Since New York City has become our #1 community in the world, we decided to open an office here. Well, to be fair, we were planning on opening the New York office anyways in order take part in America’s 3D printing revolution. Marvin was also getting a little claustrophobic in Amsterdam and expressed interest in the Big Apple.
We landed in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s New Lab. A former US Naval shipyard with a history as long as the battleships that were once produced here, the Navy Yard is owned by New York City and is currently undergoing its largest expansion since World War II to make way for the companies which will shape the future. With views from our office of the entire Manhattan skyline and a city beneath us that may be the center of 3d printing for decades to come, we are stoked to be up and running in New York.
Our trusty co-founder, Bram de Zwart, will be in NYC for meetings over the next few months, so if you have any jet lag advice, he would love to hear it. We’ve expanded the team by bringing on Zach, the company’s first business development member and Alex, for community support in the US. We are looking for our US Marketing and Community Manager as we speak (or write), so if you know anybody great, we would love to hear from them.
We’re kicking things off right by hosting an event at the office this Friday with one of New York’s brightest companies, Quirky, and are heading off to the Maker Faire this weekend to showcase everything 3D Hubs has to offer.
Stop by and say hello anytime.
