XJet Ltd., has announced today the appointment of respected industry leader Andy Middleton as Business Director for Central Europe, a new role at XJet. The announcement comes in a wave of growth for XJet as the business ramps up its infrastructure, with a particular emphasis on its global sales network.
According to Middleton his interest in the new role lies in the innovation XJet demonstrates: “The core technologies behind XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting AM are phenomenal, resulting in groundbreaking material and part properties. This is what it’s all about for customers, essential for high performance ceramics and metal, so I’m excited by the journey XJet is taking.”
With nearly thirty years in executive positions in the print and additive manufacturing industries, Middleton has a record for building sustainable business growth. Reinforced by his most recent role as Executive Vice President at Stratasys, managing the company’s business in Europe, he also brings a wealth of go-to-market experience to the role.
“The technical ceramics market is close to tipping point with AM technology, so it’s imperative that highly certified industries such as MedTech, aerospace and energy – that use so many of these materials – understand the potential of XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology. A huge amount of compliance is required for these high performing engineering materials, and it’s my opinion XJet is uniquely capable of meeting those criteria with a scalable solution,” states Middleton.
