Proto Labs, Inc. Opens New Manufacturing Facility In Plymouth, MN

Proto Labs, Inc. (NYSE: PRLB), a leading online and technology-enabled quick-turn manufacturer, has announced today that it has completed renovation of the Plymouth Industrial Building at 2600 Niagara Lane, Plymouth, MN, and will begin operations at this location effective Monday April 28.

This new building will initially house 175 employees, split evenly between office and manufacturing workers. Proto Labs plans to eventually expand that number to 300 employees by May, 2017. The new Plymouth location increases the Proto Labs US manufacturing facilities capacity to support up to 425 CNC machines and 180 injection-molding presses.

Upon completion, Proto Labs will have invested a total of $19 million to purchase the property and renovate the building. During renovation, care was taken to reduce the environmental impact of the project. All lighting in the building was replaced with energy efficient LED lighting. Much of the scrap from demolition was sold or recycled. The HVAC and mechanical systems have been designed to maximize efficiency. An innovative rain-screen system was used to repair the exterior of the building and reduce on-going maintenance.

“We’re pleased to be moving into our new Plymouth building, which will be our fifth building in the Twin Cities area,” said President and CEO Vicki Holt. “The additional location will help us meet the high-demand for our quick-turn, custom parts business.”
