It was great to see U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen at the Madco3d Rochester, NH facility today, accompanied by SBA Administrator Isabel Guzman, Rochester Mayor Paul Callaghan, Rochester Economic Director Mike Scala, along with state and regional media.
The focus was the impact Madco3d can have on the New Hampshire and national housing crisis, ocean health (relating to coral reef replacement), various forms of innovation in tech and material science, even biosynthesis of coral. Our friend Dr. John Roth of the UNH Olson Center for Advanced Manufacturing and intern Conner Bernard provided support during the live print of a 3d-printed Sika concrete wall incorporating electrical conduit and receptacles.
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (r) speaks with Madco3d founding partner Dan Bernard (center) and SBA Administrator Isabel Guzman in the Madco3d space.
The dignitaries and media toured the Madco3d hybridhouse™ house model, had questions regarding our methods, goals and how federal agencies can help companies like ours grow and serve larger markets, including exporting our tech and products around the world, and discussions regarding Madco3d printing local neighborhoods.
Finally, touring the Madco3d coral and art gallery, learning about its sand deposition 3d printing machines and long-term plans for use of our tech, the Senator, Administrator and local stakeholders and construction partners of our company (GSD Inc.) bid farewell, their entourage, security detail and other guests not far behind on a day that began with frigid New Hampshire winter temperatures outdoors but ended with warmth, great plans and conversations and new connections and ideas.
