Geomagic, the Morrisville firm which was purchased by Rock Hill, S.C.-based 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) last year, is moving to Cary in June.
Spokesperson Rachael Dalton-Taggart confirmed the move on Tuesday, telling me the lease at the current property is running out.
“We’re going to have a new showroom, a new training space, it will be great,” she says.
The firm, currently at Davis Drive in Morrisville, will be moving into the Weston 1 Building in Cary. Locally, the company employs about 60 people, she says.
Geomagic was founded by Ping Fu in the late 1990s. The company had been working with printer developer 3D Systems for some time to adopt what it calls “3D content-to-print solutions” and was finally acquired by the firm last year.
Geomagic acts as the software end of the firm, developing 3-D programs. Final products have various applications, including medical applications such as “printed” false teeth.
