Velo3D, Inc., a metal additive manufacturing technology company, and Hartech Group, an advanced technology equipment supplier for the U.S. federal government, set up a partnership to distribute Velo3D’s technology to government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD). The partnership makes Hartech Group a preferred distributor for the federal government for Velo3D. Together, the companies will deliver full-service project execution for the sale, installation and onboarding of Velo3D’s advanced metal additive manufacturing solution.
“Our team has deep experience delivering solutions to customers in the federal government and we know what it takes to not only supply the piece of technology, but also supply everything needed to make the equipment fully operable to the DoD end user,” says Gary Bredael, Hartech Group director of Additive Manufacturing. “We have chosen Velo3D and its end-to-end solution for our federal government customers interested in acquiring advanced additive manufacturing technology due to the company’s very high quality and reputation. We will use our top ratings with the federal government to make sure we supply a full Velo3D solution.”
Hartech Group exclusively works with federal government customers and has extensive experience working with indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ), general services administration (GSA) contracts, blanket purchase agreements (BPA) contracts, and DLAA and local contracting. Customers who purchase Velo3D Sapphire printers, and their accompanying software, from Hartech Group will enjoy a simplified procurement process, including setup, training and ongoing support, so customers can focus on building the parts they need.
“It’s no secret that the federal government can be slow-moving and difficult to navigate for new-comers, but Hartech’s background and capabilities will help us grow our presence with these customers so they can leverage the benefits of advanced additive manufacturing,” says Benny Buller, Velo3D CEO and founder. “In the short time that we’ve officially partnered together, there has already been extensive interest from Hartech’s contacts in the federal government—and we’re just getting started.”
Hartech Group decided to work with Velo3D because its technology is suited for complex DoD requirements, especially in the area of supply chain management.
