Mcor Technologies Furthers Access to Their 3D Printers in U.S., Opens Greater Boston Area Headquarters
Mcor Technologies is a 3D printer manufacturer we’ve had the privilege of reporting on quite frequently, as they stay in the news with not only innovations, but by offering programs and discounts targeted towards the educational arena. Their amazing products and designs being engineered with their full-color, eco-friendly 3D printers which use paper as their production material, continue to impress us all.
This is a company following through on their mission to make 3D printing accessible to everyone, with the outlook that the world of 3D printing should be that of democratized innovation. While their paper 3D printers are very popular with students and learning institutions, the Iris and Matrix are also well-suited in the areas of architecture, topography, art and sculpture, as well as being used in medicine for anatomical devices.
The company, founded in 2005 by brothers Dr. Conor MacCormack and Fintan MacCormack, is based primarily in Ireland. Today, though, they are making history for the company again on American soil as they also set down roots in one of oldest cities in the United States, at the Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Massachusetts. Recently, they have also opened an office in San Jose.
Just shy of their 10th Anniversary, Mcor’s new office will be opened with hopes of increasing business in the area for industry as well as educational institutions.
“This U.S. headquarters will provide world-class consulting, service and support directly to our rapidly growing U.S. customer base,” Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies, said at today’s grand opening. “Since our 3D printers are essential to manufacturing and education, we’re especially delighted to be located in Taunton with its rich history in manufacturing and industry and its convenient location between Boston and Providence.”
In celebration of the grand opening at the Taunton headquarters, it was a mix of old country and new as Mayor Tom Hoye looked on while Jan O’Sullivan TD, Ireland’s Minister for Education and Skills, proudly cut the ribbon in support of Mcor’s new horizons in Taunton, where the company’s sales, service, support, applications, and marketing staff will work.
“I am delighted to be here today to open the US headquarters for Mcor Technologies,” said Minister O’Sullivan. “This truly innovative Irish company with its unique approach to affordable eco-friendly 3D printing will make 3D printers available in schools and colleges across the US. The United States is the largest and most sophisticated market in the world for Educational Technology and delivering on the obvious potential of the Mcor product here will enable the creation of sales and marketing jobs in the US and high value R+D roles in Dunleer Co. Louth.”
We’ve reported on many different products being produced using technology like the Mcor Iris, which are so environmentally friendly and recyclable due to the use of regular paper, that Mcor has referred to it as ‘cradle to crave sustainability.’ Hopefully that achievement will work as a guide for many of the new startups following similar paths. Due to their quality in innovation, they earlier this year won GeekBeat.tv’s Best of CES 2015 Award. See our full story on that achievement as well, as they were rewarded for their creativity, quality, and recyclability in designing their products, with the Iris being particularly recognized.
