“Working with an early stage high-tech company is a unique opportunity,” Mr. Mathews said. “The 3D printing industry is like the Wild West: It’s chaotic, it’s raw and it’s fun. Best of all, I have the opportunity to use my 20 years of high-tech business-to-business expertise to develop and execute a plan for rapid growth in what’s expected to be a $12 billion industry by 2025. I’m working with owners who are pushing the boundaries of innovation and, more importantly, share the same values and vision I have. Given all that, Airwolf 3D is the perfect fit for me.”

A couple of weeks ago, Airwolf 3D unveiled their latest 3D printer, the AW3D HDx, one which surprised many within the industry, as it is capable of printing at extremely high temperatures, making it ideal for printing with Polycarbonate and Nylon filaments. Every one of Airwolf’s 3D printers are manufactured on American soil, in the company’s 15,000 square foot Costa Mesa, California facility.  As the market expands, the company will need the experience, that Mathews, who has been employed in the tech industry for over 20 years, has acquired.
