XJet has appointed respected industry leader Andy Middleton as Business Director for Central Europe, a new role at XJet. The announcement comes in a wave of growth for the company as the business ramps up its infrastructure, with a particular emphasis on its global sales network.
According to Middleton, his interest in the new role lies in the innovation XJet demonstrates: “The core technologies behind XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting AM are phenomenal, resulting in groundbreaking material and part properties. This is what it’s all about for customers, essential for high-performance ceramics and metal, so I’m excited by the journey XJet is taking.”
With nearly thirty years in executive positions in the print and additive manufacturing industries, Middleton has a record for building sustainable business growth. Reinforced by his most recent role as Executive Vice President at Stratasys, managing the company’s business in Europe, he also brings a wealth of go-to-market experience to the role.
“The technical ceramics market is close to tipping point with AM technology, so it’s imperative that highly certified industries such as MedTech, aerospace, and energy – that use so many of these materials – understand the potential of XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology. A huge amount of compliance is required for these high-performing engineering materials, and it’s my opinion XJet is uniquely capable of meeting those criteria with a scalable solution,” stated Middleton.
