Stratasys Asia Pacific, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a manufacturer of 3D printers and materials for personal use, prototyping and production, is proud to announce that Stratasys 3D printing technologies have gone mainstream and entered the office automation solution offerings in China, helping more businesses to streamline concept modeling and design validation processes. To support the increasing opportunities in this area, Stratasys has appointed Shanghai Aurora Office Automation, a subsidiary of The Aurora Group, one of China's largest electronics and office supply retailers, as the master distributor for its entry-level "Idea Series" of 3D printers in China.

The partnership will focus on the sale and provision of local support and services for Stratasys' entry-level 3D printer series, the "Idea Series," which includes Mojo, uPrint SE and uPrint SE Plus.

"China is one of the fastest growing markets in the Asia Pacific region.  The demand for 3D printing has been strong. The Chinese government's plan to promote 3D printing technologies to boost its manufacturing power and drive high value-adding manufacturing effort has helped increase industry and general awareness in the value of 3D printing," said Jonathan Jaglom, General Manager of Asia Pacific & Japan from Stratasys AP. "As 3D printing goes mainstream, we have adopted the strategy to make our technology more assessable to customers. Leveraging the vast network of the Aurora Group is our big step."
