Sintavia has officially opened its new 55,000-square-foot headquarters and advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Florida.
The company is a provider of additive manufacturing services to the aerospace and defence industries, with the launch of the new site is this year looking to double its 3D printing capacity to enhance that offering.
Currently, the advanced manufacturing facility boasts $25 worth of equipment, including medium and large-format metal 3D printing systems, EDMs, post-processing machines, wet-booths, and several furnaces. Much of this equipment is being dispersed across several different manufacturing rooms per the alloy being processed, while a large-scale powder management system, an apparently uninterruptible power supply, an inert gas farm, and a production acceptance quality control room have all been implemented to improve Sintavia’s set-up.
Upon the opening of its new headquarters, Sintavia invited more than 150 customers, industry partners and government officials to join the celebrations. Among them was Sumitomo Corporation Americas, a growth equity investment partner, whose CEO shares a confidence with Sintavia’s leadership team that the new facility can enable the company to deliver true additive production and do so globally.
“This new facility is the first of its kind in North America to offer large-scale AM production coupled with a robust aerospace quality management system,” commented Brian Neff, Sintavia’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As we grow, it will serve as a template for future vertically-aligned advanced manufacturing facilities around the US and the world.”
“Sintavia has proven itself as a leader in the industrialisation of AM production,” added Masaki Nakajima, CEO and President of Sumitomo Corporation of Americas. “We are excited to work with the entire Sintavia team in their new facility as they continue to grow.”
The new facility provides more than 130 new jobs and Sintavia estimates is capable of producing tens of thousands of parts per year and around $100m in revenue.
