Additive Manufacturing provider Rapid Application Group (RAG), headquartered in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA, recently held an opening ceremony for its new 15,000 ft2 (1,394 m2) AM facility, located at its headquarters as part of the company’s growth strategy. The grand opening featured speeches by state and local government officials, a review of the AM industry, and the ribbon cutting for the new facility.

RAG was founded by Terry Hill, CEO, and Jason Dickman, COO, with the aim of delivering the country’s best production services and solutions to customers through a wide range of AM and traditional manufacturing technologies. RAG is accredited with certifications for AS9100D, ISO 9001, ITAR, and HUBZone, and delivers mission-critical additively manufactured parts primarily in the aerospace and defence sectors, but also supports other industries. 

“Rapid Application Group was founded by seasoned military veterans and Additive Manufacturing experts to meet mission-critical production work for manufacturers across all industries,” stated Hill, CEO, Rapid Application Group. “This new facility enables both growth of the company and more opportunities to mentor and train military veterans in the advanced manufacturing field.”

RAG hires military veterans and, in its hiring practises, aims to make 50% of its staff veterans. The company has also established a non-profit veteran outreach effort called the RAG Friday Foundation which aims to improve the quality of life for veterans.
