Mcor Technologies, the Dunleer-based 3D printer manufactuer founded by Ardee brothers Conor and Fintan MacCormack is upscaling it’s workforce with 100 new jobs.
The company, founded in 2005, are the only 3D printer in the world that use paper for 3D printing as opposed to plastic or other materials. Now, according to this week’s Sunday Independent, they are targeting 2,000 sales a month – with orders already taken from companies such as Disney, Boeing and NASA.
Last January, Mcor launched the first ever full-colour desktop 3D printer – the Mcor ARKe – an innovation they called ‘a defining moment for 3D printing.
Mcor’s long term vision for innovation in the industry is to make full colour 3D printing more widely available and accessible to the latent creative market. The next step in doing so it expanding their workforce from 50 to 150.
New hires will be in support, sales and marketing, engineering and software devleopment. The company are hoping for annual growth of up to 50% having partenered with manufacturer Flex.
The link-up with the company – who make products for Fitbit and Google amongst others – means that Mcor’s staff at their base in Dunleer can concentrate on invention, R&D, design and sales, Dr Conor MacCormack said.
The company is looking to raise a further €5 million in investment for it’s expansion. That is likely to come from venture capital funding or strategic US or European investment.
In 2015, Mcor Technologies celebrated ten years in business since its foundation in Ardee.
