Alloy Enterprises was founded in early 2020 by three startup veterans who recognized a supply chain problem and saw an opportunity that matched their unparalleled expertise. Within a year of invention, the company was making parts using their novel additive manufacturing system that provides high throughput of fully-dense aluminum parts, enabling manufacturers to scale from prototyping to production.
