MakerBot and Stratasys Complete Merger

MakerBot and Stratasys are now bonded as tightly as a couple of extruded molten thermoplastic layered photopolymers, having completed the $403 million merger deal announced in June. “Stratasys and MakerBot share a vision about the potential for 3D printing to transform design and manufacturing,” said Stratasys CEO David Reis in a statement issued today, to which MakerBot’s Bre Pettis added, “We are excited for the future—full speed ahead!”

Founded in 2009, Brooklyn-based MakerBot is the most recognized name in desktop 3D printers and Stratasys, formed last year by the merger of Stratasys and Objet, plans to preserve the MakerBot brand, management, and “spirit of collaboration it has built with its users and partners.” CEO and co-founder Pettis will continue to lead MakerBot, which will operate as a separate subsidiary of Stratasys. MakerBot has sold approximately 22,000 3D printers to date. Next up for the company: the MakerBot digitizer desktop 3D scanner, which promises “a quick and easy way to turn the things in your world into 3D designs you can share and print.”
