iMakr to open 40 stores with new
Global Franchise Scheme
iMakr has grown by 150% over the last two years. This tremendous success has been made possible by iMakr's unique blend of assets: a world-class brand, an ability to deliver innovation, an unparalleled engineering expertise and a true understanding of the 3D printing industry. Coupled with an acceleration of demand in the 3D printing market, iMakr believes that the time to expand its global presence is NOW.
iMakr is delighted to announce its Global Franchise Scheme
The new scheme will enhance iMakr's global brand with a local presence and will enable 3D printing experts and entrepreneurs to create their own 3D businesses. The company expects to open 20 franchisees' stores in 2018 and the same in 2019, all backed by the full support of iMakr's brand, systems, products and expertise.
"With our five years of experience, we believe that customers require local expertise and access to innovation to get the most out of 3D printing and this franchise scheme satisfies both those requirements," says Eric Savant, iMakr CEO.
"Desktop 3D printer shipments are expected to rise to over 6.7 million units in 2020 according to Gartner, 15 times the level of 2016," says iMakr Chairman, Sylvain Preumont. "We intend to support our franchisees to capture this tremendous potential."
