Investment in production manufacturing company to accelerate global growth
Minnetonka, Minn., Sept 8, 2021 – Today Evolve Additive Solutions (“EAS”) announces that 3D Ventures and its affiliates have agreed to a $30 million growth equity financing in the company. EAS will use these funds to accelerate commercial sales of its SVP (scaled volume production) platform in the U.S., Europe, and Canada. This fundraising follows a period of growth in which Evolve has meaningfully expanded its product portfolio over the past 6 months.
The investment comes in the form of an SPV (special purpose vehicle), with closing is expected in the third quarter of 2021. Proceeds will be used to accelerate the commercial deployments of the company’s high throughput 3D printer.
3D Ventures and its affiliates are seasoned operators and investors with decades of experience in the 3D printing, additive manufacturing and related industries. The principals are Hugh Evans, Joe Allison and Wally Loewenbaum. They bring a unique pedigree of industry talents, expertise and resources to the company in addition to investment capital.
Joe Allison, Managing Partner of 3D Ventures, stated, “I have printed many parts over the course of my career, and in my opinion the Evolve SVP system is the best 3D printer capable of competing directly with injection molding in terms of part quality, part cost and throughput.”
