Based on over three decades of manufacturing experience, we can offer our partners a full range of support from all directions, making H2 a rare one-stop shop that can address almost any business challenge.


H2 is proud to be aligned with Colorado Tech Shop (CTS), another organization led by H2 CEO, Heidi Hostetter. This partnership allows H2 to create and test new products and services and to date, these new solutions have helped CTS achieve 3X revenue growth and upwards of 65% in profitability.

It is our goal to enable a more robust manufacturing ecosystem in Colorado to help the economy flourish. Manufacturing has one of the highest job creation multipliers across all industries. When manufacturers are growing, the Colorado community thrives.

Heidi Hostetter won CMA's Woman of the year

She worked with a local shop to start developing reusable masks for the underserved communities of Colorado. Between her and the shop, they were able to provide reusable masks in a time of crisis to Children’s Hospital, Crossroad, and non-profits across the state. Then H2 developed a safety system to help manufacturers and businesses in Denver and Boulder counties open up sooner and safely to prevent damage to these Colorado businesses. And in the end, she wants to share that it is really her team that made it all happen.

“This award isn’t really mine to claim but rather mine to be reminded of humility and hard work and to continue to strive to do right by my colleagues.”



The spreadsheet and dashboard that H2 Manufacturing Solutions built for me is the first step in gathering the data and insights I need run my business effeciently and plan for growth. I'm truly grateful for the experience that Joe and Heidi brought to my request. They offered solutions I didn't know I needed and I really appreciate that they built a tool for my business that I didn't even know I needed!

I met Heidi 8 years ago while working with Faustson to help implement lean manufacturing and ISO quality training. When H2 was formed, they had valuable expertise, and thus we added them to our short list of approved partners for Manufacturers Edge, the CO Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). We have contracted with H2 for a number of programs, including technology and innovation workshops, sales training, and in support of our Federal Additive Manufacturing Grant due to their expertise using additive manufacturing. H2 is a partner who helps to keep Colorado on the front end of innovative manufacturing technologies.

Heidi is passionate about manufacturing, and not just for Faustson and our clients, but for all manufacturing, particularly in our state of Colorado. When she is working with other machine shop owners and managers, Heidi doesn’t look at them as competitors – she views interactions with others in the industry as collaborative. In the past decade plus that I have worked with Heidi, I continue to witness first hand her relentless pursuit in making manufacturing great here in Colorado.

H2 provided excellent guidance for AMPT’s entry into the world of additive manufacturing. They have great connections throughout the industry and were able to connect us with the right players for pursuing our efforts. H2 also provided valuable advice on our additive road map and identified several pitfalls to avoid.

"There are four pillars, and everyone who has worked with me, for me, has heard this. I think that you have to have heightened self-awareness, you have to have ingenuity, you've got to lead from compassion, and here's the biggie, heroic ambition. And if there was ever a time for heroic ambition, it is now."

Heidi Hostetter
H2 Solutions

"Hostetter in particular is well known in Colorado for her political acumen for advancing AM—a sort of Rocky Mountain evangelist for additive who crisscrosses the state, networking on behalf of Faustson as well as H2 Manufacturing Solutions, her consulting service for advanced manufacturing. So in 2014 when Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper pushed forward infrastructure legislation to start an advanced industry accelerator branch fund, Hostetter seized the opportunity. The grant proposal stipulated that the accelerator would have to benefit the state’s seven top industry sectors, and involve private industry and a nonprofit as well as an academic institution."

We brought in H2 in when we started looking at additive manufacturing possibilities. They gave us outstanding insight into how it can benefit our business, and we are in the process of implementing 3D printing now. H2 is on top of the latest technologies, and they offer a fresh look at the challenge’s manufacturers face. Working with them everyday on the project was a pleasure. H2 does so much for manufacturing in this community with their volunteer efforts. They’re not just in it for the money.
