FreeFORM Technologies, St Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, reports that it has received investment from Ryerson Holding Corporation, a distributor of industrial metals headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

“This investment in FreeFORM marks Ryerson’s entry into a partnership with strategically desired exposure to Additive Manufacturing,” stated Mike Burbach, Chief Operations Officer. “It is an important step forward allowing us to explore synergies, new opportunities and additional value-added capabilities with our customers as we look towards the emerging present and future of the metals industry.”

Chris Aiello, co-founder of FreeFORM Technologies commented, “As we scale our business, it is important for us to align ourselves with people who believe, as we do, that the future of metal manufacturing includes the freedom of design that Additive Manufacturing can offer. Ryerson has a long history in value-added processing and distribution, so our alignment in this aspect of the customer experience is clear.”

FreeFORM states that it is continuing to prepare for the future of manufacturing by adding new capabilities and capacity. It has added several key pieces of equipment in 2022 and has plans to add additional machinery to support Additive Manufacturing before the end of the year.
