The Neighborhood Concept

Neighbors borrow tools from each other all the time. That sharing of resources is at the core of Neighborhood 91’s purpose.

Pittsburgh’s 91st Neighborhood

Pittsburgh has 90 unique neighborhoods – each with its own identity, culture and artistic flare. And while all are distinct in their own local way, Neighborhood 91 will be a global game-changer.

  • Arencibia: onsite production of noble gases, including new and recycled Argon—often 60% of AM/3D costs
  • Onsite powder facility
  • Parts producers
  • Post-production finishers
  • QA/Testing facilities

 

A future workforce is coming.From blue collar to new collar.

Neighborhood 91 is like any close-knit community. Except we’re a collection of like-minded 3D printing supply chain businesses coming together in one centrally based ecosystem to create enormous efficiencies in the Additive Manufacturing sector.

With neighbors like the University of Pittsburgh, whose dual strengths in piloting programs to augment and fill the AM/3D professional pipeline as well as applied AM and supply chain research, we’ll complete the continuum that is the neighborhood by supplying it with people with skills, education, training and know-how who will advance and apply that next generation research all in this one AM production ecosystem.

Neighborhood 91 is at the additive manufacturing world’s epicenter.


Leadership
