The ‘pioneers of nontraditional manufacturing,’ ExOne continues on their journey of global expansion to deliver additive manufacturing and micromachining process solutions to industry leaders worldwide. Providing materials ranging from metals to ceramics to glass, The ExOne Company works closely with all their clientele in helping them to develop their concepts, designs, and prototypes. ExOne products allow their manufacturers “the freedom to produce objects that have virtually unlimited design complexity.”
In order to come through on these promises, a global presence is required, and ExOne is keeping up their momentum, with news today that they will be naming three new independent European sales representatives for Turkey, France, and Eastern Europe, respectively via:
HASMAK A.S., who will handle customers in Turkey. With over 25 years of experience and 100 specialists, they will be a great asset in terms of satisfying ExOne’s customer requirements. With this new partnership, ExOne is developing a valuable new market for 3D printing technology sales. HASMAK is family owned and specializes in industrial plant manufacturing and erection, annual and preventative maintenance, and industrial product distribution, with a major foothold in the following sectors:
- Thermal Power Plants
- Oil Refineries, Gas Plants and Petrochemical Plants
- Cement Plants
- Hydroelectric Plants
- Iron and Steel Plants
- Glass Factories
- Waste Heat Recovery for Power Plants
Kuttner, S.a.r.l. will be providing support to ExOne in France, as specialists in iron and steel technology, recycling of non-ferrous metals, energy management, environmental engineering, process-automation and foundry technology. Founded in 1949, they have a strong hold in the French market, which will be of great help to ExOne’s customers. They maintain that a strong competitive spirit allows them ‘to relay technological progress to customers.’
- Strict management systems for quality assurance
- Qualified leaders with each team focusing on one technology
- Highly trained technologists and project managers
BL Metal will work as ExOne’s sales representative in eastern Europe. Based in Slovenia, BL Metal was founded in 2009. They specialize in innovative technology in the foundry sector, which involves factories and workshops that do casting. They also work in various other industries and work in partnerships to extend their business in their region.
“3D printing is inherently a localized technology, and these appointments expand on our larger globalization effort to create a regionally-based sales structure that brings high levels of market knowledge and experience to our customers,” said Dr. Stefan Tudyka, Head of Sales for ExOne GmbH. “ExOne identified these markets for their robust foundry operations so through relationships with HASMAK, Kuttner and BL Metal, the Company can better serve local customers with the resources and knowledge to meet their unique business needs.”

The ExOne Company was founded in 2005 as a spinoff of Extrude Hone Corporation, which for more than 40 years has been a developer and supplier of nontraditional machining processes and automated systems. They provide technology for sand printing, metal and glass printing, and laser machining.
