Würth Industry North America and Markforged signed a distribution agreement that will be effective at the national level. As part of this agreement, the distributor of supply chain solutions for fasteners, MRO and safety equipment will now provide the industry with Markforged’s portfolio.
“We are thrilled to bring innovative digital supply chain solutions to our customers,” said Dan Hill, Chief Executive Officer for Würth Industry North America. “By integrating Markforged 3D Printing technology with our existing kanban programs, we are able to offer quicker time to market and lower inventory costs. We’re able to cut out the sourcing, purchasing, and transportation costs and deliver the value directly to the customer.“
Würth Industry North America usually mainly supplies industrial 3D Printing solutions. With this new agreement, the company believes that Markforged’s metal and carbon fiber 3D printers will address the needs of the general manufacturing industry, as well as oil & gas, heavy equipment, and transportation sectors.
Würth Industry now provides several additional cost-saving options to its customers, including metal printed production parts and tools, rapid prototyping, and full-service digital Kanban solutions to better manage inventory. The range of 3D printed inventory solutions are limitless due to Markforged’s vast array of metals — from high-conductivity copper to industrial tool steel to superalloys like Inconel — all in a safe, fast, and easy-to-use platform. In addition, its composite platform can print in continuous carbon fiber, Kevlar®, and more, creating functional parts that rival aluminum in terms of strength and stiffness, but at a fraction of the weight.
“We’re excited to expand the global reach of our solutions with Würth and continue to push the bounds of what’s possible in additive manufacturing,” said Greg Mark, CEO and founder of Markforged. “This partnership truly opens up valuable potential for us, and for the industry. Markforged makes it easy to build anything you can imagine, and that capability will allow industrial manufacturers to lower inventory costs by printing production tools and parts – quickly and reliably.”
