Force India teams up with 3D Systems
4 January 2013 – Force India has signed a new technical partnership with 3D Systems Corporation ahead of the 2013 season, a market-leading supplier of 3D content-to-print solutions. The Silverstone-based outfit has been making use of the company's machinery for a number of years, primarily for the construction of wind tunnel model components.
"We’ve been working with 3D systems as a customer for many years, so we are delighted to forge stronger links with a company that is the market-leader for rapid prototyping technology," said Team Principal Vijay Mallya. "We use their technology on a daily basis to manufacture wind tunnel model components and this new relationship will hopefully allow us to get performance to the car faster."
In November last year, Mallya announced that Force India's board members had approved a bonus investment of 50 million pounds to be used in future campaigns.
