I had the accident to interview Tobias Redlin, current CEO at iGo3D, and one of the 3 co-discovereders. iGo3D has gone over a few structural alters over the last 12 months with the closing of their stores, the departure of one of the co-discovereder to Formlabs and the new arrival of Diogo Quental.
What happened to go iGo3D over the last 12 months ?
In the last 12 months iGo3D go ond to increase its focus on being the primary value-introduced distributor for 3D-solutions.
In March 2015, we became the initially distributor for Formlabs in Europe. In summer we became the exclusive European distributor for REC filaments, one the most relevant brands of 3D filament, compatible with all FFF 3D printing devices.
Sales have grown steadily over the last 12 months and in general 2015 was a really great year. In September, yet, as it is publicly known, my business partner and great friend Michael Sorkin left our board of directors to assist Formlabs create up their European sales and marketing network as General Manager EMEA. Michael was definitively really relevant for the company, but we decided which we had to see this alter as an opportunity for improvement. We begined and so a system of internal restructuring, with the goal to prepare the company for international expansion. As a part of this plan, we begined contacts with Diogo Quental, former CEO of BEEVERYCREATIVE, who joined the company in April 2016. Diogo is may already contributing to our plan and I’m really certain we can have great news to announce in 2016.
What’s the role of Diogo and why was he hired ?
Despite the good results iGo3D has since its creation, in most ways we yet face the same challenges as any other beginup. We know Diogo for really a few time and we wanted to have his valuable management experience in beginup environments. Besides contributing to the general improvement of the organisation, Diogo can focus on business development and international expansion.
And what’s your plan for this year?
In 2016 we can go on increasing the value introduced as distributor of 3D-solutions and we can begin new business units to respond additional adequately to market needs.
One of this units can be fully dedicated to work with primary corporations, by being their 3D printing partner who can advise them in identifying and implementing the most solutions.
One other business unit one can be made to be nearer to the private end users, advantageous know their needs and contribute specific solutions which may not be easily discovered in weight retailers. This information of customers can in addition be utilized to define the most valuable portfolio to provide to the resellers we work with. This can be the most way to encertain which just the most products can be on the market in retail.
Last, but not very least, we shall be revealing soon iGo3D´s Education Programme. We are fully committed to enable ereallyone to have access and manufacture the most use of 3D Printing and Education is the most channel for which.
