3D printer manufacturer MakerBot and international distributor WYNIT have agreed to a distribution partnership that will see WYNIT distributing MakerBot products in the USA and Canada.

Founded in 1987, WYNIT Distribution, LLC specializes in the distribution and reseller support of major brands in the consumer electronics, photo, wide formatting printing, security, outdoor leisure and adventure industries. MakerBot expects WYNIT to help expand the availability of MakerBot 3D printers and scanners in North America.

"WYNIT is a strategic and integral partner for MakerBot," said Mark Schulze, general manager of the Americas and Emerging Markets for MakerBot. "WYNIT stands out because it has an entire team dedicated to supporting 3D printing. This team is designed to help resellers add MakerBot 3D Printers and scanners to their product portfolio, and they will offer comprehensive support, advice and training to get resellers up and running quickly. We're excited to work with the team at WYNIT and this new agreement is a move we believe will help us expand our sales channels across North America, and reach our audience of educators, engineers and designers."

Already a distributor of various prosumer, professional and consumer 3D printer and scanner brands, WYNIT is slated to immediately include the entire MakerBot line of 3D printers, 3D scanners and filament.

We see this partnership with MakerBot as a great opportunity to expand our expertise and service capabilities around 3D printing technology. The specialized vertical market for customers we serve in the engineering, design and educational industries align well with MakerBot's full line of products," said Rick Slagle, vice president of Purchasing, Marketing and Business Development for WYNIT. "MakerBot's industry-leading technology, comprehensive MakerBot 3D Ecosystem, innovative design and world-class branding will be an exciting addition to our 3D printing category. Partnering with MakerBot will allow us to provide MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers to the quickly expanding list of customers that are requesting this technology."
