VALENCIA, CALIF. - A move into marketing its rapid prototyping products in South America continues to gain strength for 3D Systems Corp. The Valencia-based company said it has named Digicon SA as its distributor in Brazil.
Digicon was founded in 1975. It consists of six companies that distribute their own lines of automation, process control equipment and computer-aided design and manufacturing software.
Digicon, headquartered in Gravatai, Brazil, has a large sales office and service center in SÃo Paulo.
3D Systems earlier this year named a distributor, Robtec SA, to handle its products in three other South American countries. Previously, 3D products had not been sold in South America.
Robtec is headquartered in Montevideo, Uruguay. It handles 3D lines in that country and Argentina, Chile and Paraguay.
