AddUp, headquartered in Cébazat, France, will celebrate the grand opening of its North American Additive Manufacturing facility – AddUp Inc – in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 22. The new AddUp Solution Center marks the group’s first subsidiary outside of France.

“I am really excited about AddUp’s potential in the marketplace,” stated Rush LaSelle, CEO of AddUp. “Additive is an important industry as it is the first truly digital manufacturing technology, and it is also an efficient and eco-friendly process. It also solves many of the supply chain problems we see today by re-shoring and distributing manufacturing closest to consumption. AddUp has more than 210 years of history in industrial manufacturing and production from our corporate parents, Michelin and Fives, uniquely positioning the company to deliver high quality, high reliability and high productivity to our industrial customers.”

The AddUp team has been working over the past year fitting out the 1,900 m2 digital manufacturing facility. The centre is equipped with dedicated Additive Manufacturing workspaces, including six Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) and two Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machines, a metallurgical lab, an applications training facility and a post-process machining department. The centre will be used as a demonstration facility, as well as providing Additive Manufacturing services, proof of concept development, consulting services and training for US customers in the aerospace, defence, medical and tooling industries. The facility is certified to ISO 9001, AS 9100, and is ITAR and CMMC compliant.

“The AddUp Solution Center aids customers in their AM journey by bringing in the right tools and certifications to de-risk their engagement. This facility allows us to walk customers through the entire process from design of the part & feasibility testing to qualification & delivery,” added Austin Kron, Director of Operations and Services. “This facility is the gold standard for a shop utilising PBF and DED technologies. The quality systems we employ are derived from the foundation of the company and is what ensures that every solution we provide adheres to the industry standards for each specific customer.”

Cincinnati, Ohio, was chosen as the location for AddUp’s North American subsidiary based on its strong manufacturing heritage, access to a talented workforce, proximity to industrial and government partners in metal Additive Manufacturing and support provided by the State of Ohio. Over the past year, AddUp Inc. has created twenty new jobs in the Cincinnati suburb of Blue Ash and, over the next two years, the company plans to more than double in size. This is driven by the expansion of the metal Additive Manufacturing market along with increased investment in product development and sales channels on the part of Michelin and Fives, AddUp’s investors.

“We invite people to come take a look at not only the technologies and solutions we bring to our customers factories, but to also challenge our team with their unique manufacturing problems,” continued LaSelle. “We believe the team at AddUp is uniquely equipped, with our facility here in Cincinnati, to help solve our customer’s most challenging manufacturing problems.”

The AddUp Advantage Center will open its doors on June 22, 2022, from 12pm – 6pm. The Open House event will include tours of the Additive Manufacturing facility, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and provide food and drinks. This event is free and open to the public and local businesses in the community. More information and registration for the Open House is available here.
