MELBOURNE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stratasys AP, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ:SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today announced the appointment of Melbourne-based technology supplier Thinglab by Freedspace as its channel partner to expand its market presence and penetrate new markets in Australia.
Founded in 2001, Thinglab is part of the Freedspace laboratories that offers comprehensive 3D solutions from design, scanning to 3D printing services to the Australian market. Renowned for its high quality and outstanding services, Thinglab will market the full suite of Stratasys F123 series, including the F120, F170, F270 and F370 3D printers to targeted industries such as design professionals, education and arts sectors.
“We are excited to partner with Thinglab to expand our reach to diverse segments such as high schools, small to mid-size design firms, and art producers given the talent of the team and their understanding of needs from these important markets. And I am certain that local customers will gain much benefit from the reliable Stratasys solutions and consistent quality of printed parts while receiving best-in-class support from Thinglab,” comments Ben Darling, Senior Territory Manager of Stratasys Australia and New Zealand Region.
“Over the decades we have witnessed 3D printing become an essential part of the design process and in recent years our customers have been seeking more accurate, safer and more reliable tools to help them advance their business. Many have explored 3D printing with low-end solutions which do not always meet expectations of operators or business owners,” said Joe Farr, Managing Director of Thinglab. “That is why we are so excited to add industry-leading technologies from Stratasys to the Thinglab portfolio – Stratasys products are the right choice for businesses and educators who are looking for professional 3D Printing solutions which work first time, every time.”
