3D Systems reveals plans to expand HQ
3D printer manufacturer 3D Systems has announced that it intends to build on its South Carolina headquarters, adding another 100,000 sq. feet to the facility. The expansion will allow the firm to consolidate its manufacturing, quality control, and logistics operations, and introduce new material development labs that drive greater R&D efficiency.
3D Systems also intends to use the additional space as an enhanced sales environment, in which its engineers can liaise with clients about their manufacturing needs. The move, which is set to be completed by early 2022, is part of a broader restructuring plan announced last year, that aims to return the company to profitability by the end of 2021.
“Through our restructuring and investment activities, we will bring new jobs to the area over the next five years,” said Dr. Jeffrey Graves, President and CEO of 3D Systems. “The combination of state-of-the-art facilities; renowned hardware, materials, and software will be a catalyst for us to take our innovation to new heights.”
JPB Système gains funding for new facility
Aerospace part manufacturer JPB Système has secured funding from the French Ministry for Economy and Finance to build a new state-of-the-art facility. As part of the firm’s broader €30 million ‘Villaroche 2025’ project, it intends to construct the 40,000m2 complex adjacent to its existing factory, providing it with the room it needs for future expansion.
In addition to acting as the company’s main manufacturing base, the additional space will allow JPB to explore opportunities for growth in areas such as mobility, nuclear, oil and gas. The new workspace is also set to include advanced 3D printing and robotics equipment, and the firm eventually aims to develop its own technologies for creating flight-ready components.
“Once complete, our JPB Villaroche 2025 project will epitomize everything that our company represents,” said JPB Système’s CEO, Damien Marc. “That’s to say, a passionate and unwavering drive to push the frontiers of innovation with genuinely ground-breaking solutions, derived from expertise that we’re proud to showcase.”

Caltech professor joins Azul 3D board
Illinois-headquartered 3D printer manufacturer Azul 3D has announced that the California Institute of Technology’s nanotechnology pioneer Julia Greer has joined its advisory board. Greer specializes in 3D printing micro- and nano-materials, and was recognized for her work last year, being named one of CNN’s 2020 Visionaries.
Azul has already made a flurry of changes so far in 2021, adding Zhenan Bao, an expert in creating flexible electronics from Stanford University, and renowned litigators Steven Cherny and Ray Nimrod to its advisory board over the last month.
