Xometry, a leading on-demand manufacturing marketplace, has secured new funding from GE Ventures and existing investors, including Highland Capital Partners, to reach a total of $23 million raised. The Xometry’s software platform has transformed American Manufacturing by orchestrating a network of Small and Medium Size manufacturers across the USA

Xometry is now home to the fastest-growing software driven marketplace of manufacturers. We can now accelerate our investment to meet more of our customer’s needs.”

Xometry’s nationwide network of manufacturing partners fulfill orders placed through the company’s highly popular online platform, which instantly provides pricing, lead times and manufacturability feedback. The easy to use e-commerce platform overhauls a previously time-intensive and inefficient process. It does this by connecting small to medium sized manufacturers (SME), a $50 billion plus market at the heart of the American manufacturing sector, to customers in key American industries, including aerospace, automotive, defense, medical, technology and telecommunications.

Here, Xometry acts as the network orchestrator, enabling engineers and designers to connect with highly–vetted manufacturers who can produce quality parts. Before, the supply chain was fragmented, with manufacturers and customers mismatched on capabilities and needs. Now ordering custom parts is as easy as uploading a 3D file and placing your order. Xometry, much like ride-sharing apps, will then connect customers to manufacturers with available capacity around the country.

We’re thrilled to see local manufacturers across the country build their businesses by being a part of the Xometry Partner Network and securing orders from coast to coast.”

Xometry’s business has grown rapidly over the past several years, with over 4,000 customers and a nationwide network of manufacturing partners across 35 states. Manufacturing partners can join the network at no cost and there is no bidding for jobs. Facilities receive notifications about orders that fit their specific capabilities. With Xometry, small to medium sized manufacturers can spend less time bidding for new business and more time producing parts.
