The company is focussed on sustainable production, using up to 90 per cent recycled thermoplastics and 100 per cent recyclable paper-based packaging. It plans to recycle 100 per cent of its waste thermoplastic material by the end of 2019.

Founded in April 2018, Lancashire3D will use the new plant to expand its market presence and accelerate Research and Development and production capacity.

Lancashire3D co-founder Steven Pearson said: “We bring more than 10 years technology, design and industry experience and are committed to developing truly innovative ways to marry the art and science of 3D printing, while delivering on our vision to work with recyclable materials.

“Lancashire3D Ltd has grown to be the largest 3D printing studio in the north of England, and our new Lancashire based plant will allow us to handle a greater range of engineering materials and support our continued expansion.

“We are also delighted to be able to welcome clients to visit us and share their projects and requirements with us in person at our new studio and plant.”
