ASTM International Has Acquired Wohlers Associates

by Terry Wohlers

ASTM International, a global leader in the development of consensus standards, has acquired Wohlers Associates. I could not be happier about the acquisition! Our primary goal was to find a great home and future for our products and services. ASTM International has committed to growing and expanding them for many years to come. I know our current offerings, including the Wohlers Report, will now continue beyond my years.

Wohlers Associates is integrating with ASTM International’s fast-growing Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (CoE), which is based in Washington, DC. The AM CoE is focused on transitioning research to applications through standardization. Also, it supports education and workforce development and provides advisory services. This work supports the growth, maturity, and economic success of the AM industry. With ASTM International’s focus and investment in AM, I am ecstatic about what is ahead.

Together, we can accept a wider range of projects with a larger team to support them. We are already working closely with the technical experts at the AM CoE. As the head of Additive Manufacturing Market Intelligence, I will help create new opportunities for advisory services, publications, education and training, and industry briefings. I will also be involved with the development of the Wohlers Report.

This month marks the 35th anniversary of Wohlers Associates. It has been a fantastic run, but I am not leaving the industry any time soon. I could not be more pleased to be a part of ASTM International and work with the fine people at the organization over the next several years. Stay tuned for more great things to come.
