Hawk 3D Proto ceases operations, CEO moves on to new opportunities

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Hawk 3D Proto, a young though quite popular 3D product resellers in the UK, has closed its doors. We did not see that coming, as the company seemed to be one of the most active in the UK scene. Although we often met and spoke with Ben at shows, and very much appreciated his approach to the market, we regret that we never had the opportunity to actively collaborate with Hawk 3D and help the company further promote its brand and products.

“This is a very important announcement regarding my company, Hawk 3D Proto – founder and CEO Ben Hawksworth said in a statement accompanying a recent YouTube video (see above) – before I get into the finer details, I have to get the serious stuff out of the way as I want to be honest about this. So here goes, It is with great sadness that I will be closing my 3D Printing business very soon, along with my showroom. It has been an amazing 6 years of business, I have had so many fantastic suppliers both past and present, I would like to thank you all for all of your support. We have been featured in national newspapers, blogs, videos and more! I want to thank each and everyone of you, who has interacted with me in person, via social media, for watching these videos and by commenting on what we do on Twitter for example. I really hope that this will continue, this is not the end, this is a new start of a fantastic and wonderful journey that I hope you will follow me on! Don’t worry though, there will be more videos and vlogs to come, very soon! Hope you like this vlog and thanks for watching!”
