Earlier this month, GE was divided into three public companies: GE Aerospace, GE Vernova, and GE HealthCare. The separation announcement was followed up with the news that GE Additive is now rebranded as Colibrium Additive. GE Additive, the additive manufacturing arm of GE, will now operate as part of the GE Aerospace division.

The name Colibrium Additive is derived from the words ‘collaborative’ and ‘equilibrium’ and is said to reflect ‘the company’s expertise, standing shoulder to shoulder with customers every step of the way on their additive journey, and delivering reliable and scalable manufacturing outcomes.’

“While we are changing our name, we maintain our unwavering focus on our customers, quality, and reliability. We will continue to lead the additive manufacturing industry from the front and positively disrupt it.”

– Alexander Schmitz, CEO of Colibrium Additive

Retiring Brands

As part of the brand transition, Colibrium Additive has announced that the Concept Laser and Arcam EBM legacy brands will be retired. GE acquired these two companies in 2016, which resulted in the launch of GE Additive.

The AP&C powder business has also undergone ‘a minor brand refresh’, which includes the addition of the attribution line ‘a Colibrium Additive business’.

“We were ready for a change. GE becoming three standalone companies provided an ideal opportunity to review our corporate identity. Our new name and brand identity are both modern and dynamic. Both were designed to reflect our focus and company values, the pace of change in the additive industry, while accruing to GE Aerospace’s overall brand identity.”

– Shaun Wootton, Head of Communications at Colibrium Additive
