Advanced 3D manufacturing Company Zeda The opening of a 75,000-square foot facility in Cincinnati Ohio has been announced.
Zeda, the resultant brand of PrinterPrezz merging with Vertex Manufacturing.
The new facility, which has been expanded from a 16,000-square-foot space, will be dedicated to providing ‘cutting-edge manufacturing and nano-coating technologies’ to customers. Zeda says the expanded site will provide ‘substantially more capacity for growth’ and expanded capabilities to serve the ‘exponential demand’ for advanced additive manufacturing in its served markets.
Zeda, which has invested USD 20,000,000 in the acquisition of large-format metal 3D printers and secondary processes such as CNC machining to equip its employees, has also invested USD 20,000,000 into the purchase of large and small format metal 3D printers. This facility is AS9100 and ISO 13485 certified and will allow vertical integration for medical cleaning, passivation (passivation), pack automation, lights out manufacturing, and data collection. This will include prototyping, process development, and advanced manufacturing.
Chief Technology Officer Greg Morris will lead the facility and is in the process of building out a ‘top-tier’ team to support the expansion of the company.
“We have seen exponential growth in our Cincinnati business over the past year and expect that to continue for the foreseeable future as we expand our presence in various industries, specifically aviation, defence, energy, medical and space,” commented Morris. “With this new world-class, state-of-the-art facility set to come online in Q3, 2023, we will have the capacity and capabilities to maintain and grow our leading position in the market.”
“This new facility helps Zeda offer value to our customers in multiple ways,” added Steve Rengers, Senior Vice President of Zeda. “Using a portion of the facility, we built out an end-to-end pipeline utilising high-end additive printers, and the latest CNC machines meet stringent requirements across multiple regulated industries. The new facility also provides space for expansion. Zeda will be able to grow along with its customers. This allows us to build out processes and ‘manufacturing cells’ to meet specific customers’ needs – which may entail higher security, proprietary materials, or unmatched efficiency to yield lower part costing.”
Zeda recently closed a 52 million dollar Series B funding round. Zeda also recently installed the first of eight AddUp FormUp 350 metal 3D printing systems.
