Fillamentum a.s. (previously Parzlich s.r.o.) is an innovative Czech company with extensive know-how in the field of polymeric materials with a diversified product and customer portfolio. The company is based in Hulín, and since 2011 it has been producing special polymer products, mainly bowden linings, special technical pipes, and hoses for industrial use.
However, the fastest-growing segment, and one with the great potential, is the production of filaments for 3D printers. In this field, Fillamentum ranks among the most recognized manufacturers globally. A dynamically growing company has evolved from a small start-up.
Thanks to close cooperation with universities and its own research and development in the field of applications of polymeric materials, the company maintains a significant technological lead in the 3D filament segment. Although the field of 3D printing has been developing very fast, the company is able to keep up with the emergence of new materials for 3D printing, and it even sets trends in innovative materials. In addition to filaments, the company manufactures products for the automotive, food, and chemical industries, as well as healthcare.
The market was hungry; there was a gap, so the production of filaments took off immediately. But I saw more potential than the six basic colours and two printing materials.
The properties of printing materials can be scaled beautifully, and customers can be offered a full range of product lines. So we decided to enter the market with professional materials and shades that fully corresponded to the RAL scale, which was not common at that time.
Every month we try to launch a new product. However, the need to introduce an innovation onto all markets at the same time is delayed by logistics. That is why we are preparing to establish a U.S. branch. It will not deal only with 3D printing, but also with our other products, especially for the automotive industry.
