Greg Morris

Co-Founder and CEO
Vertex Manufacturing, LLC
Greg has been involved in advanced manufacturing since the founding of Morris Technologies Inc., a business started in 1994 in Cincinnati, OH. Morris Technologies, and sister company Rapid Quality Manufacturing, were pioneers in the field of metal additive manufacturing. In 2003, Morris Technologies introduced additive metals to the North American market resulting in broad adoption of this disruptive technology across multiple industries. The additive metals technology became their primary niche and by 2011, Morris Technologies and Rapid Quality Manufacturing were considered the largest service provider of additive metals technologies in the world. In late 2012, GE Aviation acquired both Morris Technologies and Rapid Quality Manufacturing. In his initial roles with GE Aviation, Greg was one of the leaders of additive technologies within GE. With the formation of GE Additive in late 2016, he moved into an advisory role that focused on the broader Additive strategy that supported the organization with special projects. In early 2020, Greg along with his previous business partners and colleagues, started a new venture, Vertex Manufacturing, focusing on advanced manufacturing technologies including multi-axis CNC machining, automation and additive manufacturing leveraging their combined years of industry experience and the latest technologies serving the Aerospace, Medical, DoD, Oil & Gas and Automotive industries. In September of 2021, Vertex was acquired by PrinterPrezz, a Fremont, CA medical device company. Vertex continues to focus on a variety of industries and Greg’s role within the PrinterPrezz company is Chief Technology Officer. Greg has presented at numerous national and international events and has authored various articles for industry publications. Greg and his family reside in Cincinnati, OH where he is active in various organizations and sits on a variety of boards.
