Gefertec, LLC, the US division of metal Additive Manufacturing company Gefertec GmbH, Berlin, Germany, is to open its first US facility in Danville, Virginia, USA. The new manufacturing facility will initially be based at Danville’s Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR), before moving to a permanent space in Virginia’s Danville/Pittsylvania County area in future.

The establishment of the new facility will involve an investment of $1.9 million, and is receiving support from the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission with a $45,000 Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund (TROF) grant, while the Danville Pittsylvania Regional Industrial Facility Authority (RIFA) will cover the cost of two years of temporary space at IALR.

“Gefertec is excited to announce the opening of our Danville – Pittsylvania County location as our first US location for our 3DMP Additive Manufacturing business,” stated Andrea Clark, President of Gefertec, LLC. 

Tobias Roehrich, CEO of Gefertec GmbH, added, “This is in alignment with our long-term commitment to Danville and the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research and we are excited to expand our business to the US. Danville has been chosen for its excellent business and community support and its involvement in the advanced manufacturing sector.”
