Rapid prototyping and low- to mid-volume manufacturing service provider Star Prototype has rebranded and will now be known as Star Rapid. According to the company, the new name comes at a time when traditional manufacturing operations are being combined with technologies like 3D printing to create new development solutions and reflects the company’s commitment to manufacture high-quality products.

The rebrand also coincides with an expansion of the company’s 60,000 square feet of facilities and investment of $2.5 million into new equipment, including plastic injection molding machines, CNC machining centers, EDM machines, and high-tech inspection and testing equipment.

 “Star Rapid represents the next-generation of manufacturing where precision meets passion,” said Gordon Styles, founder and president of Star Rapid. “The initial founding more than a decade ago, and the recent rebrand to Star Rapid, were partly inspired by principles found within the world of Star Trek. As a company, we embrace high technology to enhance the expertise and experience of our staff, and we strive to operate as a meritocracy. We know that with the right tools and a dedicated team, we can challenge the status quo.”

Over the next five years, Star Rapid plans to expand by an additional 30 percent.
