NESS ZIONA, Israel, July 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nano Dimension, a leading additive electronics provider (Nasdaq, TASE: NNDM), announced today it has entered the Chinese market with a strategic partnership with the AURORA Group, a leading distributor of additive manufacturing systems. The AURURA Group will market and sell Nano Dimension’s award-winning DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printer for electronics to customers in China.
In addition to the strategic partnership, the AURORA Group also purchased a second DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printer. The AURORA Group is the majority shareholder of General Integration Technology (GIT), a provider of 3D software and distributor of 3D printers, that recently purchased and successfully installed a DragonFly 2020 Pro for its showroom in Taichung, Taiwan.
The partnership expands Nano Dimension’s Asia Pacific market coverage that already includes Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. According to a January 2018 market research report from the International Data Corporation (IDC), China’s 3D printing market is leading Asia and growing rapidly. 3D printing in China benefits from government support and both industrial and private consumer investments in the technology.
“China is one of the world’s largest and most important electronics manufacturing and design markets, and establishing the correct foothold in the market is key for Nano Dimension.” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “AURORA has years of operating experience in the manufacturing sector, and with its extensive resources and unique network of 1,500 offices, 300,000 customers, including more than 3,000 customers in electronics industries, we believe it is very well positioned to give us fast market access to realize the full potential of the DragonFly 2020 Pro in China. We look forward to developing the Chinese market together by leveraging AURORA’s significant presence.”
