Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the world’s only line of desktop, paper-based 3D printers, has just announced at Euromold that it has appointed former Z Corporation CEO Tom Clay to its board of directors.
Clay, a 3D printing veteran returning to the industry with this move, is credited with pioneering low-cost, professional-quality 3D printing, growing Z Corporation from an MIT start-up to a market leader with $47 million in revenue. He’s attending Euromold this week, to coincide with his appointment.
“At Z Corporation, Tom broke important ground by commercialising a promising new colour 3D technology and putting it in the hands of everyday businesses and schools,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd. “Tom is a fantastic addition to the board because of his profound understanding of how 3D printing can benefit the world and a shared vision of making professional-quality 3D printing available to everyone.”
Clay has served as CEO of Xtalic, a nanostructured metals company, since 2008. He spent the prior decade at Z Corporation, helping position the company for its 2011 acquisition by 3D Systems Inc. Previously, he was a U.S. Airborne Ranger and led reconnaissance teams while stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
“I share Conor and his team’s passion for 3D printing and making affordable, full color 3D printing accessible to everyone, businesses and consumers alike,” said Clay. “I believe Mcor’s product strategy offers the best route to affordable photorealistic color and believe that this will be critical to a whole new generation of applications. I look forward to helping any way I can.”
Other Mcor board members include John Ryan, chairman; Dr. Conor MacCormack, director; Dr. Alexander Domin, non-executive director; and John Hartnett, non-executive director.
