Duncan-Parnell, a leading provider of building construction technologies and services, today announces that it is retiring the Anvil Prototype & Design brand name.
This is an effort to lessen the confusion between the two brands and deliver the same expectations associated with the Duncan-Parnell name. “We have invested in 3D printing equipment and prototyping services since acquiring Anvil Prototype & Design in 2013. This investment has allowed Duncan-Parnell to offer its current customer base of architects, engineers, surveyors, and construction contractors additional capabilities with the advancement of 3D print technologies. In addition, it opened new markets for Duncan-Parnell in the production and manufacturing industries,” said Mark Duncan, President.
