Nottingham, UK-based ArtSystems has signed up as a distributor for Stratasys' an innovative 3D printer range across the UK & Ireland. The move will see ArtSystems developing a reseller channel in partnership with Stratasys and supporting resellers with technical, sales, marketing and account management services.
In fact ArtSystems have a long history of reseller and channel development and have a proven track record in bringing new products to market. It was this unique knowledge and experience that were key factors in Stratasys choosing ArtSystems for this prestigious deal.
Matthias Gukelberger is Director Channels EMEA at Stratasys GmbH. He expanded on why Stratasys chose ArtSystems, saying that, “ArtSystems has a strong reputation in the CAD/technical marketplace and is known for its ability to develop reseller channels that are robust and effective. In ArtSystems we found a unique value wholesaler, that provides far more than superior logistical support to resellers, namely business development, pre-sales support, installation and post-sales services for the Idea Series solutions.”
For their part, ArtSystems are just as delighted with the new relationship as Managing Director, Steve Hawker pointed out: “We have always seen Stratasys as the key mover in the 3D market and the only vendor partner for us that made sense for the way we work.”
The new partnership underlines ArtSystem's ability to recognise trends and drive new developments forward. The company will be growing the UK and Irish market for 3D print by recruiting new resellers and empowering them to be proactive within their own specific sectors. The new resellers recruited by ArtSystems will benefit from proven expertise in sales, marketing and ongoing business development campaigns as well as technical support, to help them grow their share of the 3D market and their profitability.
This is all good news for end users too. They will now have access to a professional and well-trained reseller channel that can understand their requirements, and propose the right product for their business from the innovative 3D printing solutions manufactured by Stratasys.
