A Dublin office and printer supplies retailer has invested over half a million euro to bring the country’s largest online store to Finglas.
The move comes as 123ink.ie is aiming to establish itself as the go-to destination for 3D printers and accessories.
The market reached a global valuation of USD 16.75 billion or circa €15.7bn, in 2022 and is forecast to maintain a 23.3 per cent compound annual growth rate from 2023 to 2030.
With this new investment, the company is set to lead the way in Ireland by offering an unmatched range of 3D printing products and services.
“Our €500,000 investment underscores our commitment to making 3D printing accessible, affordable and user-friendly for all,” said Dave Doyle, commercial manager, 123ink.ie.
“Whether you’re a hobbyist, student, company or professional, we have products to suit everyone.”
Sectors showing significant purchase volumes in 3D printing include education, with numerous universities and colleges incorporating 3D printing into engineering labs and curricula, and dentists and orthodontists, by printing custom retainers and moulds onsite on the same day.
Funeral homes are also using 3D printing to craft personalised urns that offer families a meaningful way to honour their loved ones.
Mr Doyle said that 123ink.ie aims to make 3D printing accessible to Irish consumers by making materials more affordable.
