3D LifePrints Gains Funding to Support Global Expansion

U.K.-based 3D LifePrints completed a successful investment round of £1.2 million (~USD $1.4 million). Funds will support the company's presence and growth in domestic and international markets. This latest round follows earlier investments of nearly £0.7 million.

3D LifePrints offers 3D printed medical device prototypes and embedded biomedical engineers and services to the NHS and other organizations. Orthopedic tools include anatomical models for procedure planning, surgical cutting guides, instruments and titanium implants for craniomaxillofacial surgery, though the company serves other medical specialties, as well.

The company presently provides these services from embedded 3D printing facilities/hubs at three U.K. hospitals. It seeks to expand to 50 hubs by 2024, including the U.S. and throughout Europe.

Paul Fotheringham, Founder and CTO, said, “We are extremely pleased to announce the completion of this funding round with investment from Fenwall Investments and a number of individual investors, and will continue to develop our unique business model of providing embedded 3D medical printing services in order to drive down operational costs, provide innovative 3D technology-based products and services, and ultimately improve patient care."
