by | Mar 9, 2021 | Company Announcements

Velo3D has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Manufacturing Companies for 2021. We were chosen among the top-ranked in the manufacturing category for making a profound impact on the 3D printing industry.

Innovation has always been a key driver of our success and is an integral part of the company’s DNA. The value of 3D printing as a game-changing manufacturing process has become increasingly clear in the industry, and we are extremely honored and humbled by Fast Company’s recognition of our results.

Despite unprecedented challenges over the past year, Velo3D has experienced tremendous growth and traction for our full-stack manufacturing system. Our advanced laser-powder-bed metal additive manufacturing system has emerged as the breakthrough leader. We help engineers manufacture high-performance, mission-critical parts, often improving performance or replacing current methods of manufacturing altogether. Engineers are empowered to escape design-for-AM restrictions and create integrated parts they actually want and need.

VELO3D offers the most uncompromised opportunity for innovation possible, and we are working with some of the most exciting companies developing groundbreaking new technologies and products for space travel, supersonic flight, and clean power plants.

This award reinforces our commitment to continue providing the highest level of technology, support, and service possible to help engineers build what they want without the constraints of yesterday’s standards.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2021) is now available online here and in print on newsstands beginning March 16, 2021. We hope you will take a look!

Our future is bright and we look forward to another successful year!
