In the funding announcement, the company said “CADDi is committed to rapid expansion in pursuit of our mission to unlock the potential of customers, partners, employees, and all entities engaged in manufacturing.”

The new round of  investment will be mainly used to grow the CADDi manufacturing division, enhance the technological capability of CADDi Drawer, and further expand their global workforce.

These steps will look to help them achieve ambitious goals of generating $10 billion in revenue by 2030, with CADDi Drawer contributing over $100 million in ARR within a few years and $1 billion in revenue by 2030. A significant building block of that strategy is growth in the North American market with the US office expanding to 100 employees within a year.

CADDi Manufacturing and CADDi Drawer

CADDi was first established in November 2017, with the aim of revolutionising the manufacturing sector.  Their strategy for that ambition is by providing two innovative solutions: CADDi Manufacturing, which is a parts procurement platform, and CADDi Drawer, a cloud service for managing drawing data.

The news comes after expansion of their global office base in recent months, with the opening of a new site in Chicago in January 2023, and in Hanoi in March 2023.

The funding comes after San Francisco-based Zip secures US$100M in Series C funding, fuelling its mission to transform procurement with innovative solutions and rapid growth.
