Steven Longpre

Steve recently joined Vermont Technical College after serving as Operations Manager at the Berkshire Innovation Center in Pittsfield, MA. He’s the founder of BSS Additive, a Massachusetts based 3D printing materials company and inaugural member of the Vermont sponsored New England Regional Defense Industry Collaboration. In 2019, BSS was awarded a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement from the U.S. Navy to “Advance the Art of Possible” for “Expeditionary Additive Manufacturing” to serve the needs of the U.S. Warfighter.

Steve holds a BS in Geology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and has worked as a prototype engineer, materials researcher, serial entrepreneur and mentor in the field of polymer and metal additive manufacturing, education and training, since 2010. A weekly commuter from his home in South Hadley, MA, he hopes to one day fulfill his passion for architecture, human centered design and sustainable construction by helping to build homes in Vermont out of locally sourced and repurposed materials.
