Firebolt Group Selected to be Part of Automation Alley’s Project DIAMOnD PPE Resilience Grant Program



The Firebolt Group was recently selected to be a part of Project DIAMOnD’s PPE Resilience Grant Program. Automation Alley, funded by Oakland and Macomb counties, created the Project DIAMOnD—which stands for Distributed, Independent, Agile, Manufacturing On-Demand—program to address the urgent need to move companies into the digital manufacturing age of Industry 4.0 as fast as possible to help improve our region’s manufacturing agility and response to future disruptions.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to an urgent and massive need for PPE and ventilators. The unanticipated need, coupled with the inability to quickly ramp up production, contributed to government quarantines until the healthcare system could get stocked with resources as well as build the capacity to handle an onslaught of patients. This program addresses this problem by helping position our region as an agile, digital-ready essential source of manufactured goods in times of national crisis.


As part of the program, The Firebolt Group was awarded a brand new state-of-the-art Markforged 3D printer.
