When it comes to innovative approaches to 3D printing there are few companies that compare to the Ireland-based Mcor Technologies. Mcor produces the first-ever paper-based multi-color 3D printing solution, which utilizes a cutting and bonding, as well as inkjet, method of printing objects one layer of paper at a time. If you have been able to see the prints which come from any one of their machines, you would likely be amazed at the quality and accuracy inherent in the objects.
As the business continues its rapid expansion, they have looked outside the company to fill the role of Chief Operations Officer, and believe that they have found a man who is perfect for the job. Today Mcor has announced the hiring of Kevin Devlin as COO.
Devlin brings 25 years of experience in senior management in technologically advanced companies with him to Mcor. For the last 8 years he had been the COO of a Norwegian supplier of data management and security solutions called Tandberg Data. Prior to that he worked for other tech companies including Pillar Data Systems and Quantum Corporation.
“We are fortunate to have an executive of Kevin’s capability join our team, as we move to the next phase in our company’s development,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mcor Technologies. “I believe that Kevin’s experience in high-tech, high-volume industries will help us execute on our aggressive growth plans this year.”
The company has already grown by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years, but Devlin’s experience as COO within the tech industry over the last 8 years should allow the company to continue doing what they do best as he takes the reins of their growth engine. Mcor has recently laid the framework for their continued expansion as they opened a new US headquarters at the Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Massachusetts. Over the last 12 months alone, the company has witnessed sales growth of 77% while at the same time doubling their total number of employees.
With larges sums of investment capital being spread over numerous startups and existing 3D printing firms, Mcor is certainly not alone as the entire industry continues its torrid rate of expansion. With that said, this company is unlike any other, and with the proper management to steer them in the appropriate direction, could really become a leader within a major sub-section of the market.
