Formlabs, the designer and manufacturer of 3D printing systems, announced further expansion into the European market today; doubling sta in their EU Headquarters and adding multiple distribution partners across Europe.
Driven by the success of their critically acclaimed Form 1+ and Form 2 desktop 3D printers, the company is accelerating growth in Europe to match the growing demand. In order to maintain its high standard of sales service and customer support, Formlabs has increased the size of their EU sta and partnered with key European partners to further expand distribution and service to new markets. These e orts have been designed to improve access to Formlabs technology and support in local languages.
“Europe is a key market for Formlabs and its diversity of culture, industries and languages is what makes it so interesting and challenging at the same time” said Michael Sorkin, General Manager at Formlabs Europe. “We have doubled the size of our EU sta and in just 6 months we will have four times the number of employees as we started. We are looking for a variety of skills, but most of all we want people who are passionate about 3D printing and want to disrupt the industry with us”.
“Moreover, we have expanded our reach by adding key distribution partners in more than 10 di erent countries including Italy, Spain, Benelux, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Turkey, and we’re looking for more”, added Sorkin.
Formlabs recently launched the Form 2, the company’s second generation high-resolution, desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer at Euromold 2015. The printer has received critical acclaim. TrustedRe- views.com noted that the Forms is “capable of the best print quality you can get from a desktop 3D printer.” Make Magazine also rated Form 2 as the “Best SLA 3D Printer” of 2016. The Form 2 began shipping to customers in late November and it’s available for purchase for €3,299 on formlabs.com.
