Patent Issued for on Demand Digital Manufacturing Platform + Continued Growth Earns Inc. 5000 Ranking for Seven Years

Oakland, California—August 15, 2019—FATHOM, an advanced manufacturer with an expertise in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, today announced the issuance of a United States Patent for the systems and methods powering its online digital manufacturing platform. The team also received its seventh consecutive ranking on the Inc 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America—only 1.5% of businesses have made this list seven times.

“These exciting milestones for FATHOM further highlight our continued commitment to solutions that transform how products are designed, prototyped, and manufactured,” said Michelle Mihevc, Co-Founder and Principal at FATHOM. “Evolving at a fast pace in meaningful ways is how FATHOM maintains its unique position in the marketplace. The core of everything we do is about offering prototyping and production services that help companies drive greater innovation while also accelerating project timelines.”

The patent relates to FATHOM’s internal and external platforms used to create price quotes for 3D objects with checkout option, including selection of units, materials, finish, and quantity of additively manufactured parts to be made.

FATHOM’s proven ecosystem of dynamic advanced manufacturing solutions has earned award-winning recognition year after year. The team has also been recognized on the Inner City 100 list by ICIC as published in Fortune Magazine and the San Francisco Business Times’ Fast 100 list of fastest-growing private companies in the Bay Area.

“FATHOM’s culture, expertise, technologies, capabilities, quality, and customer service is driven by our strategic focus on our customers’ need for a complete experience from a brand they can trust and rely on to achieve impactful results,” said Rich Stump, Co-Founder and Principal at FATHOM. “We’re grateful for this recognition and excited about what the future holds for FATHOM.”

FATHOM got its award-winning start selling and supporting enterprise-level 3D printing and additive manufacturing systems in 2008. Co-founders Stump and Mihevc then opened a full-service additive manufacturing facility in 2012. FATHOM’s Seattle-based production center opened the following year. Today, FATHOM’s team of experts specialize in additive and traditional manufacturing services (CNC machining, urethane casting, tooling, and injection molding), plus hybrid processes (blending additive with subtractive and formative methods to achieve results not previously possible). The company also offers industry-leading mechanical engineering and industrial design support, as well as on-site managed equipment services.

FATHOM is ISO 9001:2015 certified, ITAR registered, and DFARS compliant. For more information about FATHOM, view our frequently asked questions. For a copy of this press release as a PDF, click thru to view and download.
