Cumberland Additive, headquartered in Pflugerville, Texas, USA, has appointed Mark Straszheim to lead operations at the Neighborhood 91 advanced manufacturing production campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Straszheim assumes the position of Regional Director and Advanced Materials Lead, supervising the construction of the 1,600 m2 facility, managing the installation of new advanced manufacturing equipment, and leading the organisation’s day-to-day sustainable operations.

Straszheim comes to the Cumberland leadership team with a background in materials science and engineering, with an emphasis on commercial and operational expertise. Neighborhood 91 is said to have become a passion project for Straszheim as he shares his vision, “to create a truly digital manufacturing and customer experience at N91.” The team is finalising design and construction details and making progress to complete the office and manufacturing space within the next few months.

“[Neighborhood 91’s] location, with its proximity to Pittsburgh International Airport, along with a skilled workforce coming from world class educational institutions, will provide our customers with tremendous value in facing supply chain challenges by reducing lead times and producing quality parts,” stated Dawne Hickton, Cumberland Additive chairperson.

Cumberland Additive offers series production of parts and engineering design services in both metals and polymer materials using Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing technology. Both locations will continue to serve major markets such as aerospace, defence, space, energy, and nuclear.

The company expects to be operational at Neighborhood 91 by the end of Q2. They have already taken delivery of an SLM®500 system and a HAAS UMC-1000, allowing end-to-end solutions in metal Additive Manufacturing using titanium, aluminium, and nickel alloys.
