Youngstown Business Incubator Adds
Additive Manufacturing Building

Tuesday, December 19, 2017
The Youngtown Business Incubator (YBI) held a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this month to celebrate the opening of Tech Block Building 5 (TBB5), the fifth building on their campus in downtown Youngstown, Ohio. The $5.7-million, 65,000-sq.-ft. renovated building is the former home of The Vindicator newspaper. It will provide space for early stage companies in the additive manufacturing industry and house industrial equipment for research and part production.

YBI started offering entrepreneurial support for early stage additive manufacturing companies shortly after America Makes opened on their campus in 2012. Over the last few years, YBI has added approximately 10 additive manufacturing portfolio companies, and with continued growth expected, acquiring additional space was a priority.

TBB5 will house four of YBI’s additive manufacturing portfolio companies: Strangpresse, AST2, Juggerbot 3D and 3D PrinterWorks. It will also serve as the first beta site in the United States for the Carmel 1400 additive manufacturing system from Israel-based XJet Ltd. The system features patented NanoParticle Jetting technology for the production of metal or ceramic parts through inkjet printing.
