Fortify was created to break the cycle of long lead times and inferior materials in traditional manufacturing. The company was founded on research on composite 3D printing by Randall Erb and Joshua Martin at Northeastern University. Their goal was twofold: 1) to optimize the microstructure of composite materials, and 2) to make optimized composites easy to fabricate. Through their research, they invented magnetic 3D printing.
They established Fortify to bring optimized composites to engineers across the globe. Today, Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) has found success in tooling, aerospace, and automotive applications. Now, Fortify is a leader in optimized composites. DCM has transformed the DNA of materials, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in engineering.
Fluxprint makes high-performance materials accessible. It’s a patented magnetic 3D printing process that creates optimized composites. It combines magnetics and digital light processing (DLP) 3D printing to produce composite parts with ideal mechanical properties. As a part is additively manufactured, fibers are magnetically aligned voxel by voxel to optimize the microstructure. High-performance components are created significantly faster and at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional manufacturing. With Fluxprint, engineering teams achieve ideal mechanics and bring quality products to market faster.
At Fortify, we apply our expertise across disciplines to create products that challenge the status quo. Our culture is inclusive and collaborative. We are a growing team of engineers and business leaders with years of experience in innovation. Together, we develop groundbreaking technology, redefining what’s possible in manufacturing.
We work together to develop groundbreaking products, and we have fun doing it. Our workspace is decked out with sitting-to-standing desks, a kitchen stocked with snacks, a ping-pong table, rock climbing holds, and a big screen for movies and video games (and the occasional meeting). Outside of the office, you can find us at the climbing gym down the street or on the ski slopes near Boston.
All teammates have excellent resources on hand. Engineers have access to a full lab, machine shop, and characterization facilities. We’re committed to professional development, providing employees with courses, books, and any other resources they need to reach their goals. Our culture is designed to help each person succeed now and in the long run.
We invest in books, courses, and software for employees to develop their skills, and we leverage our network to find them the best mentorship possible.
Our kitchen is filled with healthy (and not-so-healthy) treats. Whatever the beverage of choice—tea, coffee, Soylent—it’s on hand to keep the Fortify team energized.
Yoga, surfing, biking, skiing—our team loves to stay active. Fortify employees get a discount on the nearby rock climbing gym, and we have holds in the office to practice.
Boston has a terrific bar and restaurant scene. After work, you can often find the Fortify team at one of Boston’s bars to watch a sports game or just hang out.
