"The team is excited to be named a Champion of Manufacturing by CMTA,” said Rich Stump, Principal at FATHOM. "It’s an honor to have a spotlight on FATHOM’s 3D printing expertise which allows us to combine additive manufacturing with more traditional manufacturing methods to help our customers get new products to market faster and more efficiently. By utilizing additive manufacturing technologies, along with traditional manufacturing processes, we now have the ability to solve high value design problems that could never have been accomplished with only traditional methods."

Stump and his partner Michelle Mihevc founded FATHOM in 2008. The company ranked NO. 369 last year on the 32nd Annual Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the United States and NO. 39 on SF Business Times' list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area.
