WATERTOWN, Massachusetts – December 14, 2022 – Markforged (NYSE: MKFG), the company strengthening manufacturing resiliency by enabling industrial production at the point of need, today announced that the Markforged materials manufacturing facility located in Billerica, MA is International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 certified with TUV Rheinland of North America after meeting rigorous quality management and quality assurance standards.

This recent certification, along with the company’s existing ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for information security management, highlights Markforged’s ability to support enterprises of all sizes.
“Achieving this latest certification is a true reflection of the great manufacturing culture that has been nurtured at our Billerica facility and the overall commitment to quality and reliability that runs deep in our company’s DNA," said Scott Kaempfe, Markforged’s Senior Director, Manufacturing. "We are committed to building a world-class, scalable production facility that will deliver high-value and reliable performance for our customers now and in the future.”
