Mannheim, Germany/October 26, 2022 — Replique announced that Nikolas “Nick” Dinges has joined the company as Chief Technology Officer.
As the new CTO of Replique, Dinges will be responsible for developing their technology platform which enables OEMs to provide parts on demand to their customers through a fully encrypted, global, and decentralised 3D printing network. As well as strategic development, Dinges will focus on driving further expansion of the network of service bureaus and ensuring seamless integration with customers’ existing manufacturing workflows.
Dinges joins from Hitchhiker, an independent company providing flight rate management software solutions, where he held the role of CTO. At Hitchhiker he coordinated the development of a platform designed to manage bookings with hundreds of data sources, active in more than 25 countries.
“Nick is a great addition to the management team, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” comments Dr. Max Siebert, CEO and Co-Founder of Replique. “With more than 25 years’ technical, strategic and product management experience in the creation of highly scalable commercial software, we’re confident Nick is the right person to further drive our offering to OEMs.”
“Replique’s model enables the fundamental promise of 3D printing – parts when you need them, where you need them, in the exact quantity you need them. Decentralised production using 3D printing has great cost, design and logistical benefits to OEMs, and as supply chain disruptions continue, Replique’s proposition becomes increasingly beneficial. I’m excited to be joining the company at such a pivotal time” adds Dinges.
