Anyone who has ever thought of building their own 3D printing company or product has likely had a vivid vision of their idea being utilized and enjoyed by people throughout the world. But, in reality, expanding into the global market is a feat that newfound companies can rarely do on their own. That’s why the Bari, Italy-based 3D printing companyRoboze appointed Gil Lavi as the VP of Sales & Business Development back in March.
Lavi’s new position essentially placed him in charge of expanding the company’s professional-grade Roboze ONE and ONE +400 3D printers throughout the market in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Thus far, they’ve found recent success by partnering with the likes of Lino S.A., which has helped them increase their presence in the Balkan Peninsula. Now, Roboze has announced three new partnerships with various resellers that will help bring Roboze’s 3D printer line to six unexplored regions.
“We are thrilled to face rapid expansion of our distribution channels in EMEA,” said Lavi. “We continue to see a strong shift of professional users from low cost concept modeling towards professional 3d printing solutions, with a clear focus on advanced materials for real functional applications.”
Roboze ONE+ 400
In order to expand into the Romanian and Bulgarian markets, Roboze has partnered up with the Craiova, Romania-based retailer CadWorks International. The new reseller will focus on implementing Roboze’s 3D printing technology into the automotive, electronics, engineering, and educational sectors, and will also exhibit their technology at the Bucharest International Technical Fair, which is taking place from October 12 to 15 at theROMEXPO.
To break into the 3D printing markets of Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary, Roboze has also struck up a partnership with Robustech, which is based Komárno, Slovakia. The reseller will primarily focus their attention on the automotive industry, which is one of the strongest segments in the region. Robustech will also be showcasing Roboze’s 3D printing solutions at theInternational Engineering Fair in Brno, Czech Republic, which takes place October 3-7, as well as theAutomotive Hungary exhibition in Budapest from October 19-21.
Lastly, Roboze will also expand into the Turkish region by enlisting the help of the Istanbul-based 3D technology reseller Yenasoft. The reseller has already established itself as one of the leading partners forSOLIDWORKS CAD/CAM solutions, and will now offer Roboze’s 3D printing technology to its professional clients who are seeking powerful 3D printing solutions. The company will present Roboze 3D printers from October 11-16 at the Maktek Fair in Istanbul.
All in all, the latest round of partnerships have Roboze poised to conquer the 3D printing market throughout Europe, as well as to get a foot in the door of the Middle Eastern market as well. By offering their professional-grade 3D printers at an affordable price throughout the world, Roboze is spreading out from their original confines in Southern Italy to professionals across the plentiful EMEA regions. For Lavi and Roboze, this year has been all about expansion, and that’s exactly what the Italian 3D printing company has managed to do thus far.
