Zeda, Inc., Fremont, California, USA, has announced the opening of a new 7,000 m2 facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. Providing a substantial increase from its existing 1500 m2 site, the new facility provides a larger capacity for growth and greater capabilities to serve the demand for advanced Additive Manufacturing and nanotech solutions in the medical, space, aerospace and defence markets.

“This new facility helps Zeda offer value to our customers in multiple ways. Using a portion of the facility, we built out an end-to-end pipeline utilising high-end additive printers, and the latest CNC machines meet stringent requirements across multiple regulated industries,” said Steve Rengers, Senior Vice President of Zeda.

“We also ensured the new facility provides physical space for growth. In that way, Zeda can grow with the customer. This allows us to build out processes and ‘manufacturing cells’ to meet specific customers’ needs — which may entail higher security, proprietary materials, or unmatched efficiency to yield lower part costing,” added Rengers.

Zeda has reportedly invested $20 million in new state-of-the-art capital equipment to focus on both large and small-format metal Additive Manufacturing and secondary processes, including CNC machining. It is also said that facility will be AS9100 and ISO 13485 certified, meeting the demands of highly regulated industries. The facility looks to support the vertical integration of medical cleaning, passivation, and pack automation, and lights-out manufacturing with advanced technology and data collection capabilities. It will also support prototyping, advanced manufacturing technologies, and process development.

“We’re excited that this facility is coming on stream,” added Kishore Karkera, co-founder and COO of Zeda. “It signals that we’re on a solid growth path and gives us the necessary room and utilities to expand our capacity and capabilities to meet the growing demand for localising supply chains. With the recent closure of our $52 million Series B funding round and the launch of our new facility, we’re pushing forward with our vision to help our served industries and customers build things better.”

The new facility will be led by Greg Morris, CTO of Zeda, who shared, “We have seen exponential growth in our Cincinnati business over the past year and expect that to continue for the foreseeable future as we expand our presence in various industries, specifically aviation, defence, energy, medical, and space. With this new world-class, state-of- the-art facility set to come online in Q3 2023, we will have the capacity and capabilities to maintain and grow our leading position in the market.”
