Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), the leader in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, and MakerBot, the leader in desktop 3D printing, today announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement whereby Stratasys has agreed to merge with privately held MakerBot.
We believe that the combination of our two companies is expected to drive faster adoption of 3D printing for multiple applications and industries, as desktop 3D printers are becoming a mainstream tool across many market segments.
A press conference was held at 10:00 EDT today at MakerBot Industries headquarters. This event, which was shown in a live stream, is also available below.
We are excited about the future of 3D printing with MakerBot.
