Evolve Additive Solutions will expand its operations in Brighton, New York. The expansion at Evolve’s Metro Park location will allow the company to create almost 60 jobs in the region over the next five years. Evolve, which is headquartered in Minnesota, operates its materials technology center in Brighton. The 15-person office is headed up by Kodak veteran Rich Allen, who outlined the benefits of growing the company’s high-tech operation locally, including the highly skilled talent pool that is readily available in the Finger Lakes region.

Evolve is focusing on its additive manufacturing technology known as Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP) on products in the automotive, aerospace, medical and industrial markets. Initially, the company plans to expand the manufacturing space at the Brighton facility by 7,000 square-feet with plans to add on another 13,000 square-feet over in the coming years.
