To digitalise the supply chains of the rapidly expanding Chinese market, Nexa3D has appointed Qun Zhang as Head of Operation, China, and joined forces with leading technology distributor VSTECS. The collaboration — Nexa3D’s first in China — was unveiled with joint attendance on the booth at TCT Asia in Shanghai. These appointments open another important chapter in the company’s rapid global expansion, which has already seen Nexa3D branch out from North America to EMEA and APAC.
China’s manufacturing industry continues to see remarkable economic and technological growth, as it embraces digital fabrication technologies across the entire product life cycle. The strategic appointment of Qun Zhang was based on his extensive experience in senior roles at HP 3D Printing, Stratasys Inc, 3D Systems and Z Corp. In his new role, Qun Zhang will work closely with Chinese customers and drive Nexa3D’s go-to-market and business model strategies for the region, to provide the innovative and cost-effective solutions to market needs.
Nexa3D’s new Chinese partner, VSTECS is the largest IT product distributor and service provider in the Asia Pacific region. It was listed on the Hong Kong main board in 2002 and added to the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect in 2019. The business covers nine countries, namely China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. It has 87 branches, serving more than 50,000 partners and is the leading partner for over 300 IT and printing brands including HP, IBM, Dell and Apple. It has one logistics base, three logistics hubs, four distribution centers, over 20 outlets and over 200,000 sqm2 of storage areas.
“VSTECS is a clear marketplace leader and a dynamic business with vast digital technology experience in the Asia Pacific market,” explained Avi Reichental, co-founder and CEO of Nexa3D. “Together, we are breaking geographic, as well as technological barriers to deliver the very best additively manufactured polymers to China.”
“As the Chinese market expands, we must provide manufacturers with more control over their supply chains,” said Chen Tao, vice president of machine and peripheral product business group at VSTECS. “No other additive manufacturing solution offers the same balance of productivity, quality and cost as Nexa3D’s, so no other technology can create the same level of supply chain resiliency and sustainability.”
Nexa3D makes ultrafast industrial grade polymer 3D printers that improves productivity by 20X and can reduce costs by as much as 85%. Nexa3D already has an impressive network of distributors across the globe. Manufacturers all over the world are soon to benefit from more control over their supply chains.
