By partnering with the distributor Alloys, MakerBot is going expand its footprint in Australia. With more than 30 years of experience, Alloys is going to sell MakerBot’s 3D printing and scanning products to educators, professionals and consumers throughout Australia.
The distributor will also host MakerBot 3D Ecosystem showcases in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide until the end of March.
“We believe that with a network of more than 1,000 resellers and four showrooms in major cities throughout Australia, Alloys will help us expand our business in Australia,” noted Mark Schulze, general manager of the Americas and Emerging Markets for MakerBot.
Paul Harman, CEO of Alloys, stated, “We’re thrilled to partner with MakerBot, a market leader in the 3D printing industry, to offer our resellers a comprehensive 3D printing portfolio. Alloys has a long history of working with resellers in traditional and large-format printer channels, catering to design and engineering professionals, a market sweet spot for MakerBot. We think partnering with MakerBot will provide us with a great starting point to grow the 3D printing market in Australia. The MakerBot 3D Ecosystem is a market distinguisher and helps make 3D printing accessible in more ways than any other 3D printer brand on the market, which is a key selling point in what our resellers are looking for.”
