MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions of Mundelein, IL, announced the opening of the MacLean Additive facility in Sterling Heights, MI. This new facility will specialize in 3D printed components and tooling, as well as the distribution of MacLean Additive’s award-winning “Formetrix L-40” steel powder for tooling applications.

Greg Rizzo, Vice President and General Manager for MacLean Additive said, “With the addition last year of the Formetrix portfolio to our existing additive manufacturing activities, we quickly outgrew our initial MacLean Additive space in Macomb, MI. This facility gives us the room we need to develop our durable tooling product lines, support our ever-growing steel powder customer base, as well as continue our 3D printed production part activities.”

The MacLean Additive facility in Sterling Heights held a Grand Opening ceremony on July 6, 2022, at 2 p.m. MacLean-Fogg President and CEO, MacLean, cut the ribbon on the new facility in front of local dignitaries and invited guests.

“Our Grand Opening guests will see that we have a lot of room to grow in this 35,000 square foot facility. We didn’t choose this facility because it was the only one available, we chose this facility because we know we’ll have the demand to fill it.”

– Duncan MacLean, President and CEO, MacLean-Fogg

Talking about the facility and the new developments undertaken by MacLean-Fogg, Sterling Heights’ Mayor Michael Taylor said, “MacLean-Fogg had a choice of where to locate this new additive manufacturing facility, and they chose Sterling Heights. Their decision to locate in our community underscores the solid reputation we have for welcoming our business community and really engaging with them to ensure their success. The Sterling Innovation District is strategically located at the heart of customer demand and access to the specialized engineering and technician talent needed to fill that demand. That makes it a perfect fit for cutting-edge manufacturing facilities like MacLean Additve facility.”
