Hotends LLC's Story

Hotends.com was founded in 2011 by Brian Reifsnyder of Reifsnyder Precision Works with the principal mission to create a better more elegant hotend called the J-Head. Since then the J-Head has gone through many different revisions working to attain a solid working, fast printing, low part count, premium hotend.

In 2018 the business was split from the manufacturing company and Hotends LLC founded by Nicholas Stratton was formed to assume ownership of hotends.com. Hotends LLC has a renewed focus on innovation while maintaining a high quality product, setting industry standards and to support the 3D community.
