The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce South Central is pleased to welcome one of its new members, Roboze, a 3D printing specialist that allows a wide array of businesses to produce parts and products on site using their innovative technology.
Based in Bari, Puglia, Roboze now has a Houston-area manufacturing facility and office. And in what is great news for the Houston economy, it plans to hire up to 100 new employees in coming months to staff its new plant here.
“We want to really focus now on the U.S. market and have Houston as our second home in the world,” said the company’s founder and CEO Alessio Lorusso in a recent interview with the Houston Chronicle. Currently, he plans to expand production capacity at the new Houston location by 70 percent before the end of 2021.
While 3D printing is not new, Roboze has revolutionized the field by developing and producing 3D printers that manufacturers can use with ease in their own facilities. Its “point-of-use” printers eliminate costs and streamline the process because the users can print products in their own facilities.
Their clients include companies like GE and Leonardo, and the U.S. military.
“They’re on the cusp of something that economists and analysts have been talking about for a while,” said Patrick Jankowski, the Greater Houston Partnership’s senior vice president in the Houston Chronicle article (see link above).
The IACC couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Roboze and their team to the Lone Star State!
