SPEE3D, a metal additive manufacturing company, has opened its first US-based manufacturing facility and applications center, located at the John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). The new location will enable SPEE3D to collaborate more closely with clients in the United States, including the US Department of Defense.

SPEE3D will manufacture printers at the new facility, while maintaining its manufacturing headquarters in Melbourne, Australia. The company also will staff an applications center and work with customers to identify new applications and tailor solutions based on their specific needs. Additionally, SPEE3D will leverage UNH’s resources, facilities, and talent pool to drive AM innovation and adoption while providing technical support for existing and future advanced 3D printing initiatives.

“Establishing our first US-based location at the Olson Center brings together a world-class manufacturing center at UNH with SPEE3D’s leading cold spray additive manufacturing technology to a region known for its innovation and advancements,” said Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D. “Although we are an Australian company, we have partners worldwide and a strong presence in America, so it made perfect sense to expand our footprint to address the needs of our partners.”

SPEE3D’s new location is strategically located at one of the nation’s most prominent tech corridors – offering unique opportunities to participate in joint collaborative projects and programs with nearby research, engineering, and repair/overhaul facilities. These include the US Department of Defense, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (NH), Bath Iron Works (ME), the Army Natick Soldier Research Center (MA), the US Army Research Laboratory (MA), the Naval Underwater Warfare Center (RI), and the Raytheon Technology Research Center (CT).

“UNH’s partnership with SPEE3D underscores the vital role that academic and industry collaboration can play in fostering innovation and cutting-edge research,” said Marian McCord, Senior Vice Provost for Research, Economic Engagement, and Outreach at UNH. “We are proud to be an integral part of the state’s innovation ecosystem by providing facilities, a skilled workforce, and access to a robust business and research community. We are thrilled SPEE3D has chosen UNH’s John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center as its first US manufacturing location and look forward to establishing NH, and UNH, as a global destination for industry.”
