Indianapolis-based 3rd Dimension LLC is planning to add up to 45 jobs by 2022. The 3-D printing company, launched by a former IndyCar engineer, says it will invest more than $800,000 into the expansion. 3rd Dimension currently employs nine and will be adding engineering, machinist, sales and production positions.
Plans call for 3rd Dimension to bring its two Indianapolis facilities under one roof.
The company says on-average, the new jobs are expected to pay more than 60 percent higher than the state average. 3rd Dimension creates prototypes and other products using additive manufacturing technology, also known as 3-D printing. Its list of clients includes Cummins, Rolls-Royce and Purdue University.
Founder Bob Markley says "starting a new business in a new field is always a challenge, but as a former IndyCar engineer and strategist, I have learned to adjust to the situation which is presented. In fact, over half of our current team are recovering racers. Their backgrounds and willingness to push the boundaries of what is possible has really separated our capabilities and knowledge from everyone else out there. As we do have very unique capabilities, we are seeing accelerating growth and can count seven companies in the Fortune 500 top 50 as clients with more to come."
3rd Dimension was launched in 2013. It will receive more than $570,000 in conditional tax incentives and training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. as a result of the expansion plans.
