“We are very pleased with this collaboration between Hortal 3D and Prodways in Israel,” says Danny Kaplan, a board member of Hortal 3D. “There is very strong demand from our customers to have a single service provider who can address all the issues involved in additive manufacturing.”
These new agreements enable Prodways to promote and market their full range of 3D printing solutions in Turkey and in Israel; the deals will prove important to making the company a key player in the 3D printing sector.
“BTech Innovation is delighted to have teamed up with Prodways, a growing force in 3D printing that is able to offer cutting edge technology aligned with a full range of manufacturing solutions,” says Aktaş. “We are convinced that the solutions on offer will enable us to become a front runner in markets where we currently operate, particularly in the medical field. Our customers require high quality services based on state of the art technology and proven expertise in 3D Printing.”
The companies say the full distribution network will gradually become operational. Prodways also announced that the first sales of 3D printers – the ProMaker L7000 and ProMaker V6000 – have just been completed by their Polish distributor. The machines, sold for approximately €700,000, represent a demonstration of Prodways’ ambitious growth strategy.
Group Gorgé operates in the fields of Smart Safety Systems, Protection in Nuclear Environments, Industrial Projects and Services and now 3D Printing via Prodways.
For the calendar year 2014, Group Gorgé reported revenues of €223.3 million generated by the work of 1,370 employees and the company’s operations in more than ten countries.
Groupe Gorgé entered the 3D printing sector with the strategic acquisition in late 2013 of Prodways, a company developed by Doctor André-Luc Allanic.
Prodways is developing a complete range of production machines called “ProMakers” which are based on the company’s MOVINGLight technology and offers complete 3D printing solutions to industrial customers in the dental and biomedical fields through a group of tailored “machine-material” combinations aimed at each application.
