Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper 3D printers in the world today announced that it has appointed RGF, headquartered in Cologne, Germany, as their channel partner for Germany. Based on the agreement, RGF will sell Mcor’s range of 3D printers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and will become the largest German channel in the 3D printing industry.
For over 25 years RGF’s network and community network of resellers has served the printing and advertising industries throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The RGF members are characterised by an extensive know-how in the fields of visual communication, print and media. RGF dealers specialise in digital printing, proofing, large format printing, colour management, prepress and photography segments. Their current partners include OKI, Roland and RICOH.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Mcor. We believe that we can leverage our extensive network to sell Mcor’s range of 3D printers into many markets,” said Mr. Thomas Meurers, MD of RGF. “Mcor’s technology provides top-quality output, colour accuracy, low cost of consumables and eco-friendliness, which will complement products already in our network.”
"Germany is a very an important market for Mcor and we are pleased to welcome RGF as a new partner in Europe," said Dr Conor MacCormack, Mcor CEO and Co-founder. "Finding a partner like RGF who can provide extensive reach with its 29 partner companies gives great confidence that they will substantially grow our business in the German market and beyond."
RGF joins a growing number of companies who are taking advantage of Mcor’s recent partner initiative; Southern Educational Systems (SES) and Plantin & Tetterode (a Staples company) recently partnered with Mcor in the southeastern states of the US and Benelux.
Mcor has been expanding its operations over the last few months through its partner initiative and by adding key staff members. In this vein, Mcor has announced that Julie Reece, most recently of 3D Systems and formerly Z Corporation, has joined Mcor as Marketing Director. Julie brings a wealth of experience and a reputation in B-to-B marketing communications, including social marketing, public relations, Website marketing, content, events, sales enablement and more.
Adds Dr MacCormack, “We are developing a growing portfolio of products, including our new Mcor IRIS full colour 3D printing solution, and now it is about developing the right channel and team to support this. With these things in place I believe Mcor is poised to take advantage of the fast growth in the 3D printing market.”
RGF will support Mcor at the launch of the Mcor IRIS at Euromold 2012 in Frankfurt, Germany, 27-30 November, 2012, Hall 11.0, Stand B109.
