AML3D to establish USA facility following $3.9 million capital raise 

April 4, 2024

AML3D Limited, headquartered in Edinburgh, Australia, has announced plans to establish a standalone, fully operational facility in Ohio, USA, in an effort to increase the company’s capacity to take advantage of the strong and growing demand in the US for advanced manufacturing technology solutions, notably within the defence industry. To fund the expansion, AML3D will be conducting a non-renounceable right issue on a 1:3 basis to raise up to $3.9 million at $0.05 per share.

The Ohio-based manufacturing facility will house AML3D’s US headquarters and operating facility. This facility will be led by the recently appointed president of US Operations, Pete Goumas, and will build AML3D’s ARCEMY Additive Manufacturing machines; fulfil contract manufacturing, alloy testing and prototyping contracts and house AML3D’s US sales and operating functions.

Investment in technology

AML3D will also invest in its software and technology to maintain the company’s competitive advantage and increase the applications of its Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing solutions, particularly in support of the US defence sector. This investment will include expanding AML3D’s software development expertise and capabilities to build out new features that will enhance AML3D’s ARCEMY platform in both build size and speed.

AML3D Managing Director, Sean Ebert, commented, “In CY2023, the first year of AML3D’s US scale up strategy, the Company secured ~$11.9 million in US defence contracts alone and we continue to see surging demand in the US for our technology. The completion of this capital raising will provide the funds to establish a US manufacturing and US national sales team in Ohio to ensure we can take full advantage of this surging demand.”

“Our Ohio based facility will offer greater support to the US defence sector, ensure we are best positioned to continue to win US Defence contracts and have a springboard from which to enter the additional US manufacturing sectors we have targeted, including Marine, Oil & Gas and Aerospace,” Ebert continued. “A secondary but important use of the funds to be raised is for investment to continue to develop our software and technology. Our success to date has been built around AML3D’s market leading Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing solutions meeting the needs of the US defence sector, particularly the US Navy’s submarine industrial base. The continued investment in our technology is designed to maintain that competitive advantage, to drive growth and create long-term value for our existing and new shareholders.”
