The Dublin headquarters is expected to hire 100 new employees and serve as phase one for the 3D printer manufacturer’s global growth initiative.

Industrial 3D printer manufacturer Markforged (Watertown, Mass., U.S. and Dublin, Ireland) announced the opening of its first official European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, part of the company’s planned global expansion for 2019. Markforged is opening its new European headquarters with the support of the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The Dublin office will be the company’s first office outside of the United States, and it will serve as the base of its operations in Europe to meet growing demands for affordable machines that print high-strength materials like carbon fiber.

Over the next three years, Markforged intends to hire 100 new employees, across all functions, to staff the new headquarters. To learn more about open positions, please visit: https://markforged.com/jobs.

The new office is the first phase of the global expansion that Markforged cited in its recent news regarding raising $82 million in a Series D round in late March.

“Launching our Dublin operations is a huge milestone for Markforged as we look to strengthen our business overseas,” says Darcey Harrison, global VP of sales, services and partnerships. “Our experience working with IDA Ireland has been nothing but exceptional – we’re thrilled to be joining such a thriving tech community with such support.”

“I am delighted that Markforged has chosen Dublin as its new European HQ,” says Heather Humphreys TD, minister for business, enterprise and innovation. “We all know the strong potential of 3D printing, and I warmly welcome their presence in Ireland and the creation of 100 highly skilled jobs. We already have a strong footprint of High-Tech companies in Dublin and we are very keen to expand that by attracting a wider range of specialist companies such as Markforged.”

“The decision by Markforged to locate their European headquarters in Dublin again confirms Ireland’s reputation as the premier location for fast-growing, innovative companies to build and support their future international growth. I wish Markforged every success and offer the continued support of IDA Ireland,” says Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland.
