HP Expands 3D-Printing Presence in Asia Pacific with New Metro Systems Reseller
Continuing its 3D-printing expansion into Asia-Pacific, HP Inc. announced today the appointment of Metro Systems as the first reseller of its 3D-printing solutions in Thailand, as well as its first IT value-added reseller (VAR) in the region to expand their business with HP into 3D printing.
HP says that today’s announcement expands the commercial availability in Asia-Pacific and Japan of HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution to Australia, Greater China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand. In June, HP reported that it had signed up 12 resellers for its 3D-printing solutions in Asia-Pacific (see story here).
As a certified HP 3D-printing reseller partner, Metro Systems will bring its expertise in HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D-printing technology to customers deploying the solutions, as well as value=added services such as the enablement of new applications and industry-leading response time and service quality.
“As we continue to scale our 3D-printing business globally, we are expanding our solutions’ availability through new resellers such as Metro Systems,” said Pavin Vorapruck, managing director for HP Inc. Thailand. “By doing so, we hope to help local businesses accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and overall digital transformation, while staying competitive in the $12 trillion manufacturing industry.”
Metro systems is a leading digital-printing solutions provider in Thailand with a focus on growing the South East Asia 3D-printing marketing. With a suite of Computer-Aided Design & Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) applications, the firm is said to provide complete end-to-end solutions for customers. Metro plans to deploy the HP 3D-printing solution in their headquarters in Bangkok.
“When we decided to expand our business so that we can offer our customers more comprehensive solutions, we saw 3D printing as the next step,” commented K. Thongchai Lumveerakul, president of DPG Business Group. “We chose HP as our 3D-printing partner because their solution is fast, reliable, the most advanced and easy to use. HP has been a valuable partner for us, and has always delivered.”
HP says it’s “quickly ramping the delivery of its HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solutions for customers.” Since announcing its commercial availability earlier this year, it says responses from customers and partners has been “overwhelmingly positive.” With more than 500,000 high-quality 3D-produced parts in the last year alone, it says its Multi Jet Fusion solutions lead the industry in speed, economics, quality, and reliability.
