Its operations adhere to stringent aerospace quality management standards and are AS9100D-certified and Nadcap-accredited.

The Baker organisation will complement Lincoln Electric’s automation portfolio and its new metal additive-manufacturing service business, which is scheduled to be launched mid-2019 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Christopher Mapes, chairman and CEO of Lincoln Electric (www.lincolnelectric.com), said: “We are pleased to welcome Baker Industries to Lincoln Electric and to our automation portfolio’s new additive-manufacturing platform.

"Additive manufacturing is a key strategic growth area in automation; Baker’s expertise and capabilities will assist in scaling our additive-manufacturing services and expand our presence in the aerospace and automotive markets.”
