XJet Ltd, Rehovot, Israel, has appointed Andy Middleton to the newly created role of Business Director for Central Europe. This position is part of a growth strategy for the company wherein the business infrastructure, including its global sales network, is expanded.
“Having worked with Andy previously at Objet and seeing his stellar work at Stratasys, we’re excited to have him on the team,” stated Dror Danai, Chief Business Officer.
XJet selected Middleton on the basis of his go-to-market experience, most recently as Executive VP at Stratasys, a role in which he managed the company’s European business. With nearly thirty years in executive positions in the print and Additive Manufacturing industries, he is noted as having a record for building sustainable business growth.
“The core technologies behind XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting AM are phenomenal, resulting in groundbreaking material and part properties,” added Middleton. “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.”
“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,” he continued. “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.”
