Andrew Jeffery is a 3D printing industry veteran, pioneer and experienced entrepreneur, and was one of the first licensees of MIT’s Three Dimensional Printing Process (3DP) in 1995 and has cofounded four companies based on this technology. From his first venture it has been his objective to make 3D printing a production process that competes with conventional manufacturing.

His latest venture is as co-founder and Head of Sustainability at Marvel Labs. They are committed to making high-volume biomass 3D printing affordable, reliable, and sustainable. Marvel Labs uses the speed, precision and quality of binder jetting AM technology to produce functional parts from biomass waste streams such as seaweed, sawdust, coffee grounds and lignin. The mission is to develop responsible material value chains that are critical to achieving net-zero carbon emissions and building a sustainable future.

Previously, he was CEO of Forust, a company that specialized in the 3D printing of waste sawdust which was the start of his journey in sustainability to make products from biomass. Forust made consumer and architectural products for interiors, homes and commercial spaces and was acquired by Desktop Metal in 2020. Prior to Forust in 2011, he co-founded and was President and CEO of Figulo Corporation, a company that manufactured ceramic products using 3D printing that offered personalized production of glazed ceramics to customers worldwide. Figulo was acquired by 3D Systems in 2013 where he became Director of Ceramic Products. Earlier in his career, he co-founded Specific Surface Corporation, an award winning company that pioneered 3d printing technology for making industrial ceramic filters in the 1990s.

He is a member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and an allied member of the American Institute of Architects.
