SPEE3D, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, announced that it has opened its first US-based manufacturing facility and applications centre, located at the John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). The new facility is expected to enable SPEE3D collaborate more closely with clients in the United States, including the US Department of Defense.

The company stated that it will produce Additive Manufacturing machines at the new facility, whist working with customers to identify new applications and tailor solutions at the applications centre. Additionally, SPEE3D will leverage UNH’s resources, facilities, and talent pool to drive Additive Manufacturing innovation and adoption while providing technical support for existing and future advanced Additive Manufacturing initiatives.

“Establishing our first US-based location at the Olson Center brings together a world-class manufacturing centre at UNH with SPEE3D’s leading Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology to a region known for its innovation and advancements,” said Byron Kennedy, CEO at SPEE3D. “Although we are an Australian company, we have partners worldwide and a strong presence in America, so it made perfect sense to expand our footprint to address the needs of our partners.”

SPEE3D’s new facility is strategically located at one of the nation’s most prominent tech corridors, offering opportunities to participate in joint collaborative projects and programmes with nearby research, engineering and repair/overhaul facilities. These include the US Department of Defense; the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, New Hampshire; Bath Iron Works, Maine; the Army Natick Soldier Research Center and the US Army Research Laboratory, Massachusetts; the Naval Underwater Warfare Center, Rhode Island; and the Raytheon Technology Research Center, Connecticut.

“UNH’s partnership with SPEE3D underscores the vital role that academic and industry collaboration can play in fostering innovation and cutting-edge research,” Marian McCord, Senior Vice Provost for Research, Economic Engagement and Outreach at UNH, stated. “We are proud to be an integral part of the state’s innovation ecosystem by providing facilities, a skilled workforce, and access to a robust business and research community. We are thrilled SPEE3D has chosen UNH’s John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center as its first US manufacturing location and look forward to establishing NH and UNH, as a global destination for industry.”
