First Viable 3D Home Printer Receives SEC Clearance
Apis Cor, the 3-D printed home producer, has received Regulation A+ qualification from the Securities and Exchange Commission to begin offering shares to accredited and non-accredited investors.
The Melbourne, Fla.-based company has developed a wide range of advanced technologies and materials for the 3D-printed home industry. The manufacturer’s financial backers currently include Alchemist Accelerator and At One Ventures – a funder of companies that contribute positively to nature.
As the first company to develop specialized equipment capable of printing whole buildings completely on-site, Apis Cor originally made international news when it secured the Guinness World Record in Dubai for the largest 3D printed building on Earth.
The company has since gone on to refine that technology for practical construction applications and tested it on several pilot projects in the USA, Apis Cor said.
"We are so pleased to reach this milestone in our journey to revolutionize the construction industry," said Anna Cheniuntai, CEO and co-founder of Apis Cor. "We have dedicated a lot of time and effort to not only developing this tech but also to provide people with the opportunity to join us in reimaging how construction works.”
According to Apis Cor, the company offers a variety of products and services related to the 3D-printed building industry, including:
- Equipment: 3D-printing robotic equipment and hardware available for leasing to construction companies.
- Completed Homes: Fully finished 3D-printed homes available within the United States. The company is currently taking reservations with construction to begin in 2023.
- Apis Cor University: Online courses centered on emerging technology along with in-house seminars and training workshops developed to help engineers and construction workers get familiar with the equipment and learn the process of 3D-printing a structure.
"We are passionate about developing more technologies and solutions to expedite the entire construction process – just like Henry Ford did by automating the car manufacturing business," Cheniuntai said. "We've been refining the process, fighting to reclaim seconds, then minutes from the overall construction time – leading to increasing gains. We're working to shave months and years from typical construction times to help people who are most at-need for housing – people who can't afford to wait."
