KAM Strengthens Capabilities

Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM) has announced additions to the leadership team, additional investments in its lineup of equipment and updates on building a facility for hybrid manufacturing.

John Murray has joined the team as President of KAM. In this role, Murray will oversee global business development and expansion of the company's technical capabilities. "Having driven additive manufacturing (AM) heavily into the European and U.S. motorsports segments since the late 1990s, John's work has had a direct impact on the design and testing of F1 racecars. He brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership acumen to the team, with over 25 years of experience in digital design, rapid prototyping and AM," said KAM Owner and CEO Brad Keselowski.

"I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with Brad for the past year and a half," said Murray. "During this time, I have witnessed him take KAM from a dream to reality. I have visited countless businesses all over the world who are using AM. Brad's tenacious obsession with speed in everything he does is like nothing else I have ever experienced. It is an honor to work side by side with him to blaze this exciting path forward in hybrid design and manufacturing."

Along with the addition of Murray, Steve Fetch has been promoted from general manager to Chief Operating Officer at KAM.

Technology Investments, New Engineering Center

In addition to strengthening the leadership team, KAM recently made the following equipment investments:

  • Installed two metal printers (aluminum and Inconel)
  • Expanded measurement and test capabilities via a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and a tensile strength tester providing enhanced measurement and material mechanical capabilities
  • Increased additive part removal and subtractive capabilities with a CNC precision saw.

The company also continues expansion of its Mazak CNC platform utilizing BIG KAISER toolholding technology and customized production systems. Simultaneously, construction has begun on a state-of-the-art engineering center that is targeted to be finished in Q3 of 2019.

KAM currently operates from a 70,000 sq. ft. facility that houses the following core competencies:

  • Additive metal manufacturing
  • High precision CNC machining
  • Inspection and scanning services
  • Full-service metallurgical laboratory
  • Powder booths
  • Fabrication
  • Post processing (stress relief, surface finishing, etc.).

All the investments contribute to KAM's business model of vertical integration, where customers have the option of completing a manufacturing job from start to finish in-house, as opposed to sourcing out parts of the process across multiple shops. KAM's model also allows for custom solutions within the different manufacturing processes, such as CT scanning and metrology, to hybrid builds that combine additive and subtractive technologies.
