PrinterPrezz, Inc., a polymer and metal 3D printing service provider specializing in medical devices, recently signed a lease to a new all-encompassing facility, adding to the current HQ buildings in Fremont, California. This acquisition doubles their existing Bay Area Innovation Center workspace, increasing their total floor plan to approximately 30,000 square feet.
“With PrinterPrezz being in the heart of Silicon Valley, we have easy access to technology and more opportunities for strategic partnerships,” said Shri Shetty, CEO of PrinterPrezz. “Our new Bay Area Innovation Center will strengthen our ability to accelerate medical device development and it supports our mission to bring new ideas to mass production that currently reside in the hospitals with doctors, surgeons, and innovators.”
“Looking at the medical device landscape,” Shetty continued, “there has not only been an increase in medical device demand but also a strong desire to develop next-generation devices that result in better outcomes. This is in large part driven by the growing older active aging population. Expanding our onsite post-processing development capabilities to mirror technologies at Vertex Manufacturing allows us to transfer processes seamlessly. Our advanced platform enables PrinterPrezz to target life-changing devices that result in better patient outcomes.”
With brand new offices and upgraded workspaces, PrinterPrezz intends to use this expansion as relocation of their headquarters from their previous location, less than a mile away. The new facility is designed with an engineer-to-engineer experience with shared workspaces and ergonomic workstations to improve collaboration and project performance. In addition to the large employee workspace, the new 14,000 square-foot site boasts ample space for additional 3D printing capability and post-processing tools, a room identified to include a BSL-2 lab for bacterial testing, as well an area for product inventory management.
“With the addition of the new headquarters, PrinterPrezz is able to dedicate a larger space to our R&D efforts, which will enable us to dive into new technologies and materials,” said Shetty. “We are excited to enhance our workflow and increase our capabilities to address the ever-changing needs of the medical device industry”.
