PHOENIX – A relocation to a new facility in metro Phoenix will allow a British-based manufacturer to grow and create jobs later this year.

Avondale officials announced Monday that Photocentric, Inc., is moving its U.S. headquarters from Phoenix to the West Valley city and will open for business sometime in the fall.

At 50,000 square feet, the site near 107th Avenue and Interstate 10 will be twice as large as Photocentric’s current base of operations.

The company, founded in 2002, produces 3D-printing materials, among other things, and plans for the site to handle manufacturing and distribution for all of the United States.

“Avondale continues to attract manufacturing that is leading the way in innovation,” Mayor Kenn Weise said in a press release.

“We have a skilled labor force ready to get to work, and we are excited for the quality jobs that Photocentric will provide for the community.”

Photocentric also recently announced expansion at its Peterborough, England, international headquarters.
