Makerbot has upgraded its European sales and service options with a new agreement with Datech to launch 9 sales and service outposts on the continent.
This reseller network will distribute Makerbot’s printing and scanning products in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Spain.
Availability of machines, materials and services will begin this month, with the aim of increasing Makerbot customer support across Europe.
“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,” trumped 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.
