The Baltimore-based sportswear company partnered with The University of Maryland's Engineering Department, The Dow Chemical Company, Huntsman, Lectra, Bemis, Epson, Desma, and 3dMD, among others to make the new facility possible.
Under Armour employees and partners have access to various technologies at the Lighthouse including 3D Design and Body Scanning, 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping, Apparel and Footwear Prototyping and Apparel and Footwear Pilot Lines. The UA Lighthouse will serve as a hub for new product and process technology.

"We are excited about this game-changing opportunity and the endless possibilities created by bringing together our talented team and our world-class partners, to pioneer the future of design and manufacturing."
