26th January 2023 – Vienna, Austria / Bangalore, India. Lithoz GmbH, world market and technology leader in ceramic 3D printers and materials, has announced its sales partnership agreement with Wendt (India) Ltd., strategically extending operations to the subcontinent’s fast growing 3D printing market. The cooperation with WIL, who are internationally reputed in the field of super abrasive grinding wheels and machines, will enable both companies to further expand and develop their business in India.

Founded in 1983, Wendt (India) Ltd has operated as a joint venture between German Wendt GmbH and Carborundum Universal Ltd (CUMI) and is ranked among the Top 25 Most Successful Indo-German Joint Ventures by the IGCC. The new partnership was inaugurated at IMTEX (19 – 25 Jan 2023), India’s main event for the metal cutting industry, where the Lithoz CeraFab System S65 industry printer had its market premiere operating live at the WIL booth.

With Lithoz bases in Austria, the USA and China, this latest partnership in India will ensure a much deeper understanding of the market and its specific needs to lay the solid foundation for the strategic business development.

Dr. Johannes Homa, Lithoz CEO, about the new partnership: “To successfully enter an important market like India, we are fully aware of the importance of choosing the best sales partner. We are very happy and excited to be working with the Wendt / Murugappa group in India and look forward to implementing their vast experience and business network in the field of machinery and precision components into our own work. As two market leaders joining forces, we are fully convinced that by uniting our expertise we will make fast progress in establishing ceramic 3D printing as an alternative production technology, strongly adding value in both fields.”

A combination of core values, such as the importance of the team behind the company and a strong emphasis on endurance and accuracy, has over the years strengthened Lithoz’s overall promise of always delivering quality equal or even superior compared to traditional manufacturing methods and to proactively driving forward their partner’s innovation.

In the sense of this important promise, and with all three technologies offered in their portfolio - market-leading LCM (Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing), LIS (Laser-Induced Slipcasting) and the recently added LSD (Layer-wise Slurry Deposition), the new sales partnership with Wendt (India) Ltd as experienced market leaders has created an excellent opportunity for both companies to firmly establish ceramic 3D printing in India.
