Barcelona-based 3D printer manufacturer BCN3D Technologies has signed a distribution agreement with Bulgaria-based PrintMe 3D. The partnership, which will see PrintMe 3D distribute SIGMA and SIGMAX 3D printers, filaments and more, aims to expand BCN3D’s reach to the Bulgarian, Ukrainian and Balkan markets.
The distribution agreement marks BCN3D’s continued growth within Eastern Europe, where 3D printing adoption is on the rise for diverse applications. In Bulgaria, for instance, manufacturing companies seeking prototyping tools, schools and hobbyists are the leading adopters of AM.
“Bulgaria is a market not much different from all the other markets in the world,” said Evdokiya Nenova and Mariya Nenova, Founders of PrintMe 3D. “We believe that the most important factors for improving the sales of BCN3D in our country would therefore be building awareness and trust. Our aim is to offer only the best 3D printing brands and we believe that even though we represent only three manufacturers so far, every new brand has been chosen carefully and has something new and something better to offer to our customers.”
PrintMe 3D also distributes 3D printers from Leapfrog and 3D Ceram as well as materials and accessories from Fillamentum, DIMAFIX and 3D SIMO. Now, customers in Bulgaria, Ukraine and the Balkans will also be able to purchase BCN3D’s SIGMA and SIGMAX professional desktop 3D printers and accompanying materials and accessories.
“BCN3D has a lot of things to offer such as low price for professional, double extrusion printers, increased productivity, high quality and big build volume,” added the Nenovas. “Therefore, we appreciate our partnership, we appreciate that the brand chose us to represent their products on the Bulgarian market and we promise to help BCN3D build trust and awareness of the brand in this market by implementing our knowledge of the culture and behaviour of the Bulgarian people”,
“We are pleased to cooperate with PrintMe 3D, an alliance which will support us to increase the sales in the Bulgarian, Ukranian and Balkan markets, where there is a high potential for the IDEX system and the distinctive duplication, mirror and multimaterial printing modes,” commented Xavier Martínez Faneca, CEO of BCN3D. “Their considerable experience in additive manufacturing, combined with a top-quality technical know-how makes PrintMe 3D the right fit to help us grow and serve Eastern customers in the best possible way.”
Barcelona-based BCN3D has expanded its reseller network significantly over the past several months. Most recently, it signed a distribution agreement with 3Dörtgen, expanding into the Turkish market. It also recently partnered with Global 3D, which is reselling its printers in Poland.
