Nano Dimension, an additive electronics provider, announced it has entered the Chinese market with a strategic partnership with the AURORA Group, a 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.”
“This is an important moment for our recently established Hong Kong office. We are proud to partner with AURORA as our leading partner in China,” Said Gilad Reshef, APAC Director of Nano Dimension. “The partnership with AURORA deepens AURORA’s exposure to additive manufacturing by expanding into 3D-printing electronics, paving the way for new markets and applications.”
“Providing our customers with the very latest in high-quality, innovative 3D printing solutions is key to the success of our company. Forming a strategic relationship with Nano Dimension helps us expand our offering to now include capabilities for 3D printing electronics,” said Daniel Chi, GM of 3D Business Unit, AURORA Group. “The Nano Dimension DragonFly 2020 Pro is a groundbreaking technology that opens unimagined possibilities for electronics designers and manufacturers.”
