MA: 3D Printer Manufacturer, Mcor, Opens New Boston-Area U.S. HQ
3 Jun, 2015
Mcor Technologies Ltd, the Ireland-based manufacturer of the world’s only photorealistic-color, paper-based 3D printers, expanded its global presence by opening a U.S. headquarters at the Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Massachusetts.
This is the second U.S. office for the fast-growing maker of the world’s most affordable, green and color-capable 3D printers, with the other office in San Jose, California. The new office’s opening comes eight days before the company’s 10-year anniversary.
Mcor has pioneered color, affordability and clean 3D printing throughout its entire first decade. Unique in the industry, Mcor 3D printers use highly accessible and affordable 8.5-x-11 inch copy paper as the build material instead of expensive plastics or plaster. The company’s flagship 3D printer, the Mcor IRIS, prints any color anytime, uniquely employing a global-standard ICC (International Color Consortium) color map to provide the industry’s most accurate WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), photorealistic color 3D printing.
“This U.S. headquarters will provide world-class consulting, service and support directly to our rapidly growing U.S. customer base,” Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies, said at today’s grand opening. “Since our 3D printers are essential to manufacturing and education, we’re especially delighted to be located in Taunton with its rich history in manufacturing and industry and its convenient location between Boston and Providence.”
Also at the grand opening, which featured demonstrations of Mcor 3D printing technology, were Jan O’Sullivan TD, Ireland’s Minister for Education and Skills, who cut the ribbon and Taunton Mayor, Tom Hoye.
“I am delighted to be here today to open the US headquarters for Mcor Technologies,” said Minister O’Sullivan. “This truly innovative Irish company with its unique approach to affordable eco-friendly 3D printing will make 3D printers available in schools and colleges across the US. The United States is the largest and most sophisticated market in the world for Educational Technology and delivering on the obvious potential of the Mcor product here will enable the creation of sales and marketing jobs in the US and high value R+D roles in Dunleer Co. Louth.”
Mcor’s U.S. sales, service, support, applications and marketing staff will be based out of this office. The Taunton office address is 705 Myles Standish Boulevard, Unit 2. The phone number is 508-386-2488.
Earlier this year, Mcor earned the Best of CES 2015 Award in the category of 3D Printers from GeekBeat.TV at the CES International consumer electronics show in Las Vegas. The buzz has supported the company’s prodigious growth in the last 12 months, which includes the doubling of its employee count and 77-percent growth in the company’s sales and distribution channel.

Mcor 3D printers create complex, durable and stable physical 3D models from layers of paper printed with ink and bonded together. Hard as wood, the models can be tapped, threaded, hinged, and made water resistant and flexible. Users can print hollows and moving parts, and recycle used models for cradle-to-grave sustainability.
Mcor 3D printing is ideal for:
- Students across academic disciplines.

- Manufacturers who use lots of prototypes during product design and development.
- Geographic information systems professionals who create 3D landscapes.
- Architects seeking affordable building models.
- Artists looking for new ways to produce sculptures.
- Animators seeking to bring figures into three physical dimensions.
- And medical professionals creating anatomical models to improve surgical outcomes.
