COBOD International, a Danish developer of 3D construction printing technology, has signed a new distribution agreement with Fortex, an Australian company, as part of the company’s strategy to bring cutting-edge concrete 3D printing technology to Australia and strengthen 3D construction printing in the Asia-Pacific region. The first BOD2 3D Construction printer will arrive in Australia in Q4 of this year, with COBOD equipment available for immediate purchase.

COBOD’s only continent missing was Australia, and with Fortex as a new distributor, COBOD now has customers on six continents using and selling COBOD’s 3D construction printers.

3D Construction Printing Technology to Australia 

COBOD has three distributors in Asia-Pacific: Siam Cement in Thailand, KA Bina in Malaysia, and now Fortex in Australia, in addition to direct customers in India, Japan, and Malaysia. COBOD is now opening a regional office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to better serve the region’s customers and distributors. Customers and distributors can visit COBOD’s regional office in Kuala Lumpur to see live 3D construction printing, a 3D printed building, and speak with COBOD’s experts in 3D construction printing, materials, architecture, and project execution.

“Fortex is proud to be laying the foundation for a new construction paradigm in Australia with COBOD 3D construction printers. The first printer in Australia will be the BOD2 model 5-9-2 which will allow us to build better homes faster, providing improved outcomes for both building companies and consumers alike.” 

– David Lederer, Chief Executive Officer, Fortex

Simon Klint Bergh, Head of Asia Pacific for COBOD, said, “We are very proud to be partnering up with Fortex to bring our state-of-the-art 3D construction printing technology to Australia. This arrangement, together with our new distribution partners Siam Cement in Thailand and KA Bina in Malaysia, and our new regional office in Malaysia, will mean that we will penetrate the growing market in Asia-Pacific even further.” 

COBOD is at the forefront of 3D construction printing in the world, with customers and shareholders including General Electric and PERI. The company distinguishes itself in the additive construction sector by partnering with major industry leaders and having a strong global presence.
