ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Colfeed4Print is a company founded as a technological spin-off of the Colloidal Processing group of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), which has worked to grow in excellence since its beginnings with the aim of transferring the research group’s knowledge to the company improving our products quality.

MISSION

Our mission is to provide innovative products for printing technologies that focus on bone and tissue regeneration, energy and catalytic systems and decoration sectors. We aim to solve the demand of advanced materials for new processing challenges, while promoting a circular economy, free of waste and environmentally neutral.

VISION

We don’t just sell standard filaments; we manufacture multi-component filaments that enable researchers and companies working in manufacturing all over the world to meet the new industry 4.0 challenges. We are experts in adapting the product to each application in order to meet the expectations of our customers and achieve the best of results.

Equality

The scientific-technical nature of the activity that characterizes COLFEED4Print, requires of highly qualified personnel, graduates with specialization in university master’s degrees and / or ad hoc doctorates to the evaluation / exploitation of our products in different types of market. From COLFEED4Print we have always opted for a transparent, open and competitive hiring policy, without discrimination based on gender, disability or ethnic origin. As a technology-based company, we are fully aware of the need to encourage gender equality in the scientific-technical field, equalizing the possibilities of accessing positions of responsibility in different technological, technical, financial and commercial disciplines.

COLFEED4Print is convinced that increasing the visibility of women in Science and Business is basic to create excellence. Dr. Begoña Ferrari Fernández (Director of Operations and Scientific leader of the research group Tailoring through Colloidal Processing of the Institute of Ceramics and Glass, CSIC) and Dr. Ana Ferrández-Montero (Head of Development FILAMENT-Oss) are founders and leading members with a strong presence across multiple platforms to support the visibility of women scientists and / or entrepreneurs such as Women in 3D Printing and International Society of female professionals (ISFP). Both members promotes equality lecturing invited as given by Dr. Ferrari at the last workshop Women of Distinction in Materials Science or requesting projects as Dr. Ferrández proposal to the National Prize For Woman in Science call organized by L’Oréal-UNESCO Young Talents.
