Barcelona-based 3D printer manufacturer BCN3D has signed a distribution agreement with Turkish company 3Dörtgen, furthering its global distribution market. 3Dörtgen now has distribution rights within the Turkish market for BCN3D’s Sigma and Sigmax 3D printers as well as 3D printing materials and accessories.
Istanbul-based 3Dörtgen was founded in 2013, becoming one of the first 3D printing shops in the region. Over the years, the company has grown substantially as it now comprises a marketing team, technical service department, warehouse and more. The company is also known in Turkey for opening the country’s first 3D Printing Cafe, which enables makers or interested customers to use 3D printers for free in a casual environment.
Through the partnership agreement, BCN3D will leverage 3Dörtgen’s prominent position in the Turkish AM landscape to bring its 3D printers to a broader client base. The Barcelona-based company, which has maintained its open source philosophy, has expanded its market in recent months, with a distribution partnership in Poland and a successful $3 million funding round.
“We are pleased to cooperate with 3Dörtgen, an alliance which will support us to increase the sales in the Turkish market, where there is a high potential for the IDEX system and the distinctive duplication, mirror and multimaterial printing modes,” said Xavier Martínez Faneca, CEO of BCN3D. “Their considerable experience in additive manufacturing, combined with a top-quality technical know-how makes 3Dörtgen the right fit to help us grow and serve Turkish customers in the best possible way.”
Vehbi Yavuz, CEO of 3Dörtgen, added” “We are extremely excited to announce that our cooperation with BCN3D, one of the leading 3D printer manufacturers of the World. The IDEX technology that BCN3D’s 3D printers have, will absolutely attract the attention of manufacturers who need a low-volume mass production. BCN3D’s decision to enter the market with 3Dörtgen is an honor for us. We think that the power which both companies have, will feed the ecosystem that created by 3D printer sector in Turkey.”
