FATHOM Announces Facility Expansion in Oakland

FATHOM, an industry-leading hybridized manufacturer with an expertise in 3D printing, has broken ground on its largest expansion to date. While many futurists have over-speculated the factory of the future, FATHOM has been busy building one.

“Our customers’ needs for design freedom and faster speeds are the base of everything we do—FATHOM’s newly expanded Oakland production space is a direct result of the growing need for hybridized manufacturing-based services,” said Michelle Mihevc, FATHOM Co-Founder and Principal. “It’s gratifying to help people create products that were previously unmakeable, and we’re lucky to do that every day with innovative companies, large and small.”

Rich Stump and Mihevc started FATHOM in 2008, during a time when the manufacturing industry at large was ready for change. Despite the economic challenges of the time, Stump and Mihevc set out to change the way products are designed and manufactured by blending foundational manufacturing technologies with 3D printing and additive-based fabrication.

“FATHOM’s hybridized manufacturing approach combines the best aspects of additive and traditional manufacturing technologies,” said Stump, FATHOM Co-Founder and Principal. “Advanced prototyping, low-volume manufacturing—modern production that harnesses the latest techniques while leveraging proven methods of fabrication to create innovative products at top speed.”

FATHOM is braving the unknowns and challenging industry hype. The company’s team of experts are condensing the product development timeline, reducing total cost of project ownership, and helping companies bring paradigm-shifting products to market faster.

“2016 has been a banner year for FATHOM, and we’re thankful to Oakland and the greater Bay Area community that has continued to support us,” said Stump. “This expansion represents our commitment to hybridized manufacturing as essential to product creation. We’re not waiting for ‘the factory of the future.’ We’re making it happen, right here in Oakland.”

FATHOM’s newly expanded Oakland production center will be occupied and fully operational by the end of 2016.
