FRANKFURT, GERMANY — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 16, 2017 — Materialise, a global leader in 3D printing, and SYNNEX, the exclusive distributor for HP Jet Fusion 3D in the U.S. and Canada, have signed an agreement that will deliver a complete 3D printing package for large scale 3D printing operations.
“This partnership is a win for the 3D printing industry in making technology easier to acquire for manufacturers," said Bryan Crutchfield, Vice President and General Manager Materialise North America. “SYNNEX customers will now have easy access to Materialise’s software, the backbone of the industry, to optimize their 3D printing operations. The agreement will also streamline the sales process for customers seeking to purchase a complete 3D printing solution for their manufacturing needs.”
