Keene Village Plastics

Manufacturer of high quality plastic welding rods and 3D printing filaments.  With over 20 different materials currently available, more in development, and the ability to extrude materials that you provide, no one has the capacity, capability, quality or expertise that Keene Village Plastics has in the industry.  For 3D filaments, 1.75MM and 3MM (2.85mm) are available.

Profile Description

Back in 2004, Village Plastics was one of the few companies producing 3D printing filament, and were known as an industry leader. At that time, many desktop 3D printer companies obtained their filament from Village Plastics, relabeling it as their own. Village Plastics provided filaments for most of the large consumer hobbiest printers, as well as several companies just getting started at the time.

In December of 2013 3D systems acquired Village Plastics in order to leverage Village Plastics manufacturing capacities and quality programs with their vision of the consumer 3D printing markets. In late 2016, 3D Systems announced they were exiting the consumer market space, and no longer producing their Cube line of printers.

In 2017, Village Plastics was acquired by Keene Building Products, which sought to refocus the company as an independent supplier of 3D printer filament. The buyer, Keene Family of Companies, also of Ohio, produces plastic products for the construction industry, and feels there are significant synergies with Village Plastics.

Today the company is looking to re-establish themselves as the materials and quality leader in the 3D printing and Thermoplastic welding rod markets.
