The whole of the Protolabs family are deeply shocked and saddened by the situation unfolding in Ukraine and our thoughts go out to everyone affected.  

Beyond the military and economic implications, the conflict has the potential to negatively influence supply of key commodities such as Oil and Gas, metals and rare earth materials. As we are not directly sourcing from Russian, Ukrainian or Donezk and Luhansk suppliers, Protolabs are not directly impacted from supply disruptions caused from the conflict.

As standard business practice we continually review our supply chain dependencies and this policy will continue to ensure that we maintain our service levels.
