Markforged, a leading manufacturer of metal and carbon fiber 3D printers, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider, announced a partnership to accelerate the availability of industrial additive manufacturing technologies to the U.S. Government. Carahsoft will serve as Markforged’s master government aggregator and distributor, making the company’s 3dprinters available to Federal agencies and reseller partners through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts.
“For decades, Federal agencies have used lengthy and complex supply chains to send new or replacement parts to the field,” said Brian Houle, Markforged Vice President of Global Channel Sales.
“Being able to produce tools and parts independent of existing supply chains gives field teams the ability to adapt to changing mission needs,” said Lacey Wean, Manager of the Markforged team at Carahsoft.
Markforged’s software, hardware and services are available immediately through Carahsoft’s SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B.
