It’s really no surprise at all to hear that WhiteClouds, the largest full-color 3D printing lab in the world, is expanding further. We’ve been following this dynamic company, founded in 2013 and headquartered in Utah, as they have produced one incredible project after another, from their largest and most intricate 3D printed residential model ever to detailed and vibrant 3D printed dream kitchens in miniature–to 3D printed orbital representations in full color for NASA.
It’s a no-brainer to think this thriving company, enormously passionate and dedicated to 3D printing, might need more space and more machines–and as that is the case, they also invite you to celebrate with them on October 27th, as they host an open house for businesses, media, government officials, and the general public as well.
WhiteClouds will now be not only settling into their new 60,000 square foot facility, but they will also be installing and integrating 14 new full color 3D Systems 3D printers into their production area. This will bring their ‘fleet’ to 24 printers, all operating in full color, and all from 3D Systems, including:
- ProJet 660Pros
- ProJet 4500s
- ProJet 860Pro
Their future focus is on developing sales in the business-to-business arena, as well as gaining new and strategic partnerships.
“Our new facility is designed for world-class manufacturing,” said Jerry Ropelato, Whiteclouds CEO. “Its location is very strategic and our layout is conducive to lean manufacturing principles and high-quality production.”
“We’re excited about what we’ve built in nearly three years and where we are going. We have evolved as a company. We want to show what we have to offer and introduce more companies and people to 3D printing.”
“Whiteclouds’ 3D print services expansion and expertise in full-color printing allows them to deliver exceptional service and products to their customers looking to bring their ideas to reality in full color,” said Charlie Grace, Chief Revenue Officer, Professional Products, 3D Systems. “We’re thrilled that they have selected our ColorJet printing technology to expand their full color production services, and look forward to their continued growth.”
With expansion comes new hires as well, and WhiteClouds has brought on numerous new individuals who they see as helping to both strengthen and increase their growth and production overall.
WhiteClouds has also announced numerous new additions to their staff, like COO, Joey Skinner, who will oversee production and develop processes that make the company as efficient as possible.
“A major part of our offering is the capacity to deliver,” said Skinner. “We are the largest full-color 3D print services provider in the world. With this new building, we have the capacity to hold that prestigious title and to continue to grow that capacity in the future.”
Braden Ellis, CRO, joined the team to manage partnerships and strategic alliances to create future growth and revenues.
“Our goal is to be the hub for companies looking to expand their offerings through 3D printing,” said Ellis. “Nearly every industry can benefit from this technology and we are here to make that possible in a way that is cost effective and easy to implement.”
The open house, on October 27th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature numerous 3D printing demonstrations and food. If you are interested in attending the open house, you can register and find more information here. Discuss WhiteClouds major expansion here.
