Divergent Technologies, Inc. is a Delaware corporation formed in 2014 and headquartered in Gardena, CA. Divergent provides a disruptive new approach to auto manufacturing that incorporates 3D printed joints, called a NODE™, which connect carbon fiber structural materials, resulting in an industrial strength chassis that can be assembled in a matter of minutes. Its mission is to revolutionize the auto manufacturing process by making vehicles lighter, stronger, more environmentally friendly and cheaper to manufacture. Divergent plans to license its manufacturing software platform to smaller automotive manufactures to reduce the required cost of capital to set up a manufacturing plant from $100s of millions to $10 million. To demonstrate the technology Divergent has produced the Blade supercar.
Reflecting the global interest of the technology Divergent’s investors include Horizon Ventures (investment funds of Forbes Global Billionaire’s List member Li Ka-shing), the French publicly traded global engineering firm Altran Technologies, S.A. (EPA: ALT) and the municipal investment fund of the city of Shanghai, Shanghai Alliance Investment LTD.
