Founded on Experience
While working at Honda of America Manufacturing, Catalysis founders Darrell Stafford and Rick Shibko witnessed how much focus was on the reduction of product development schedules. The result was a negative impact on the reduction of tooling lead times, subsequently resulting in higher prototype tooling costs. With more new products being introduced all the time and the increasing frequency of model changes, the prototype tooling costs and lead times became a challenge to reduce.
Catalysis Additive Tooling was founded by utilizing the collective 60+ years of automotive engineering, tooling, and new model development experience of Stafford and Shibko. That experience combined with their 10+ years of Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing research allows us to offer our customers a complete solution to support their Development and Production needs.
