Joseph Merritt Company Adds 3D Printers to Its Offerings

Joseph Merritt Company signs with MakerBot as an official reseller of MakerBot's 3D printers.

Hartford, Conn February 25, 2014


The printing world has been evolving since the first inception of the printing press. Technology has increased printers capabilities; machines have gotten faster and smaller while increasing resolution and clarity. Printing is an ever-changing world and one of the most recent additions to this world is 3D printing. Many dispute that 3D printing is not actually printing, but rather manufacturing. Joseph Merritt Company, Printer, Sales & Service division will argue that whatever you call it, 3D printing perfectly complements their current offerings of printing equipment for the Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) & Graphic industries, and are pleased to add MakerBot's 3D printers to the lineup.

Merritt selected MakerBot's 3D printers due to their proven track record with stability and their affordable pricing. They are perfect for educational purposes as well as real world applications. Ed Perry, CEO and President of Joseph Merritt Company, comments, "A large portion of our AEC customers design in 3D. Our aim is to save customers time and money when it comes to rendering their designs. Instead of building a 3D model from scratch, they can simply print out models of their designs."
MakerBot, a subsidiary of Stratasys, Ltd., is leading the Next Industrial Revolution by setting the standards in reliable and affordable desktop 3D printing. Founded in 2009, MakerBot has built the largest installed base of desktop 3D printers sold to innovative and industry-¬‐ leading customers worldwide, including engineers, architects, designers, educators and consumers.
