Dan King Receives SME 30 Under 30

Fabrisonic is excited to announce that our own Dan King has been featured on the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME)’s “30 Under 30” list!

Dan King

In 30 under 30, SME Media recognizes 30 individuals under the age of 30 that are leading the manufacturing industry into the future. These young trailblazers exemplify extraordinary promise in manufacturing and the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills that underpin the discipline, plus much more.

On the list this year is Dan King, whose day job includes building Fabrisonic’s patented 3D metal printers as well as educating our customers on design for additive manufacturing. Dan says he’s thrilled to be working at Fabrisonic because the small startup atmosphere allows him to take on more responsibility than his peers at larger companies.

Dan is among many young pioneers whom SME believes have the potential to be leaders in manufacturing. The team at Fabrisonic could not agree more! 

“The people honored here are making big contributions not only to the manufacturing industry but also groups that rely on volunteers,” the magazine reads. “They are advancing manufacturing through research. They are helping startups thrive. They are saving companies money and inventing new technology. They are reaching other engineers-in-training.”
