California prototyping and manufacturing company Plethora on Wednesday announced it would open a second facility next month.
The company said it invested $17 million in a plant in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta after maximizing production capacity at its current factory in San Francisco.
The expansion is expected to create 250 new jobs in Georgia, and Plethora said it is working with local colleges and universities — including Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State University and Lanier Technical College — to staff the facility.
“By growing our in-house capacity, we’ll continue to drive the industry standard when it comes to on-demand, quality parts and prototypes,” President and CEO Jim Quinn said in a statement.
Plethora says it provides end-to-end manufacturing services, particularly for low-volume parts and quick turnaround times. It offers a design platform and automated design software, as well as CNC milling and turning in more than 30 materials.
On its website, the company says it hopes to build a future “where engineers are able to make better designs and produce them effortlessly.”
