3D-Printer Maker Stratasys Teams Up with Fuji Xerox to Expand Reach in Australia
For the last several years, various “2D” copier/printer companies have formed distribution agreements with the professional and manufacturing 3D-printer company 3D Systems – including Canon Europe, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Kyocera Document Solutions U.K., and Konica Minolta Australia. Now 3D Systems’ current main rival in the 3D-printer market, Stratasys, is partnering with Fuji Xerox Australia in a bid to strengthen Stratasys’s 3D-printing reach in Australia.
Stratasys, whose subsidiary, Stratasys Asia Pacific, will work with Fuji Xerox, notes that Fuji Xerox has a “long-standing experience in offering enterprise IT solutions,” including document-management products, large-format printing systems, and data-security services, to a wide range of customers ranging from enterprises to small and mid-size businesses. Stratasys provides 3D-printing solutions and advanced applications to companies across various sectors, including aerospace, automotive, education, medical, manufacturing and industrial machines.
Combined with Stratasys’ expertise in the 3D-printing domain and suite of professional 3D printing solutions and materials, Stratasys says Fuji Xerox Australia is “poised to drive local adoption of 3D printing and optimization of its capabilities.”
Ido Eylon, Vice president of sales for Stratasys Asia Pacific commented: “We are very excited about the partnership with Fuji Xerox Australia. The partnership marks an important milestone in extending our reach in Australia, assisting customers to accelerate their go-to-market strategies through streamlined product development cycle and customised production parts.
