MakerBot Announces National Distribution Agreement With Ingram Micro

MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, is pleased to announce a relationship with Ingram Micro Inc., a Fortune 100 company and the world’s largest wholesale technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle and logistics solutions. Ingram Micro is now authorized as a U.S. distribution partner for MakerBot, bringing MakerBot products including the MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer, the MakerBot® Digitizer™ Desktop 3D Scanner, as well as the MakerBot 3D Printing Ecosystem, to resellers throughout the United States.

MakerBot has traditionally sold its products directly to North American customers through its own eCommerce site, its own MakerBot Store in New York City and a limited number of select resellers. In 2013, the company expanded its distribution by selling its products in Microsoft Retail Stores throughout the United States, as well as online through Amazon. The new relationship with Ingram Micro is the first time the company has used a large-scale independent distributor in the United States to further allocate its products.

“Teaming with Ingram Micro is expected to allow us to reach more resellers in the U.S. that can now sell our products directly,” said Mark Schulze, vice president of sales for MakerBot. “We get calls every day from direct marketers and resellers asking for a relationship with MakerBot, and now, we can work with more of these companies through Ingram Micro, and expand the MakerBot 3D Printing Ecosystem. It’s a pretty exciting time as we see more rapid adoption of 3D printing and scanning not only in the engineering, architecture and industrial space, but also with more cutting-edge consumers.”

Under the new agreement Ingram Micro will distribute MakerBot products, which include the award-winning MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, the recently released MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner, MakerBot® MakerWare™ Software, and MakerBot® Filaments. MakerBot also owns, one of the largest online digital design destinations for free 3D printed designs.

“We believe that working with Ingram Micro will help further our mission of leading the Next Industrial Revolution through 3D printing and scanning,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.
