- Australian and ASX-Listed titanium powder producer and advanced manufacturer to establish manufacturing, R&D and global corporate headquarters in Southeast Tennessee
- Project to create more than 100 jobs in Cleveland
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter and Amaero International Limited (ASX:3DA) officials announced today the company will invest $54.9 million to establish its first U.S. facility in Tennessee.
Through the project, the titanium alloy manufacturer will locate its flagship advanced manufacturing, research and development (R&D) and global headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, creating 105 new jobs in Bradley County.
Once complete, the 130,000-square-foot facility at Spring Branch Industrial Park will serve as Amaero’s corporate hub for its titanium alloy powder production, advanced manufacturing and R&D sector. Amaero’s customers include aerospace and defense prime contractors, as well as medical and industrial companies.
Amaero International Limited was founded in 2013, in Victoria, Australia, and has closely collaborated with premier institutions, including Monash University, Monash Centre Additive Manufacturing (MCAM) and Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO. The company’s commercialization efforts have focused on metal 3D printing of complex components for the aerospace and defense, space, medical and other industrial businesses.
Since 2019, TNECD has supported nearly 50 economic development projects in the Southeast Tennessee region, resulting in approximately 7,900 job commitments and $3.3 billion in capital investment.
