30th Anniversary for PADT Marks Significant Milestone for the Arizona-Based Engineering Products and Services Company

By: PRLog

30 Years of Making Innovation Work Through Technical Expertise and Outstanding Customer Services for Simulation, 3D Printing, and Product Development

TEMPE, Ariz. - March 19, 2024 - PRLog -- PADT, a globally recognized provider of numerical simulation, product development, and 3D printing products and services, announced its 30th year in business in March 2024. The company was started back in 1994 by four engineers who had a vision of taking advanced computer aided engineering capabilities that were only being used in aerospace and making them available to other industries. Now, the three original founders, Rey Chu, Eric Miller, and Ward Rand, are overseeing a 95-person company headquartered in the ASU Research Park in Tempe, Arizona, with employees across the country and customers around the world.

"We are grateful that the size and scope of PADT exceeds our original dreams. We had a lot of help along the way from our customers, employees, OEM partners, and vendors to reach this moment.  Over this span, our core objective remains: Each and every day, earn our place and bring value to the broad Engineering and Manufacturing communities we serve," commented Ward Rand, Principal and Co-Founder heading up the product sales and support division.

Rey Chu is the Principal and Co-founder of the Digital Manufacturing division. He and his team were pioneers in 3D Printing and are still leading the way in advanced manufacturing. "I am grateful for the chance to have been involved in the entrepreneurial journey of starting and nurturing PADT over this remarkable 30-year span. As we celebrate this milestone with great joy and pride, we are thankful for the trust our customers and partners have bestowed upon us and the unwavering dedication of the entire PADT team that has made it possible."

"The part of this journey that I did not expect, and that has been the most rewarding, has been the people we have been able to work with — our customers, our partners, and especially our employees through the years. We have seen them grow their careers, businesses, and families. Being even a small part of their personal and professional success has been one of the great pleasures of the past thirty years," said Eric Miller, Principal and Co-founder leading the engineering consulting division.

"Key to the success of the company are the revolutionary technologies of PADT's partners – solutions that improve customer livelihood, and PADT is proud to carry and support those products. Our main partner on the software side, Ansys, Inc., is the gold standard in simulation, and Ansys truly enables engineers to predict the future of their designs. Similarly, on the hardware side, Stratasys, Inc. shapes the future of manufacturing by providing the most innovative and reliable 3D printing and additive manufacturing machines and materials.  PADT is also honored to partner with Flownex, EOS, and Zeiss to provide their superb products to the communities," added Rand.

PADT would not be where it is today if it were not for its engineering and manufacturing services customers as well. Over the decades, the company has provided simulation, design, and 3D Printing to hundreds of firms in support of thousands of projects that helped bring new products to market. These customers quickly became part of the PADT journey, with some still counting on PADT since the early days of a handful of engineers, a smattering of workstations, and one Stereolithography machine.

The company will be celebrating with the community in October as part of their annual Nerdtoberfest open house in Tempe, Arizona, and will have a smaller celebration at their new offices in the Denver, Colorado, area in the fall. Those interested in attending should subscribe to PADT's monthly newsletter or follow the company on LinkedIn or at to stay informed.
