French Engineering firm Groupe Gorge, who launched their new 3D printing division at Euromold 2013 last month, announced projections for their 3D printing revenues today. The company's shares will also begin trading as a level 1 sponsored ADR through the Bank of New York Mellon under ticker GGRGY as of today.
In two years, Groupe Gorge is targeting to "attain and then exceed" €5 million in monthly revenues from 3D printing, or 81.7M $US annually. This is approximately equal to the trailing twelve months of all revenue from both voxeljet (VJET) and Arcam AB (AMAVF)...combined. Time will tell if this aggressive target is achieved, but I believe it's well within the realm of possibility due to the proprietary technology of their Prodways lineup of industrial 3D printers.

This additional revenue will from Groupe Gorge flight and driving simulator subsidiary, ECA Faros.

3D printing investors may want to research Groupe Gorge in greater detail. They may find what I did- a high growth company running on all cylinders that's now entering 3D printing with a comparatively modest PE ratio. Moreover, the company's innovative Prodways 3D printer technology may very well be the driver of a big (and fast) jump in revenue.
