Going forward, WhiteClouds will focus on developing business-to-business sales and strategic partnerships. The company will continue to expand its focus on four key industries: architecture, medical, prototyping and entertainment. In addition to its full-color services, the company also provides services for prototyping and end-use parts in a variety of materials.
To support its growth and expanded production capabilities, WhiteClouds hired a new COO, Joey Skinner, to oversee production and develop processes that make the company as efficient as possible. "A major part of our offering is the capacity to deliver," said Skinner. "We are the largest full-color 3D print services provider in the world. With this new building, we have the capacity to hold that prestigious title and to continue to grow that capacity in the future."
Braden Ellis, CRO, also joined the team to manage partnerships and strategic alliances to create future growth and revenues.

"Nearly every industry can benefit from this technology and we are here to make that possible in a way that is cost effective and easy to implement."
