U3DPS and its founder, Roy Kirchner, were referred to Ultimaker to become an authorized reseller
ODESSA, FL, December 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Ultimate 3D Printing Store, the leading expert in 3D printing technology and additive manufacturing, is proud to announce that it is now an authorized reseller for Ultimaker, a high-end 3D printer manufacturer based in The Netherlands.
Ultimaker targeted Ultimate 3D Printing Store to fill a void in the company’s reseller ranks in the southeastern United States, specifically Florida, said Kirk Matsuo, Channel Sales Director.
In its new capacity, Odessa-based Ultimate 3D Printing Store is focusing primarily on developing new clients in education, enterprise, manufacturing and engineering/architecture. U3DPS also is providing support to new and existing clients across the Southeast.
“Ultimaker is basically the No. 1 FDM printer manufacturer in the world,” said Roy Kirchner, Founder and President of Ultimate 3D Printing Store. “They are the Rolls Royce of FDM 3D printing,” Matsuo said the company became aware of Kirchner and Ultimate 3D Printing Store at a RAPID + TCT 3D printing and additive manufacturing trade show in Pittsburgh, PA after another reseller referred them as a possible candidate. Matsuo said company officials met with Kirchner and his team, and were impressed.
“We felt confident they would be an asset for us in our reseller channel,” Matsuo said.
Ultimaker has about 35 resellers across the U.S. Ultimate 3D Printing Store is its third authorized reseller in Florida with the others based in Tampa and Ocala, respectively.
In addition to 3D printers, Ultimaker also makes its own line of 3D printing software and printing materials. The company is best known for its latest 3D printer, the Ultimaker 3, which features dual extrusion that allows users to mix printed and support materials together and then separate the printed material easily without a special solvent. The Ultimaker 3 retails for $3,495 with a second machine, the Ultimaker 3 Extended, which prints up to 12 inches in ‘Z’ height, retailing at $4,295.
Parallel to Ultimaker 3 series, the award winning Ultimaker 2 is a popular 3D printer already known as a fast, accurate, and multifunctional printer series featuring a heated build platform and able to print both ABS and PLA, at a resolution of up to 20 microns, and a speed of up to 300 mm/s.
The target market for these high-end machines ranges from “anyone who is doing prototyping or design modeling” to educational institutions, including K-12 schools, colleges and trade schools, Matsuo said.
Ultimaker, which has offices in Massachusetts and New York, does not directly sell its products. It relies on resellers to locate new customers.
“We want our resellers to go out in our local markets and either have the opportunities or find those opportunities,” Matsuo said. “Ultimate 3D Printing Store, they’re going to have relationships with schools in that area, so that would be important for us.”
