HP Inc (HP) has announced it's expanding the reach of its 3D printing business with the introduction of its Partner First 3D Printing Specialisation programme.

The new programme is comprised of more than 30 of HP's existing partners. Each has undergone extensive training and certification so they can offer the company's full suite of 3D printing products and services to customers looking to super-charge their capabilities in this area.

At the moment, the reseller programme will be focused on the UK and European markets, with a key focus on helping manufacturing solutions providers quickly deploy HP's 3D printing solutions to their customers.

HP also said it would also help partners to offer more value-added services to existing customers, including new applications for 3D printing and faster response times with improved service quality.

"Building on our experience of more than 500,000 Multi Jet Fusion-produced parts, we are now scaling our 3D printing business to the next level," said Stephen Nigro, president of 3D Printing at HP.

"Today we are expanding our solutions availability through new resellers and service bureau partners, opening new experiential facilities for customers and partners, and widening our open 3D printing materials ecosystem.

"We are honored that industry-leading companies such as BMW, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Nike and dozens more are looking to the innovations and economics delivered by HP and our partners to help reinvent their businesses for the digital manufacturing revolution."
