Replique, a secure 3D printing platform provider, and Siena Garden, a well-known German garden furniture brand, announced the production of over 1000 3D printed foot caps or protection covers, revitalising garden chairs. They have made a significant contribution to their shared commitment to sustainability and contributed to a circular economy by incorporating the REPAIR pillar of the 4 R’s of Sustainability (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair).
This is in addition to their “Eternal Spare Parts” concept, which was launched less than two years ago and promotes sustainability by offering continuous replacement parts for garden furniture, thereby extending product lifespan and reducing waste.
Replique produces 1000+ 3D Printed Foot Caps
Replique’s 3D printing platform’s seamless integration enables spare parts to be produced on-demand and locally, eliminating excess inventory and avoiding large minimum order quantities. This not only saves Siena Garden money, but it also improves customer satisfaction by providing better aftermarket services. In addition to foot caps, the Siena Garden webshop sells other repair parts for Holywood swings and garden loungers, such as handles, connecting and moving parts.
This case demonstrates that, in addition to large machinery, 3D printing can make a significant difference for small everyday parts. These spare parts would be unavailable without technology, leaving garden furniture looking worn or discarded.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with Siena Garden. By offering on-demand production without the burden of stockpiling and promoting repair, we aim to make a positive impact on our planet, one part at a time.”– Henrike Wonneberger, COO and Co-founder of Replique
Peter Benthues, CDO of H. Gautzsch Firmengruppe, the parent company of Siena Garden, remarked, “The collaboration with Replique has been another important step in our commitment to environmental responsibility and customer satisfaction. This milestone reinforces our pursuit of delivering long-lasting products.”
With Earth Overshoot Day already on August 2nd this year, a reminder of the importance of living within our planet’s ecological limits, this milestone takes on even more significance.
