Additive Manufacturing Tech Start-Up Moves to South Yorkshire

AMP Technology Centre welcomes new occupiers Forg3D  to their innovation community. After operating remotely from Scotland, Founder and CEO Richard Mincher recently secured an office space in the heart of South Yorkshire’s advanced manufacturing cluster between Sheffield and Rotherham.

Forg3D specialise in large format metal additive manufacturing in the aerospace, space and defence sectors. Through a novel additive manufacturing process, Forg3D can deliver a greener, smarter and faster alternative to castings and forgings for those industries looking to innovate in this area – whether that is to reduce carbon emissions, speed up production, or for something as specific as solving the problem of how to manufacture in space.

Launched in September 2022, this high-growth business has already expanded to a team of five in just 14 months and is set to double in size again in 2024 as they ready themselves for new investment and partnerships. 

Forg3D  CEO, Richard Mincher, said, “We’ll be recruiting heavily in the region in 2024. South Yorkshire is the heart of the UK advanced manufacturing sector and access to the rich talent pool that gravitates around this industry was a key attractor for us.

“We also knew that we wanted to be based close to The AMRC and within a community at the forefront of innovation. The other occupiers here all work in the same industry as we do. They are all potential or existing partners, customers or suppliers. It’s the ideal location for us.”

To keep pace with demand and opportunities, Forg3D will be recruiting for a number of highly skilled and experienced engineers, software developers and robotics engineers in 2024.  Other priorities for Forg3D in 2024 include exploring emerging markets in the US and launching a new fundraising drive to further scale the business.
