The team has also been recognized on the Inner City 100 list by ICIC as published in Fortune Magazine and the San Francisco Business Times’ Fast 100 list of fastest-growing private companies in the Bay Area.

“FATHOM’s culture, expertise, technologies, capabilities, quality, and customer service is driven by our strategic focus on our customers’ need for a complete experience from a brand they can trust and rely on to achieve impactful results,” said Rich Stump, Co-Founder and Principal at FATHOM. “We’re grateful for this recognition and excited about what the future holds for FATHOM.”

FATHOM got its start selling and supporting enterprise-level 3D printing and additive manufacturing systems in 2008. Co-founders Stump and Mihevc then opened a full-service additive manufacturing facility in 2012. FATHOM’s Seattle-based production center opened the following year. Today, FATHOM’s team of experts specialize in additive and traditional manufacturing services (CNC machining, urethane casting, tooling, and injection molding), plus hybrid processes (blending additive with subtractive and formative methods to achieve results not previously possible). The company is ISO 9001:2015 certified, and also offers mechanical engineering and industrial design support, as well as on-site managed equipment services.
