Noblesville, Indiana - Midwest rapid prototyper Realize Inc. has expanded its urethane casting business by hiring new employees and adding a second shift to production.
The company, based near Indianapolis, creates custom rapid prototypes of products for clients in numerous industries. It says that stereolithography has always been a large part of the business, but the recent hiring has enabled the company to expand its capacity for rubber moulding (RTV) projects.
"The talent we've brought in this year brings with them years of relevant experience with ties to industries including dentistry, rapid prototyping services, toy and hobby, gaming and architectural modelling," said Todd Reese, president, in a company statement.
Sean Waters, project success manager, handles scheduling and serves as a liaison between the RTV department and project managers. Realise has also added two senior model makers, Steven Melendez, who has a knack for making models out of just about any material, and David Strait, who brings many years of industry experience.
Realize has also added a second shift to its production, increasing the efficiency of its machinery and putting the Midwest company in a better position to increase throughput.
Other new employees include office manager Kim Thompson, finishing technicians Charlie Guernsey and Shane Cooper, marketing assistant Dawn Cazzell and accounting assistant Tami Tomey.
Founded in 1999, Realize is respected as a premier rapid prototyping company and is one of the largest service providers in the Midwest. Services include stereolithography, RTV moulding and cast urethane models, as well as industrial design, computer aided design, and custom finishing and painting.
