Ellison Technologies Inc. Acquires GSC

The acquisition of GSC fits into Ellison Technologies’ growth strategy and mission to equip manufacturers to compete and win, both locally and globally. By purchasing GSC, there will be immediate opportunities for growth beyond the current GSC territory, and opportunities to market software and additive solutions across the U.S. long term.

“We are pleased to add GSC to our portfolio of offerings focused on the advancements in manufacturing and our philosophy of the life of the part; from inception (CAD), first prototyping (3D), through manufacturing (Ellison’s core business),” said Graham Hooper, president, and CEO of Ellison Technologies. “Ellison will continue to evolve into a broader solution provider, helping our customers achieve their business goals to an even higher degree than we do today.”

GSC will continue to operate as a stand-alone company, focused on the same product portfolio that they represent, which includes: SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and its product suite of powerful modeling software, along with 3D Printing provider Markforged.
