GS Verde advises on investment deal to spark new era of Welsh digital manufacturing

A publicly announced £2m investment in Apex Additive Technologies is set to open up significant potential for creating a digital manufacturing centre of excellence in South East Wales, in a deal advised on by the GS Verde Group.

Apex is regarded as an exemplary company founded on green manufacturing processes that reduce waste and energy consumption, and help drive circular economies.

With a diverse customer base extending across dynamic sectors such as Life Sciences, Aerospace, Automotive, Oil & Gas and beyond, the versatility of Apex's offering creates an opportunity to form a rich ecosystem that enables regional businesses to break new barriers.
