Mr Jaglom thanked Fasotec, for their years of commitment while in the partnership, which helped create new market opportunities.

Mr Eric Goguy, CEO & President of Stratasys Japan said: “By exercising the option under the JV agreement and acquiring full ownership of Fasotec, we will complete a smooth transition to a wholly owned subsidiary committed to continuing to provide best-in-class 3D printing solutions, services and technologies that are suitable for the Japan market."
