MakerBot to Expand Sales of 3D Printers to Schools and Businesses to US West Coast

Desktop 3D printer manufacturer and Stratasys subsidiary MakerBot revealed plans to expand the sales of their devices to the US West cost, especially to businesses in schools in the region.

MakerBot will rely on Stratasys’ network and infrastructure to better support existing partners as well as to host events for teachers, students and businesses. In a recent successful pilot program, the company distributed 18 MakerBot Replicator desktop 3D printers to universities and schools across California. This program generated interest and increase in regional sales, MakerBot explains.

MakerBot was founded and is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, and has therefore a stronger foothold in East Coast markets. With their headquarter still in Brooklyn, the company closed down their local assembly line in April this year and outsourced production to Jabil.
