From its founding in 2012, fbrc8 (pronounced "fabricate") has focused on the very best services and products in the 3D printing and scanning arena.
fbrc8 has curated a portfolio of best-of-breed technologies that we work with, including most notably Ultimaker for whom we provide Assembly, Logistics, Support & Repair services across the whole of North and South America. Other partner companies include Smarttech 3D Scanners, and Thought3D's products including Magigoo print adhesives, and the highly innovative Drywise inline filament conditioning and drying system.
Working both as a local application engineering and support function on behalf of leading non-US brands, and as a service bureau, project workflow consultant, and in some cases reseller, or best-of-breed technologies to end-users across the USA, fbrc8 brings a unique perspective and detailed hands-on expertise with the products to help deliver the very best from our customers' investments in digital manufacturing technology.
Headquartered in Memphis, TN, one of the major shipping and transportation hubs in America, fbrc8 LLC is ideally located for fast and affordable distribution across the USA, and we work in close partnership with the best suppliers to ensure fast, cost-effective access to the best quality products.
