Photo Release -- 3D Systems Expands 3D Printer Filament Materials Manufacturing Capacity In New Facility In Ohio

Stocks in this article: DDD

  • Opens new 30,500 square-foot facility in Barberton, Ohio, more than doubling its footprint from its previous location
  • Expansion for high growth filament materials manufacturing and cartridge assembly for its consumer printers
  • Creates new jobs in local community for assemblers, operators and quality assurance resources

ROCK HILL, S.C., Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that it has opened a new 30,500 square-foot facility in Barberton, Ohio to expand its manufacturing capacity for 3D printer filament materials and plastic extrusion. The expansion stems from growing demand for the company's consumer 3D printers and is based on its acquisition of Village Plastics last year, which brought 3DS key advances in filament-based materials technology and expertise in large-scale materials manufacturing.

The new facility in Barberton dramatically expands 3DS' capacity for both manufacturing 3D printer filaments and the research and development of new and innovative thermoplastic materials. This includes two new industry-leading materials recently developed by the 3DS team that will be manufactured in Barberton. The first raises the sustainability bar with groundbreaking new filament made in part from post-consumer recycled PET (rPET) for the EKOCYCLE TM Cube ® .  The other dramatically increases the utility of 3D printed thermoplastic parts with an engineering-grade nylon filament for the exciting new CubePro TM . Both extend the range of materials support and performance capability of 3DS' growing portfolio of 3D printers.

"This new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will support our expansion and further development of advanced filament-based materials as we meet growing demand for our consumer printers," said Avi Reichental, President and CEO, 3DS. "The Barberton facility doubles our footprint for filament-based materials manufacturing in the local area and reinforces our commitment to sustainable, local manufacturing."
