Additive Industries, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, is expanding its team to accelerate global sales of its industrial metal Additive Manufacturing systems equipment. In addition to its direct sales in key markets, Additive Industries reports it will build a network of agents to accelerate the implementation of the integrated metal AM systems in demanding industries such as aerospace, automotive, high tech and medical devices.
In order to attract and support leading agents in industrial capital investment goods, Additive Industries has appointed Bart Leferink, a seasoned 3D printing executive, to gain global coverage through channel partners, initially in Europe and North America, followed by Asia in 2018.
Prior to joining Additive Industries, Leferink was Channel Director at Prodways (Industrial and professional 3D printing; Euronext – PWG) and has over twenty-five years experience in sales and marketing, specifically in setting up new business channels. “I’ve spent most of my career driving the go-to-market of high quality systems and solutions in professional markets,” stated Leferink. “I am very excited to join the fast growing team of Additive Industries and contribute to expansion of the global installed base of its MetalFAB1 industrial additive manufacturing systems.”
