As Poslovni Dnevnik/Sergej Novosel Vuckovic writes, Leo Greguric from Zagreb’s story first came to light in the Croatian media space one year ago, who then, after completing the third grade of high school, had been running the 3DGlobe company for 3D technologies for a couple of years.
Since then, he has graduated from the popular MIOC and enrolled at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, and progressed in the business segment as well. Everything, he says, opened up to him somehow.
“There’s more and more cooperation going on with companies, we provide or sell them professional equipment for 3D printing, and I’m glad that I achieved my first big job in production. The Croatian company Prostorija, which produces furniture, decided to engage my company,” Greguric stated. He received an order from this prestigious Zagorje-based manufacturer of furniture to make plastic elements for two items – chairs and sofas.
“These are smaller plastic pieces. We made about 2000 pieces of inserts that are installed under the handles of the chairs, and a larger model, but smaller in quantity, about 500 rosettes for the base of a sofa, which serves as protection for both the fabric and for the furniture below it on the ground,” explained the talented young man.
His 3DGlobe company designed and imprinted elements in three dimensions. ”They weren’t geometrically complex, but it was a challenge to make so many of them. The first batch started last October, and we gradually went from smaller to larger orders,” stated Leo.
He isn’t even attempting to hide the fact that he’s very satisfied with the aforementioned cooperation with the Croatian company Prostorija, whose items have won numerous Croatian and international design awards, can be found in a number of international luxury hotels and restaurants, and the French Prime Minister was sitting on no less than one of Prostorija’s sofas. Greguric rightfully hopes to continue working with them.
“This cooperation is one of my most pleasant business experiences. All the people from the Croatian company Prostorija with whom I was in contact have been extremely kind and, most importantly, meticulous and very well organised,” he stated, publicly expressing his satisfaction on social media.
It doesn’t stop there, either, this talented young Zagreb businessman revealed that he was recently in a meeting with the globally known manufacturer of natural cosmetics, Lush, and admitted that he has the potential to work for them, namely making the plastic molds for so-called shower bombs.
“They’re interested in this 3D printing technology because of its flexible design and the possibility of support. I strive for the main value of my job to be the maintenance and implementation of technology in the business of companies, so I want to provide them with consulting and education, and not just give them equipment. Companies like Lush want to have someone locally who, for example, will give them the equipment in a week and train them to work with it,” explained the founder and director of 3DGlobe.
He was, he added, also in the company of his role model, Mate Rimac, talking there with his experts in charge of 3D printing. He pointed out that he will not give up working for private Croatian customers.
“My wish is to establish a webshop where private users, hobbyists, students, will all be able to purchase equipment and materials for 3D printing,” stated Greguric.
