List Recognizes Area Printing® as a Tech Breakthrough With Potential to Transform the Future
WILMINGTON, MA – (November 17, 2022) – Seurat Technologies – the 3D metal printing leader making manufacturing better for people and the planet – today announced that it has been named to Fast Company’s second annual Next Big Things in Tech list in the computing, chips, and foundational technology category. The list honors technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries.
Manufacturing is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gas emissions, contributing 22 percent of total emissions in the U.S. To begin decreasing their carbon footprint and create a more resilient supply chain, companies need solutions that empower them to move toward zero-emission, high-volume, localized manufacturing.
Seurat’s Area Printing solution helps companies migrate away from casting and other traditional fabrication methods, and reduce harmful environmental pollutants. Today’s award announcement comes on the heels of the company announcing that the 25-ton manufacturing capacity of its Boston-based pilot factory has been filled, which will require expansion into additional full-scale production factories. As an all-electric process powered by 100% clean energy, Seurat is well positioned to lead green transitions in manufacturing.
“For the first time, 3D printing will be capable of competing with traditional fabrication methods like machining, casting, and forging on a per-price basis,” said James DeMuth, CEO and co-founder of Seurat. “The scalability of our technology will allow the customer to manufacture high-volume products at price points comparable to offshore production – except with Seurat’s business model, manufacturing will happen closer to the customer, powered by renewable energy. We see a future of supply chain resiliency that will help our nation work towards our shared economic and climate goals.”
This year, 83 technologies developed by established companies, startups or research teams are
highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses and
society overall. While not all of the technological developments are available in the market yet, each
one is reaching key milestones in order to have a proven impact in the next five years. Fast Company
also recognized 41 honorable mentions. Please find the full list of honorees here.
“Technology breakthroughs and cutting-edge advancements promise to be the solution to some of the world’s most pressing issues. Fast Company is excited to highlight some of the organizations, of all sizes and industry backgrounds, whose technology advancements today will lead to a better tomorrow,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company.
Seurat has raised $79 million from investors such as Capricorn Investment Group, True Ventures, Siemens Energy and Porsche Automobil Holding SE, and has 155+ patents granted and pending. The manufacturing leader was also a recent winner of the BostInno Fire Award by The Boston Business Journal in the cleantech/greentech category. Seurat continues to double its employee headcount year-over-year and expects continued growth to meet demand.
