MakerBot 2015 CES
MakerBot at the 2015 International CES
This week MakerBot are at the 2015 International CES to showcase the real benefits of 3D printing with less of the big CES announcements they are synonymous with and more of a focus on materials and usability.
To coincide with this, the industry leader in desktop 3D printing has announced its latest distribution partnership to accelerate the growth of the MakerBot brand in Europe.
As of this month MakerBot Europe and Datech, Tech Data Europe’s specialist brand for the value added distribution of Autodesk software, will begin distributing MakerBot 3D printers, scanning products and filaments in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Spain.
“We believe that the sales distribution agreement between MakerBot Europe and Datech is the right step at the right time for both sides and will help MakerBot expand its market-leading position in professional desktop 3D printing across Europe,” noted Alexander Hafner, General Manager of MakerBot Europe. “Tech Data is already a distribution partner with MakerBot in the U.S. and partnering with them is designed to help us expand our activities and footprint also in the growing 3D printing market in Europe.”
This latest sales partnership will create a network of nine service centres in 2015 aimed to offer customer support and sales needs more efficiently.
MakerBot has launched a Reseller Zone platform to initiate the growth of its reseller network and enable prospective partners to get on board and update their knowledge of MakerBot 3D printing and scanning product lines.
