3D Hubs Places Eighth in Deloitte Technology Fast 50
Written by Simon Gray
We are excited to announce that 3D Hubs has been ranked as one of the fastest-growing and most innovative start-ups in the Netherlands by Deloitte Technology Fast 50. We are honored to have placed in this year’s top list, which recognizes some truly inspiring companies, including MessageBird, Scribbr and Sendcloud.
We’re very proud of our brilliant team of engineers who keep refining our AI-powered platform and extending our capabilities. While we have a clear vision for revolutionizing the manufacturing industry, we often think about 3D Hubs as being a go-to solution that empowers other engineers to disrupt their respective industries, so it’s a real pleasure to find our own in-house ingenuity in the spotlight.
The Deloitte Fast 50 technology award
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards began in 1995, ranking companies that have demonstrated ambition, creative execution and forward-thinking business strategy. It is an elite subset of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Awards that’s allotted to rapidly growing companies at a regional or country-level around the world. It is one of the most well-respected awards a tech company can win. Our spot in the top 10 shows that we’re making a difference, and that’s an encouraging sign as we work towards our goal of creating a fully distributed global supply chain for on-demand manufacturing.
3D Hubs’ 2019 ranking
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards evaluates revenue so our 1258% growth between 2015 and 2018 puts us in the top tier, and with our current momentum, we are pacing to rank even higher next year. But innovation is another key criterion and we have been able to continually drive our platform forward thanks to our hard-working team who has tirelessly pursued new solutions to streamline online manufacturing.
"The key to our growth is our fantastic team,” says 3D Hubs’ CEO Bram de Zwart. “We have a product that naturally attracts great talent, with more than 100 people from 35 different countries working passionately to turn 3D Hubs into the world's leading online platform for manufacturing."
It is an exciting time to be the technology and manufacturing space. We’re helping engineers bring their ideas to life as they develop new products that genuinely change the way their industries operate. And there are lots of companies who want to move from concept to end product even faster and more efficiently. This Deloitte ranking affirms that we’re growing alongside the demand for a better approach to manufacturing. The dialogue between our clients and engineers is elevating our company, our platform and the global model for manufacturing to new heights.
