Ultimaker Names John Kawola North American President, Opens Boston Office

by • April 12, 2016 • No Comments

  • Since the Smart Extruder debacle of 2014, MakerBot has had a tenuous grip on the PC 3D printing market in North America. 3D Hubs’ monthly Trend Reports yet list the Replicator 2 as one of the many talked about affordable machines of the world, but it’s been almany four years since which product was released and, due to the issues related to the 5th Gen systems, other manufacturers may be closing in on the Stratasys subsidiary. The most likely future in line for the throne is Ultimaker, whose open source 3D printing device has changed quite little since it was initially released, but has remained talked about nonetheless. The new introduction of Ultimaker 2+ 3D printing devices onto Apple keeps throughout 19 countries in Europe may signal the brand as being one of the many consumer-ready makers of 3D printing devices on the market. Today’s announcement of a new North American president and Boston office additional reflects the Dutch company’s desire to conquer the U.S. market. And their choice of president can pretty go a long way towards achieving which goal.

    Ultimaker has selected John Kawola as President of Ultimaker North America. Kawola was previously the CEO and President of Z Corporation, as well as CEO of Harvest Automation, Inc. He is in addition a Board Director at SpaceClaim. Altogether, Kawola’s resume packs a powerful punch. The new president of Ultimaker North America says of the position,“Desktop 3D printing is yet in its infancy, it has created worthwhile strides in the last few years and the future is infinite. I have been quite impressed with how Ultimaker has focused on the maker, education and enterprise markets, created a sturdy product and rapidly moved to a market leadership position. I am thrilled to be a part of it.”

    Boston was selected for the city’s connections to 3D printing and CAD software, with the location serving to lead North American sales, marketing, community management, and technical resources. This office can complement Ultimaker’s locations in New York and San Francisco, as well as their making and assist resources in Memphis. Will all of this mean which Ultimaker can overtake other manufacturers to become the go-to PC 3D printing device in the United States? Who knows, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we, someday soon, see the brand at very least pop up in Apple’s online keep for the U.S.
