The China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance and Materialise formalized their partnership through a signing ceremony at Materialise earlier this month. Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen and Luo Jun, executive chairman of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, were both present at the signing.
Through the newly signed partnership agreement, Materialise commits to support other Alliance members through software and training, while the Alliance commits to promote the legal use of Materialise's software.
"Materialise has long been active in the Chinese market and although we have supported many companies over the years, we were still somewhat on our own," Vancraen said. "Now, as members of the China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, we will be working together with all of the major players in the Chinese 3D printing market, with the shared goal of unleashing 3D printing's full potential in China in a sustainable and healthy manner."
