3D printing companies Makerbot and Ultimaker announced the completion of their merger. Under the new brand, Ultimaker, the company aims to provide easy-to-use and accessible 3D printing hardware, software, and materials for any application.
Combining the product platform of Makerbot and Ultimaker under one roof, Ultimaker wants to offer a wide range of solutions to customers, with well-established brands such as the Makerbot Method and Ultimaker 2+ Connect. In addition, the open communities, Ultimaker Cura and Makerbot Thingiverse will continue to be managed by the new company.
The newly formed entity announced that it will invest capital to accelerate growth, drive new product innovation, further research and development, and strengthen its presence across the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific through market expansions. Nadav Goshen will spearhead the new company as its CEO, while former Ultimaker CEO Jürgen von Hollen has decided to leave the business after assisting with the integration and transition plans for the new company over the coming months.
“As we begin the next chapter together as Ultimaker, we will continue to focus on developing 3D printing innovations to advance the availability of accessible and easy-to-use 3D printing solutions,” said Nadav Goshen, CEO of Ultimaker. “By combining our teams and technical expertise, we can work towards developing and delivering a comprehensive portfolio of products to support professional, educational, and light-industrial applications.”
The new company plans to amplify R&D efforts to develop new products for education and professional customers, with new hardware and software innovations on the close horizon. It will continue to operate in New York and The Netherlands.
