As fiscal years come to a close – with generally positive results for 3D printing pure players – the stream of news intensifies. Several acquisitons were and new HQ openings have been completed; and Markforged (NYSE: MKFG) has become the latest company to complete the transition to a new Global Headquarters at 60 Tower Road in Waltham, Massachusetts: a 120,000 sq ft of LEED Gold certified office space.
“We are thrilled to have our entire metro Boston team in one location, as this will foster a stronger sense of community and collaboration. Not only can we be more efficient but our new home gives us the room to have fun and be with each other more often”
This move unites employees who had previously been split between a corporate headquarters and a research and engineering facility in Watertown, Massachusetts. Under one roof, the team can better work together, accelerating the development of the company’s hardware, software and materials innovations.
“This move is a significant milestone for Markforged,” said Shai Terem, President and CEO of Markforged. “It will allow us to continue developing cutting-edge technology and solutions faster than ever before so that our manufacturing customers around the world can rely on us for mission-critical part production right on their factory floors.”
The headquarters features a modern design and amenities to promote teamwork, innovation and employee well-being. The 120,000 sq ft of LEED Gold certified office space includes open work areas, meeting rooms, and a variety of breakout spaces for team members to collaborate and share ideas. The facility is now the home of Markforged’s corporate, commercial, and engineering teams, increasing interdepartmental synergy and customer service by enabling more communication between teams.
“We are thrilled to have our entire metro Boston team in one location, as this will foster a stronger sense of community and collaboration. Not only can we be more efficient but our new home gives us the room to have fun and be with each other more often,” says Dorit Liberman, Chief Human Resources Officer of Markforged. “We believe this move will enhance our ability to foster our ‘One Team’ culture as we continue to grow.”
