Zeda opens Advanced Manufacturing Digital Foundry in Cincinnati, Ohio

Zeda, a specialist in advanced 3D manufacturing and nanotech solutions for the medical, aerospace and defense industries, announced the opening of a new 7,000-square-foot facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, offering customers state-of-the-art manufacturing and nanocoating technologies.

The new facility expands the existing 16,000-foot facility, providing more capacity and expanded capabilities to meet the exponential demand for advanced additive manufacturing.

Zeda has invested $20 million in state-of-the-art equipment to focus on large- and small-format metal 3D printing, as well as secondary processes such as CNC machining. The facility will be AS9100 and ISO 13485 certified and will focus on highly regulated industries. It will support the vertical integration of medical cleaning, passivation and packaging automation, as well as lights-out manufacturing with advanced technology and data acquisition.

“We’re excited that this facility is coming on stream,” said Kishore Karkera, co-founder and COO of Zeda. “It signals that we’re on a solid growth path and gives us the necessary room and utilities to expand our capacity and capabilities to meet the growing demand for localizing supply chains. With the recent closure of our $52 million Series B funding round and the launch of our new facility, we’re pushing forward with our vision to help our served industries and customers build things better.”

Leading the new facility will be Greg Morris, CTO of Zeda. He is building a high-caliber team to support the company’s expansion and increasing demand for the services it offers.

“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, defense, energy, medical, and space. 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,” Morris said.

“This new facility helps Zeda offer value to our customers in multiple ways. Using a portion of the facility, we built out an end-to-end pipeline utilizing high-end additive printers, and the latest CNC machines meet stringent requirements across multiple regulated industries,” said Steve Renger, Senior Vice President of Zeda.

“We also ensured the new facility provides physical space for growth. In that way, Zeda can grow with the customer. 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,” added Renger.
