HK Holdings team partner up with 3D Systems.
The additive manufacturing technology supplier will offer 3D Systems’ full line of 3D printers, materials and 3D scanning solutions.
HK Holdings Group currently offers a range of 3D printing, laser marking and electro discharge machining technologies as well as high specification machine tool and manufacturing solutions. Under this new agreement, their additive manufacturing offering will now include 3D Systems ColorJet, MultiJet, Selective Laser Sintering, Stereo-lithography and Direct Metal 3D printers, as well as its consumer and desktop machines and 3D scanning technology.
"We are thrilled to partner with 3D Systems and to offer their entire portfolio of 3D digital design and fabrication solutions,” Mr Steven Wilcox, Managing Director of HK Holdings commented. “This gives all of our customers access to the broadest range of 3D tools and technologies on the market. It will also help our customers meet the most demanding applications, particularly those in aerospace, automotive and healthcare."

Wilcox, continued; "As we progress, we will be targeting sales growth of 50% year on year as we widen the remit of HK Holdings to cater for the additive manufacturing and reverse engineering marketplace. What this new product line gives end users is 'freedom of design' whereby the complexity of product design is not constrained by the parameters of a machine tool.”
Michele Marchesan, Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, Professional Products, at 3D Systems commented; "We are excited and honoured to work with a world-class 3D printing provider of the calibre of HK 3D and to help their customers benefit from the full range of 3D Systems product portfolio. HK 3D brings a deep understanding of customer requirements within our industry and a robust support network and this will multiplex our coverage throughout the UK and Ireland."
3D Systems has been busy increasing its global distribution network and recently announced a partnership with Konica Minolta to expand its footprint in the Australian 3D printing market.
