2019 Winner Profile

Merck

Project Description:
This originally started as an experiment to explore if 3D printing capabilities delivered in-house would prove valuable and viable. The protection of intellectual property was a major concern with outside services. With 3D printing labs now located in the U.S., Ireland and Singapore, all core business areas have been able to accelerate the discovery, development and manufacturing of products. In the first year of operations, there was an ROI of more than 300%, with an 80% cost savings and 85% time savings to boot. Merck's IT infrastructure teams, traditionally focused on servers, compute and print capabilities, spearheaded this project.
