March 16, 2021 – Marxent, a provider of 3D and augmented reality (AR) solutions for e-commerce and sales in the furniture and home improvement market, has announced that the company is opening a new office in Tel Aviv, Israel.

“We are excited to develop a presence in Israel, known for its innovative and thriving high-tech ecosystem,” said Beck Besecker, CEO and Co-Founder of Marxent. “Ofer has demonstrated leadership in 3D content and is well known in the industry. His expertise will be instrumental in helping us to scale to meet marketplace demand as we expand in Europe and the Middle East.”
Commenting on the announcement, Rubin said: “The combined goals of establishing a presence for Marxent in Israel while working to scale up the company’s 3D content creation capabilities will take full advantage of my experience.” He added, “As we add new clients both in the US and internationally, our mission remains to make 3D as easy as possible for retailers.”
