Stratasys is eyeing the Australia and New Zealand’s 3D printing markets and expanding its reseller network in the region. Stratasys AP, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd., has enlisted TCL Hofmann and TCL Hunt as authorized channel partners in an effort to expand its reach into the Australian and New Zealand markets.
By expanding its channel partner network in the region, Stratasys is aiming to support Australia and New Zealand-based businesses and manufacturers in their adoption of additive manufacturing. Ultimately, the 3D printing company is vying to play a role in their transition to becoming smart, more efficient factories.
Ben Darling, Senior Territory Manager of Stratasys Australia and New Zealand Region, said: “3D printing has changed the ways that many things are created and as an innovator and partner of our customers, Stratasys continues to push the boundaries to ensure needs are matched with the most fitted solution, whether our customer requires 3D printed replica of a patient’s heart for pre-surgical analysis, or a customized masking jig in shop floor.”
Australia-based TCL Hofmann and New Zealand-based TCL Hunt are suppliers of industrial raw materials, semi-finished and finished products and machinery. With customers in various industries—including plastics processing, food and beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical, medical and industrial—the companies possess in depth knowledge about the Australian and New Zealand manufacturing markets.
As Stratasys reseller partners, the companies will use this experience and knowledge to market Stratasys’ entire suite of professional AM solutions, including printers, materials, post-sale service and software, to various industries and businesses.
“For many years we have seen 3D printing technology bringing an unprecedented revolution to many multinational enterprises, be it on screen or behind the scene,” added Joseph Hancock, Managing Director of TCL Hofmann. “The application potentials that professional-grade 3D printers can bring to Australian and New Zealand companies is huge and this is a very great moment to join the force.
“We look forward to connecting Stratasys’ long standing expertise in industrial-grade 3D printing systems to TCL’s customers, ensuring that they find the best tools and solutions that will allow them to upscale their businesses.”
