NinjaTek and Taulman3D are working together to distribute a wide variety of 3D printing filament.
According to IDTechEx:

Two of the leading names in thermoplastic filament manufacturing have formed a powerful partnership, hoping to play an essential role in the industry. There are now over 300,000 thermoplastic extrusion printers in the world, with a total annual filament market of $250m in 2015. More information about the market is given in the IDTechEx research report, 3D Printing Materials 2015-2025: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts.
Recently, Fenner Drives spun out its successful NinjaFlex flexible 3D printing line into an entire subsidiary called NinjaTek, with six full-time employees. They have been extruding polyurethanes for over 50 years, and made their first TPU 3D printing filament in autumn 2013. Their experience in formulation and extrusion helps to make their filaments consistent and reliable. They have patented the process to create a low-friction, non-tacky, textured surface on Ninjaflex, so it can be extruded more easily. They have over 100 resellers globally, and sell via well-known 3D printer OEMs including Printrbot, Leapfrog and Lulzbot. It has a market in applications that require high elasticity, high impact resistance or high energy absorption, such as vibration damping, seals, toys and custom grips for robotics.
