Founded in 2009, Afinia was born to offer specialty printing solutions with
best-in-class support at accessible prices. Our parent company, Microboards
Technology, has been offering media duplication products since 1989. This gives
us a rock-solid foundation of technical expertise, and decades of experience
providing the best possible customer service. You can read more about
Microboards here. In 2009, we could see the power of 3D printing in industrial
design, and we knew there could be the same great benefits for the consumer
market. Vice President John Westrum: “We saw some basic 3D printers geared
towards consumers, but they were hard to use, and the customer support was
basically non-existent. We decided to come out with a high-quality, low-cost
printer, and to take what we learned from our duplication business to provide a
level of customer support and ease of use that’s not matched by any other
company in the space.” Now, Afinia is expanding their specialty printing
products to include high-speed label printing as well.
