Sintavia LLC, a Tier One metal additive manufacturer, broke ground on a new 55,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility in Hollywood, Fla. According to Sintavia, the $15 million plant is the first of its kind to employ lean manufacturing principles for large-scale metal additive manufacturing. It is expected to open later this year.

The facility is expected to result in 110 new jobs for skilled technicians and support personnel. It will house over $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment, including metal printers, hot isostatic presses, vacuum furnaces, a metallurgical and mechanical lab, post-processing equipment and a CT scanner.
