3D Systems Expands Manufacturing Operations In South Carolina

Nov. 5, 2013
The increased demand is from 'strong materials sales, increased advanced manufacturing activities and meaningful consumer products revenue,' CEO says.

3D Systems announced last week that it is investing $10 million to expand its Rock Hill, SC, manufacturing operations generating 145 new jobs.

The company provides 3D content-to-print solutions including 3D printers, print materials and on-demand custom parts services for both the professional and consumers markets with materials ranging from thermoplastics, metals, ceramics and edible sugar.

"To accommodate unprecedented demand for our products, we are expanding our manufacturing operations in the Charlotte region.," said Avi Reichental, CEO of 3D Systems Corp.

The increase demand was from “stronger materials sales, increased advanced manufacturing activities and meaningful consumer products revenue,” according to Reichental, and resulted in third quarter revenue growing 50% from the prior year to a record $135.7 million.

And the growth will continue. “Additive manufacturing has the potential to completely redefine manufacturing in certain areas,” said Jim Williams, vice president of Aerospace & Defense at 3D Systems in an article entitled “Why You Need an Additive Manufacturing Strategy.”
