The company has worked with the Federal Government for many years supplying small and large CNC machines. The company then took it a step further to help supply advanced equipment, including HIP systems from Quintus and now the metal AM systems from SLM Solutions, with the added benefit of having a single point of contact for the entire process.

Many builders have come to us to help them get through the red tape of the larger Federal Facilities along with the very difficult job of managing a Federal project. Many CIP Offices have come to us to make sure the full scope is handled properly. Our end game and mission is to hand the machine and process to the Artisan completely ready to go and productive.

“This is a defining moment for both organizations,” added Garett Purdon and Graham Boyd from Nikon SLM Solutions. “We are eager to see how our combined efforts with Hartech Group will support the complex and critical missions of the United States’ defense and energy sectors.”
