3D Systems plans to expand its Rock Hill, South Carolina location, reportedly adding 100,000 ft2 to its existing headquarters.

According to the company, the expansion will enable it to consolidate its ‘materials manufacturing, quality, and logistics operations’, and includes an upgrade of its materials development laboratories.

‘While 3D Systems is a global company, our headquarters in South Carolina has been its center for many years,’ said Dr Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO. ‘This expansion of our Rock Hill campus allows us to bring together key elements of the business to gain efficiencies, and to accelerate innovation and customer adoption of additive manufacturing on an industrial scale.’

3D Systems says that the expansion, scheduled to be completed in early 2022, will bring new jobs to the area over the next five years.
