Rectron is the first company to bring MakerBots products to South Africa and will distribute the entire range of MakerBot products, including the newest generation of 3D printers, MakerBot Filaments and accessories.
“We are excited to partner with Rectron SA to add to MakerBot’s growing network of authorized international distributors and resellers,” said Mark Schulze, vice president of sales for MakerBot. “Expanding our global footprint and accessibility to our products is a very important step toward the goal of providing access to MakerBot 3D printing products throughout the world.”
Rectron will offer the growing capabilities of MakerBot’s 3D Ecosystem and Real-Time Prototyping to a wide community of individuals and businesses. This new distribution channel will enable designers to design and 3D print prototypes and products in a matter of hours or days rather than weeks, which MakerBot believes speeds up the innovation process by empowering users to develop new designs at a much faster pace.
“The popularity and usefulness of 3D printing has been growing tremendously over the past several years,” said Bruce Bradford, group business unit manager, printer category, with Rectron SA. “The possibilities that 3D printing offers the local education, engineering, architecture and healthcare industries are enormous. We are delighted to be named MakerBot’s South African distributor and offer MakerBot 3D printing and scanning products to our customers and resellers.”
