Geldermalsen, The Netherlands, September 16, 2014 – Today, the Netherlands-based, award-winning 3D printer manufacturer has announced availability of its products to North American customers through its partnership with fbrc8, who has the license and capability to assemble Ultimaker 3D printers directly in the US for faster and more cost-effective shipment to the North American market. Full technical support and customer services are available locally to provide more timely care for Ultimaker customers in the region.

“Within a short few years, 3D printing has already influenced many industries from fashion to manufacturing, and from medical to food production; the opportunities are simply limitless. Many of our European users have benefited from not only our printers but also our expertise and support to the open-source community. We are happy to extend this to our North American customers, who have been waiting eagerly for local availability and support. We can't wait to see more participation from the North American region to our creative community”, says Ultimaker’s CEO, Siert Wijnia.

For all worldwide customers, Ultimaker ships every Ultimaker 2 3D printer with three free rolls of filament plastic in red, white and blue until mid-October to celebrate this exciting milestone for the company.
