EOS appoints Australian distributor for its Additive Manufacturing systems

April 15, 2019

EOS, Krailling, Germany, has appointed John Hart, a Melbourne-based company which supplies new machine tools, special products and factory automation, as the national distributor for its Additive Manufacturing solutions in Australia. Jack Wu, Sales Director for EOS APAC, commented on the agreement, “This partnership marks an important step for us in Australia as it will help us to jointly develop this market further towards a broader adoption of 3D printing.”

“With learning curves and technology implementation accelerating, customers will be able to tap the full potential of Additive Manufacturing,” he continued. “This technology will help customers to address their most demanding industry challenges which they cannot solve with conventional technologies and approaches today, as such enabling industry solutions that weren’t thinkable before.”

Mark Dobrich, John Hart’s General Manager – Machine Tools, stated, “The addition of EOS to our product portfolio marks a milestone moment, not just for John Hart but for the Australian Manufacturing Technology sector, in that this will be the first partnership in Australia of a world leading additive machine technology company with a leading National Australian machine tool distributor.”

“It is our belief that the Australian Manufacturing Industry has worked through the investigation stage of additive technology and is now preparing to enter the evaluation and adoption phases. The timing of this agreement places John Hart at the forefront of this technology and provides us with an opportunity to take a leadership position in the development and adoption of the technology with the Australian Manufacturing Industry, further enhancing our mantra of providing world class solutions.”

John Hart will showcase the Additive Manufacturing technology on offer by EOS on its stand at Austech 2019, Australia’s Advanced Manufacturing and Machine Tool Exhibition, from May 14–17, 2019.
