parts, the first-of-its-kind in the region,” it said in a statement.

Fahmi Al-Shawwa, the company’s CEO, said the Kingdom has the largest manufacturing base in the region, adding it has received strong interest from Saudi-based companies for its services.

Immensa, currently headquartered in Dubai, plans to manage its regional operations from its Saudi offices.
