Xometry, a leading on-demand manufacturing platform, announced $15MM in funding led by BMW i Ventures, with participation from existing investors including GE Ventures and Highland Capital Partners. Further fueling Xometry’s market expansion, the latest round of funding will accelerate Xometry’s investment in its machine learning-based software platform, manufacturing partner network, and sales organization.
“We’re thrilled to partner with BMW i Ventures and deepen our relationship with General Electric,” said Randy Altschuler, co-founder and CEO of Xometry. “We’re accelerating our efforts to provide additional features to our online platform, making it easier for engineers and procurement managers to conveniently order a range of parts delivered by our expanding network of hundreds of manufacturers across the nation.”
Xometry has now raised a total to date of $38MM.
Xometry has continued its rapid market expansion, recently eclipsing 5,000 customers spanning multiple verticals, including aerospace, automotive, consumer, medical devices and industrials. This year, Xometry has tripled its 2016 bookings during the same time-period a year ago. Xometry has correspondingly expanded its manufacturing capacity by more than five times since the end of last year.
Leading global manufacturers, such as GE, BMW and others, are leveraging Xometry’s platform to simplify the purchase of custom manufactured parts and to enable efficient price transparency in their procurement practices.
Commensurate with the expanded relationship, BMW i Venture’s Partner, Zach Barasz, is joining Xometry’s Board of Directors.
“Xometry is well-positioned to continue its rapid growth based on the strength of its software platform, extensive manufacturing network and seasoned management team,” said Barasz. “They quickly deliver quality custom parts to businesses of all sizes, including BMW.”
“We’re thrilled to continue to expand our relationship with Xometry. Its easy-to-use interface is being deployed across GE business units to deliver high quality parts to a number of industries,” said Ralph Taylor-Smith, Managing Director of Advanced Manufacturing, of GE Ventures.
