Uniformity Labs, the engineered materials company, has appointed Jacob Brunsberg as a non-executive director – joining board members John Ferriola, now Chairman (former Nucor Corporation Chairman and CEO), and Alan Batey (former President of General Motors North America).
Mr. Brunsberg is an accomplished additive manufacturing executive who is currently Chief Executive Officer at Sigma Additive Solutions Inc., a leading provider of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry. He joined Sigma Additive in 2021, with the responsibility for product direction, strategic relationships, sales, and marketing. He was then appointed President, CEO, and Director in April 2022.
Before Sigma Additive, Mr. Brunsberg was the global P&L leader for General Electric’s Binder Jet Technology unit – overseeing strategy, development, commercialization, and overall business performance. Prior to that, at GE, he served as Senior Managing Director of the Central Region, and was tasked with helping establish the US sales infrastructure for post-acquisition integration of several additive manufacturing technology companies, including Concept Laser, Arcam, and GEonX into the newly formed GE Additive business entity.
Mr. Brunsberg holds a Bachelor of Science in Material Science and Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he currently sits on the External Advisory Board.
“Jake’s appointment adds an extremely valuable layer of practical, hands-on experience to our board,” said Adam Hopkins, CEO of Uniformity Labs. “He brings global commercialization skills and deep knowledge of the technical aspects of binder jetting and powder bed fusion, which we will call on to help us deliver the full potential of our technology.”
“I’m fortunate to have played a part in advancing the additive manufacturing industry,” said Jacob Brunsberg. “I am passionate about increasing the addressable market of additive manufacturing by lowering cost barriers to adoption. Uniformity Labs’ technology has the ability to open that addressable market by improving the capital efficiency of powder metallurgy manufacturing, increasing production speeds of equipment, and raising the quality of output. I look forward to working with Adam and the team and my fellow board members to further this significant opportunity.”
