Graphene 3D Lab Inc. has announced a distribution and manufacturing partnership with Polymaker. Under the terms of the agreement, Polymaker (www.polymaker.com) will distribute all Graphene 3D manufactured specialty and functional filaments and provide filament manufacturing services on an as required basis. Polymaker’s manufacturing operation is located in Suzhou, China, and the company operates sales and distribution offices in Shanghai, China, New York, USA, Utrecht, Netherlands, and Tokyo, Japan.
Graphene 3D’s on-line filament store, www.blackmagic3d.com, will carry unique Polymaker filaments, including PolyMaxTM PLA, PolyFlexTM, and PolyWoodTM. Both companies plan to start offering each other’s products on their respective on-line stores in July. The agreement also includes provisions for Graphene 3D and Polymaker to collaborate on the development of an expanded line of graphene filaments.
Graphene 3D CEO Dr. Daniel Stolyarov commented, “This partnership with Polymaker is an important step for Graphene 3D on several fronts; Polymaker’s distribution network will expose our filaments to customers outside ofNorth America, and our contract manufacturing agreement provides us with a high quality manufacturing alternative to supplement our in-house extrusion facility. Polymaker’s existing specialty filament products also align well with our functional filaments, and we look forward to including them with our offerings.”
“Polymaker’s customers tend to push the boundaries of 3D printing and are always looking for the next innovation to use in their 3D printing projects. The Graphene 3D functional filaments are a natural complement for our customers and for our existing filaments,” added Polymaker President, Dr. Xiaofan Luo.
