Where Are They Now? ZVerse
Over the years, EngenuitySC has featured many innovative companies and initiatives within the Columbia region. As with any risk-taking venture, some have achieved significant growth and success, while others have not. In Where Are They Now?, we’ll take a look at previously-featured companies and how they’ve changed over the years.
3D printing specialist and digital manufacturer, ZVerse, was featured in 2018 as a breakout company for their proprietary 3D printing platform, which enabled rapid conversions from concept to manufacturable product. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the company’s growth at an astronomical pace: The company’s platform and strong network of 3D printing partners enabled them to pivot to become a national leader in designing and manufacturing flexible face shields, a key item of personal protective equipment.
Visible signs of the company’s success include a prestigious Innovation by Design Award from Fast Company, a workforce that has more than doubled over the past year and an expanded new facility. More importantly, the new revenue has allowed ZVerse to build for the long run through new partnerships and major upgrades to their Digital Manufacturing Platform.
