A KEIGHLEY entrepreneur is seeking to capitalise on a boom in demand for three-dimensional printing.

Harry Bairstow, 24, has set-up a 3D filament manufacturing company.

And he is targeting turnover of more than £100,000 in his first full year of trading.

Operating as Fetera, the firm is producing filament in a range of colours from premises at Halifax Road, Cross Roads.

Interest in 3D printing has grown as technological advances have made printers more affordable, both for research and development purposes and for hobbyists keen to explore the art at home.

Harry launched Fetera after encountering difficulties sourcing high-quality filament – and discovering that most of it was imported from China and the Netherlands.

He said: “Increased investment in research and development is encouraging innovation and driving demand among the 3D printing community.

“We have spent two years perfecting our material and quality is our focus – our filament is competitively priced to ensure clog-free printing every time and it is manufactured here in the UK.”
