The 55,000-square-foot facility is expected to be complete by mid-2018.

Sintavia has announced plans to build a 55,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Florida, near its existing facility in Davie. The new plant, which will also serve as the company’s headquarters, will quadruple Sintavia’s current production capacity, and is expected to be complete by mid-2018.

“With this new facility, we are excited to continue our leadership in the development of the metal AM supply chain for OEMs in precision industries,” says Brian Neff, Sintavia’s chairman and CEO. “We will use this additional space not only to grow our existing competencies in laser and electron beam melting, but also to industrialize new technologies such as metal binder jet manufacturing.”

In addition to the company’s current advanced manufacturing equipment and material laboratory, the new facility will house more than $20 million in new machinery, including larger AM equipment, an automated powder-handling system, an uninterruptable power supply, an inert gas farm, and an enhanced postprocessing footprint. The expansion is anticipated to bring more than 135 new jobs for skilled employees and support staff to South Florida.

“The key to Sintavia’s success over the past few years has been our vertically integrated approach to metal AM,” said Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s president and COO. “Our ability to rapidly qualify machines and processes—through the use of our on-site laboratories, scanning and postprocessing equipment—demonstrates meaningful value to our customers. This same approach will continue on a larger scale with our new production facility.”
