Clogau Gold Growth through Innovation award Goes to: At 3D-Squared

Success through innovation and cutting edge technology has been the driving goal of Flintshire-based company At 3D-Squared Limited, and this was fully recognized last week when the firm scooped the ‘Clogau Gold Growth through Innovation’ award at the Achievement Wales 2011 awards ceremony in Bangor. This accolade comes after At 3D-Squared won the 2011 Flintshire Business Award for Innovation in October, earlier this year. Winning this award was not a given, At 3D-Squared had to fight off some tough competition but the innovative work the company has undertaken with 3D Printing technologies shone through.

Andrew Allshorn, Managing Director of At 3D-Squared in no way expected to win, but was absolutely delighted to be presented with the award by TV Newsreader, Nicholas Owen. Commenting on the night, Mr Allshorn said, “I am a product designer by trade and was up against some really tough businesses, so it is just amazing to win.”

He continued, “I travel a lot in Europe and this has made me realize tonight that I could be doing so much more right here in North Wales — there are so many great businesses, like Airbus, right on our doorstep that could benefit from having innovative technologies like 3D printing locally. And with Deeside being made an Enterprise Zone there are great opportunities to do more, it’s really positive. This award is amazing, a real honour.”

3D printing technology is relatively new and in the 20+ years since it was first commercialised as a prototyping method the developments have been tremendous. It now presents product development, engineering and manufacturing companies in many different industry sectors with an alternative production method for parts and components, as well as speeding up the development process itself. With a wealth of 3D printing technology expertise and experience, At 3D-Squared offers a full strategic consultancy service as well as a direct maintenance & support service for companies with 3D printing machines in-situ. Clients of At 3D-Squared include Formula 1 teams, aerospace companies, auto makers, jewellers and R&D facilities amongst many others.

At 3D-Squared is also the company behind the development of the Metalise it … process. This unique process enables plastic models — often 3D printed — to be plated with a range of different metal finishes and is now offered to clients via At 3D-Squared’s sister company 3DDC Limted.
