CHANGES ARE NEEDED TO ENSURE PRODUCT INNOVATION AND SUPPORT LONG-TERM GOALS

The leadership team and I have been working on a new organizational structure, and as part of this new plan we will reduce staff at MakerBot by 30%. Greater focus on long-term goals is key to our success, and we must reduce the pressure and distraction of chasing short-term market trends. As part of Stratasys, we believe in the long-term opportunities in desktop 3D printing.


New CEO Nadav Goshen’s blog post confirmed rumors of even more layoffs at Makerbot. Reports from techcrunch and 3dprint.com¬†indicate that yesterday’s¬†30% reduction amounts to about to about 80 people.

More news of this nature seems likely as they continue to zero in on education and enterprise opportunities.
