Transforming manufacturing, together
Our mission is to create a revolution about how things are made. We want to build a world where all the items you use every day are produced locally and sustainably.
By 3D-printing all the items locally we are enabling a more fair, sustainable and robust world of manufacturing, only producing things when and where they areneeded.
The concept of Vulkaza was born during the first corona crisis. As Norway was running out of essential protection equipment and borders were closed, Ap, Vulkaza CEO, has tapped into the 3D-printing community to make reusable face shields.
The idea was ingenious. Connect Norway's community of makers with 3D printers to print the head holders for shields made from commercially available office supplies.
We delivered over 30 000 reusable face shields to the largest hospitals, the police, and almost every nursing home in Norway.We even got emergency approval from the Norwegian Army to use these face shields in international operations. Even though regular protection equipment is available today, these face shields are still in operation due to their excellent quality.
Ap has joined Antler, an early-stage VC acceleration program, to find co-founders and take his vision of distributed manufacturing powered by thousands of makers to the next level.
Here Ap met Odeta and Øyvind and together we are building a 3D print-on-demand service powered by an automated software solution that connects customers, creators and makers globally.
After building the required infrastructure to deliver products on-demand and locally, Vulkaza is now launching a brand new shopping experience.
Working together with Creators from all over the world we have built this platform that makes it easy for Creators to upload their design and bring it to you, sustainably.
