NAMII gets new name aimed at raising its profile



Published: Wed, October 9, 2013 @ 5:18 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — In an effort to raise its profile and further commercialize its efforts, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute has changed its name to “America Makes.”

The new brand was introduced today at a private members-only meeting at the DeYor Performing Arts Center downtown.

“America Makes is a vehicle for [NAMII] to raise our profile, reach a wider audience to include the hobbyist and the entrepreneur, and ultimately, provide a richer member experience,” said Ralph Resnick, founding director of the institute, in a statement. “America Makes sets the stage for us to realize our mission of reinvigorating the U.S. manufacturing industry and jobs market by serving a strong message.”

NAMII is a consortium of more than 70 private companies, universities and nonprofit organizations dedicated to researching, developing and implementing additive manufacturing — a process that uses plastic, metals and resins to build a product layer by layer using 3-D software and specialized machines.
