PrinterPrezz, Inc., Fremont, California, USA, and its subsidiary Vertex Manufacturing based in Cincinnati, Ohio, have rebranded and will now operate under the company name Zeda, Inc. The new name is intended to reflect the company’s ‘Z to A’ approach, by which the company means it starts with the customer and ends with a product. The rebrand is also intended to represent the strength of both companies and their progress over the last five years, combining advanced manufacturing processes with semiconductor technologies.
Initially created to address the evolving needs of the orthopaedic devices industry, the company has acted as partner to companies in all highly regulated industries, such as medical, space, defense, semiconductors, and aerospace. The newly rebranded company grew exponentially organically and through strategic acquisitions, including that of Vertex.

“In 2018, we entered a new territory with advanced manufacturing of medical devices for the global orthopaedic market. By combining advanced manufacturing processes, like 3D printing, with technologies from the semiconductor industry, we are able to customise and reduce the cost of medical devices for the global population,” stated Shri Shetty, Zeda CEO. “It wasn’t long before we realised that the fusion of these technologies could revolutionise not just healthcare, but advancements in the space, defense, semiconductor, and aerospace industries. Zeda reflects where we came from, where we are today, and where we intend to go.”
As a single entity, Zeda now has facilities in Silicon Valley, California; New Jersey; Ohio and Singapore.
Greg Morris, Zeda CTO, concluded, “This is the next chapter in our growth. As one brand, we are in a stronger position to leverage the full capabilities of both companies more effectively. Over the past year, our Cincinnati [Ohio] team has experienced unparalleled growth across all areas of our business, but, most importantly, our existing customers can continue to trust and count on us.”
