"Our future success depends primarily on our ability to attract, train, retain and develop the right people within our organization," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that 3D Systems offers a very unique employment value proposition. We are creating an open, friendly and inviting work environment within our state-of-the-art headquarters facility that is being constructed at the Waterford Industrial Park. Most importantly, we offer prospective employees the opportunity to join a company that is founded and grounded on a strong customer centric culture, clear priorities, sensible guiding principles and ethical values."
3D Systems is part of a very young, high-tech industry, still in its infancy with unlimited possibilities. The company emerged as a leading technology innovator and provider of differentiated design development and manufacturing solutions for a wide variety of industrial consumer and medical applications. 3D Systems is a global company with operations in the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The company designs, develops, manufactures, markets and services rapid 3-D printing, prototyping and manufacturing systems and related products and materials that enable complex, three-dimensional objects to be produced directly from computer data. Its proprietary systems are used to produce physical objects from digital data using commonly available computer-aided design software, often referred to as CAD software. The company's systems' ability to produce physical parts from digital art enables its customers to create detailed prototypes or production-quality parts quickly and effectively without a significant investment in expensive tooling, greatly reducing the time and cost required to produce prototypes or to customize production parts.
"3D Systems is the kind of forward-looking company every community wants. We are extremely pleased that 3D Systems is relocating to Rock Hill and is building its new headquarters in Waterford Business Park. The career fair is a wonderful opportunity for those with 21st century skills to learn about the kinds of high-tech positions available at 3D Systems," said Dennis Merrell, president of York Technical College.
3D Systems previously announced it had chosen Rock Hill as the site of its new global headquarters based on the proximity to customers and suppliers and the favorable business climate, significant investment and tax benefits, opportunity to attract and retain top talent and the sustained lower cost of doing business that South Carolina provides. The 80,000 square foot state-of-the-art building will bring together into one facility the company's corporate headquarters, principal R&D activities and all key support functions. In January, the company announced that it has opened a 12,000 square foot interim facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina, to serve as its initial base of operation.
"Because we know that we derive significant competitive advantage from our ability to attract, cultivate and nurture a capable team of energized, diverse and talented individuals committed to doing their jobs a little better every day, we are dedicated to building, over time, a strong talent bench of long-distance runners within the organization. We strive to build a team of leaders that will provide the foundation and fuel for accelerated and sustained growth and the enthusiasm and willingness to come back for more," continued Reichental.
