The mission of Bantam Tools is to create an ecosystem of tools and gather a community of people who are passionate about making their ideas a reality. Our products are the premier solution for engineers and designers who want to quickly manufacture prototypes, parts, and products in standard materials like aluminum and performance plastics. We make it possible for people to fabricate on their desktop, without extensive training, for a fraction of the cost and time of outsourcing.
We believe that the future of manufacturing is small-batch, ultra-customized, and on-demand. When we think about the future, we see manufacturing in a fully distributed model with large and small companies creating custom products locally and on demand. Our products put high-precision manufacturing capabilities in the hands of a wide range of people, some for the very first time. We enable our users, saving them time and money and opening doors for them in terms of employment mobility and pathways to modern technical relevance through hands-on education. If this mission resonates with you, reach out and join our team.
