US industrial 3D printer manufacturer Markforged is creating 100 jobs as it opens its European headquarters in Dublin.

The new jobs will be created over the next three years and the company's expansion is supported by IDA Ireland.

The new Dublin office will be the first international office for Markforged, which is based in Boston. 

The company said it will serve as the base of its operations in Europe to meet the rapidly growing demand for affordable machines that print high-strength materials.

Markforged said that Dublin boasts "superior technical talent" while acting as a gateway to better serving the EMEA region.

"Launching our Dublin operations is a huge milestone for Markforged as we look to strengthen our business overseas," said Darcey Harrison, Global VP Sales, Services, and Partnerships at Markforged. 

"Our experience working with IDA Ireland has been nothing but exceptional – we’re thrilled to be joining such a thriving tech community with such support," he added. 

Martin Shanahan, IDA Ireland's CEO, said the decision by Markforged to locate their European headquarters in Dublin again confirms Ireland's reputation as the premier location for fast-growing, innovative companies to build and support their future international growth.
