HP has appointed Metro Systems as its first Thai reseller for its 3D printing solutions and its first IT value-added reseller in the region, as the vendor looks to ramp up delivery of the Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions across the region.

HP says the appointment will help local businesses accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and digital transformation.

A key focus is expected to be the manufacturing industry, where HP says its growing partner ecosystem enables businesses ‘to develop game-changing solutions that reinvent the manufacturing industry’.

Metro Systems will provide Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions, helping deploy the Multi Jet Fusion technology and providing value added services such as enablement of new applications.

Metro Systems launched its rebranded Digital Printing Group last month.

“By doing so, we hope to help local businesses accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and overall digital transformation, while staying competitive in the $12 trillion manufacturing industry.”

K Thongchai Lumveerakul, Metro Systems president of DPG Business Group, says “When we decided to expand our business so that we can offer our customers more comprehensive solutions, we saw 3D printing as the next step.

“We chose HP as our 3D printing partner because their solution is fast, reliable, the most advanced and easy to use.”
