FORG3D, based in Edinburgh, UK, has expanded its operations at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham, UK, just a few months after establishing a base. After operating remotely from Scotland, founder and CEO Richard Mincher secured office space within the AMP, however, continued growth has seen FORG3D move to a recently completed unit on the AMP as it looks to double staff numbers this year.

The company intends to spearhead the Green Fourth Industrial Revolution and to transform the realm of large-scale metal Additive Manufacturing by offering the repeatable quality of forgings combined with the benefits of Additive Manufacturing.

Through a novel Additive Manufacturing process, FORG3D looks to deliver a greener, smarter and faster alternative to castings and forgings for companies in the aerospace, space and defence sectors that are looking to innovate in this area – whether that is to reduce carbon emissions, speed up production, or for something as specific as solving the problem of how to manufacture in space.

“We’ll be recruiting heavily in the region in 2024. South Yorkshire is the heart of the UK advanced manufacturing sector and access to the rich talent pool that gravitates around this industry was a key attractor for us,” Mincher shared. “We also knew that we wanted to be based close to The AMRC and within a community at the forefront of innovation. The other occupiers here all work in the same industry as we do. They are all potential or existing partners, customers or suppliers. It’s the ideal location for us.”

To keep pace with demand and opportunities, FOR3D will be recruiting for a number of highly skilled and experienced engineers, software developers and robotics engineers in 2024. Other priorities in 2024 include exploring emerging markets in the US and launching a new fundraising drive to further scale the business.
