Proto Labs, Inc. (NYSE: PRLB), a leading online and technology-enabled quick-turn manufacturer, today announced record financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Highlights include:

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 increased to a record $42.0 million, 29 percent above revenue of $32.5 million in the third quarter of 2012.

“Our world-wide marketing and sales efforts led to a record number of product developers selecting Proto Labs to help them accelerate their ideas to markets. This resulted in record revenue globally and in each of our geographic markets. As we prepare to roll out additional services over the next few quarters, we remain confident that our ability to offer solutions to product developers will continue to drive our business forward,” said Proto Labs’ President and CEO Brad Cleveland.
