CEO Kevin Czinger to Give Keynote Speech on “Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing” as Part of O’Reilly Solid Conference in San Francisco

Most people are unaware just how much environmental damage occurs as a result of auto manufacturing and its devastating impact on our health and nature around us. Divergent is here to change that.

Divergent Microfactories today announced Founder & CEO Kevin Czinger will be a keynote speaker at the O’Reilly Solid Conference being held in San Francisco, June 23-25, 2015. Czinger’s keynote “Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing” will look at the health, environmental and economic impacts associated with traditional car manufacturing. It offers an innovative alternative to dramatically reduce pollution and capital costs through a proprietary manufacturing platform that incorporates 3D printing. As part of the presentation, Czinger will unveil the company’s prototype, the world’s first 3D printed supercar, based on this technology. The “Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing” keynote will be delivered on June 24, 2015 at 9:30am at Herbst Pavilion in Fort Mason.

“Most people are unaware just how much environmental damage occurs as a result of auto manufacturing and its devastating impact on our health and nature around us. We are here to change that,” said Kevin Czinger, founder & CEO, Divergent Microfactories. “We’ve created a platform that stands to revolutionize auto manufacturing as we know it. I look forward to speaking at Solid to share our creation and our vision of a healthier future, one not at war with nature and where we productively use our hands and minds to create as members of small innovative teams.”

Kevin Czinger has deep experience in the automotive industry. He was an early pioneer in the electric vehicle market as co-founder & CEO of Coda Automotive, where he designed, built, and certified one of the first all-electric automobiles. During his time at Coda, Kevin learned that manufacturing cars is a far bigger environmental problem than fueling them. This knowledge led to the inspiration for what would become Divergent Microfactories, a company aimed at reducing the auto industry’s environmental impact and democratizing the design and building of cars.

The long-term vision of the company is to place its technology platform in the hands of small entrepreneurial teams around the world – making innovation affordable on a large scale. This innovation will further expand with the application of Divergent’s technology from cars to other large complex structures.
