Engineering materials company Uniformity Labs has appointed Jacob Brunsberg as a non-executive director. He joins board members John Ferriola, now chairman (former chairman and CEO of Nucor Corporation), and Alan Batey (former president of General Motors North America).
Jacob Brunsberg is currently the CEO of Sigma Additive Solutions Inc, a leading provider of quality software for the commercial 3D printing industry. His experience in binder jet technology strategy, development and commercialization, as well as his deep understanding of the additive manufacturing market, make him ideally suited for this position.
Prior to joining Sigma Additive, Brunsberg led the global Binder Jet Technology business unit at General Electric and served as senior managing director of the Central Region at GE, where he was responsible for the U.S. sales infrastructure for post-acquisition integration of companies such as Concept Laser, Arcam and GEonX.
“Jake’s appointment adds an extremely valuable layer of practical, hands-on experience to our board,” said Uniformity CEO Adam Hopkins. “He brings deep knowledge of and practical experience in the commercialization of new technology in the additive ecosystem, which we will call on to help us deliver the full potential of our technology.”
“I’m fortunate to have played a part in advancing the additive manufacturing industry,” Jake said. “I am passionate about increasing the addressable market of additive manufacturing by lowering cost barriers to adoption. Uniformity Labs’ technology has the ability to open that addressable market by improving the capital efficiency of powder metallurgy manufacturing, increasing production speeds of equipment, and raising the quality of output. I look forward to working with Adam and the team and my fellow board members to further this significant opportunity.”
Uniformity Labs develops innovative material and software solutions to expand global markets for commercial and industrial 3D printing. Their patented technology enables dense printing with minimal shrinkage of binder-jet materials, providing significant cost savings, speed and quality improvements for all popular AM printers.
With the appointment of Jacob Brunsberg, Uniformity Labs is setting another milestone to expand market access for additive manufacturing by lowering cost barriers to adoption while increasing production speeds and output quality. This underscores the increasing importance and potential of additive manufacturing technologies and will further drive the development and adoption of 3D printing technologies.
