With an understanding that each project is UNIQUE, we aim to provide first class, personalized customer service, and competitive pricing with the intent to build long term, lasting relationships. Joining proven methods of 3D printing with over 60 combined years of experience, we strive to impress on every project regarding timing, quality, customer service, and attention to detail.
APS was born in the spring of 1995 when 3 entrepreneurs recognized the potential of an emerging technology called Stereolithography. Pooling their resources, they purchased one of the first available 3D Systems SLA-250 machines and opened operations in the basement of a local sandwich shop. Two years later they had outgrown their location and moved operations to a 4000 square foot facility, adding two SLA 500 machines and injection molding capabilities. In 2014 another move was required to accommodate 4 more molding machines and additional rapid prototyping equipment.
