Australian 3D printer manufacturer SPEE3D gets location in the USA

Australian 3D printer manufacturer SPEE3D announced that it has opened its first manufacturing facility and application center in the U.S. at the John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH).

At the new facility, SPEE3D will manufacture printers while maintaining its manufacturing headquarters in Melbourne, Australia. In addition, an application center will operate, working with customers to identify new applications and develop customized solutions. SPEE3D will draw on UNH’s resources, facilities and talent to drive innovation in additive manufacturing and provide technical support for existing and future 3D printing initiatives.

“Establishing our first U.S.-based location at the Olson Center brings together a world-class manufacturing center at UNH with SPEE3D’s leading cold spray additive manufacturing technology to a region known for its innovation and advancements,” said Byron Kennedy, CEO at SPEE3D. “Although we are an Australian company, we have partners worldwide and a strong presence in America, so it made perfect sense to expand our footprint to address the needs of our partners.”

SPEE3D’s new location is strategically located in one of the most prominent technology centers in the United States. This provides unique opportunities for joint projects and programs with nearby research, maintenance and repair facilities, including the US Department of Defense, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (NH), Bath Iron Works (ME), Army Natick Soldier Research Center (MA), US Army Research Laboratory (MA), Naval Underwater Warfare Center (RI) and Raytheon Technology Research Center (CT).

“UNH’s partnership with SPEE3D underscores the vital role that academic and industry collaboration can play in fostering innovation and cutting-edge research,” said Marian McCord, Senior Vice Provost for Research, Economic Engagement and Outreach at UNH. “We are proud to be an integral part of the state’s innovation ecosystem by providing facilities, a skilled workforce, and access to a robust business and research community. We are thrilled SPEE3D has chosen UNH’s John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center as its first U.S. manufacturing location and look forward to establishing N.H., and UNH, as a global destination for industry.”
