NAMII is a public-private partnership with member organizations from industry, academia and government. NAMII's goal is to transition additive manufacturing technology to the mainstream U.S. manufacturing sector and create an adaptive workforce capable of not only meeting industry needs but also increasing domestic manufacturing competitiveness.
Pennsylvania, providing $5 million in state contributions, was responsible in part for bringing in $30 million in federal funding, helping to locate NAMII in the "Tech Belt" region of eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
"This precise and economical technology means that manufacturing, something we once gave up for lost, is going to come back," Corbett said. "We are seeing nothing less than the beginnings of a new Industrial Revolution."
"To ExOne, Paramount Industries and ACUTRONIC, I say congratulations and thank you,'' Corbett said. "Your willingness to invest in our industrial future marks you as leaders in this new century."For more information on the Governor's commitment to job creation, visit www.governor.pa.gov.
