Markforged, Watertown, Massachusetts, USA, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Billerica, Massachusetts. The facility is expected to enable the company to more than double its Additive Manufacturing machine production capacity, supporting increased demand for its metal AM and carbon fibre AM systems. 

This is the third major footprint expansion for the company in 2019. Earlier this year, it announced the opening of its European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, as well as an artificial intelligence innovation centre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

According to Markforged, demand for its materials and systems has “exploded” in recent years, with its material production increasing by 81% in twelve months. The new facility is expected to support the fabrication of all Markforged materials, which are used by companies in aerospace, automotive and manufacturing.

“With the significant growth of Markforged printers in the field, the consumption of our materials continues to increase at a rapid pace. Our new facility in Billerica gives us the ability to meet the demands of today and operations for years to come,” stated Matt Gannon, the company’s Vice President of Operations. “Billerica was the perfect choice for our expansion. The region is a hotbed for manufacturing and technology companies, and is strategically located with access to key partners and expertise to support the team.”
