A consulting firm says a new additive manufacturing complex planned for Pittsburgh will create nearly 6,000 jobs and generate nearly $2.2 billion in wages by 2030.

Neighborhood 91 will be built on a 195-acre site adjacent to the Pittsburgh International Airport, and is being called the first-ever global epicenter for additive manufacturing process. It is being built with input from the University of Pittsburgh.

Also consulting on the project, the Pittsburgh-based Barnes Group Advisors says that Neighborhood 91 will concentrate what has been a fragmented supply chain for additive manufacturing into one focused development.

A cluster does two key things,(…), It enables process owners to focus on developing and optimizing their core process, and it creates a skilled regional labor pool.”

The project will consolidate supply — even with a dedicated microgrid for energy supply from natural gas sourced on site. The airport in western Pennsylvania is about an hour’s drive from the Youngstown, Ohio-based America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute. Neighborhood 91 takes its name from Pittsburgh’s 90 distinct neighborhoods, saying it will be the 91st.
