our story

Founders Nick Pinkston and Jeremy Herrman created Plethora, a new kind of factory that offers anyone the power to build their dreams.

Nick grew up an aspiring inventor, his curious nature fueling a life-long study of how things are made. After starting HackPittsburgh, a community workshop designed to support makers, he founded (and later sold) CloudFab. Dedicated to connecting engineers and designers with manufacturers, CloudFab exposed him to the inefficiencies of the manufacturing landscape. Back at HackPittsburgh, he met Jeremy, a software engineer and maker who shared Nick’s dream of easy access to the modes of production. Inspired by the agility of software development, they saw the opportunity to apply the same strategies to hardware production.
