Drogheda has a strong tradition of printing over the past two centuries, with newspapers such as the Drogheda Conservative, The Argus, Drogheda Independent, Drogheda Express, The Local News, Drogheda Leader and still includes a number of the largest printing firms in Ireland. Many famous people started their careers in the Drogheda printing industry including patriot and poet, John Boyle O'Reilly and comedian Dave Allen.
Mcor Technologies is an innovative manufacturer of the world’s most affordable, full-colour and eco-friendly 3D printers. They are the only 3D printers to use ordinary business-A4/letter paper as the build material, a choice that renders durable, stable and tactile models. Mcor Technologies was formed by brothers Dr. Conor MacCormack and Fintan MacCormack in a bid to democratise ‘innovation,’ by creating a set of accessible tools based on Selective Deposition Lamination (SDL) technology that would provide the freedom to innovate in an unlimited way.
