2019 was a super busy but meaningful year for the whole Snapmaker team. We opened two new stores in Canada and China respectively, released two upgrades for the Snapmaker Original, launched the Snapmaker 2.0 Kickstarter campaign and broke a few Kickstarter records. It is no exaggeration to say that 2019 was a milestone for our company. After the Chinese New Year holiday, we are rested and it’s a good time to reflect on 2019 and plan for 2020.
Doubled Sales and Production Volume
We are amazed by the numbers we achieved in 2019: the team has grown from 26 to 50 members excluding production workers; the Snapmaker 2.0 Kickstarter campaign was supported by 7388 backers and became the most funded 3D Printer and Technology project in Kickstarter history, raising 7,850,866 USD in total. In the meantime, Snapmaker Original sales didn’t decrease but doubled; more than 30% of the Snapmaker Original users purchased the 1600mW Laser Cutting Module and the Enclosure V1.1. After focusing on developing reseller networks in North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, China and Australia, we’ve partnered with 120 resellers in more than 40 countries such as Micro Center in the U.S. and Jaycar Electronics in Australia.
