Investment in 3D

YOUNGSTOWN

Mahoning Valley Business Alliance announced Monday it has invested in Freshmade 3D, a company affiliated with the Youngstown Business Incubator, according to a news release.

“There is so much room for development and growth as these new technologies for [additive] manufacturing start to make their impacts,” said Joe Danyi, a partner in the MVBA development group. “I think Freshmade 3D has the right service and product offerings to start making strides of integrating printed 3-D technology into traditional production of manufactured goods.”

Freshmade 3D previously has received attention for making life-sized bobblehead dolls, a 3-D-printed bowling ball and a large 3-D-printed sculpture for Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
