Stratasys has constructed a new facility to expand production capacity. The company has announced that the 90,000 sq.-ft. building doubles its capacity for machine production. The company purchased the building late last year and finished outfitting it this July. The additional manufacturing space allows for machine production growth with a capacity of 10,000 units per year for professional and production-grade 3D printers.
The new facility will be used to expand production capacity for machines and consumables, and to consolidate warehousing and shipping operations. The added space allowed a reorganization of operations among four buildings in the company’s Eden Prairie, MN campus, and it enabled expansion of machine assembly in the company’s existing manufacturing building.
Stratasys says it cost approximately $6.5 million to improve and build out the facility and another $3 million for new production equipment. The building was occupied in July, and production is expected to begin later this year.
