Newly established contract additive and advanced manufacturing services company Evanswerks Creative Lab officially opened its Cape Town factory late last month. The company is the product of foreign direct investment in the country and the city, having been established by two US investors, Justin Evans and Jason Moore.

The company currently has offices in Cape Town, Taiwan and Canada, but the Creative Lab facility in Cape Town is its only factory.

The new factory is run strictly on kaizen principles. Kaizen, popularised by its successful use by Japanese companies, means “continuous improvement”.

The company’s aim is to “democratise the future through creative engineering”, and “take the pain and frustration out of invention”. It will do so by providing full-spectrum support to inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs, to turn their ideas into products. The company can help clients turn their ideas into designs, and those designs into additive manufacturing machine (3D printer) production files. It can produce prototypes, refine those prototypes to production standard and undertake limited batch production runs of up to hundreds of units.
