HP Inc. and Deloitte Consulting LLP announced an alliance to help accelerate the digital transformation of the global manufacturing industry. The two companies will collaborate on the implementation of HP’s 3D-printing systems in large-scale manufacturing environments, applying their digital operations experience to help enterprises accelerate product design and production, create more flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and enhance efficiency across the manufacturing life cycle.

The alliance will combine HP’s Jet Fusion 3D-printing solutions and tools with Deloitte’s manufacturing relationships, digital operations experience and proven success in supply-chain transformation for some of the world’s largest companies. It will begin in the U.S. and expand to other geographies.

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us. No sector of the global economy is undergoing more radical transformation than the $12 trillion manufacturing market,” said Dion Weisler, president and CEO of HP Inc. “Companies investing in digital reinvention are poised to outpace their peers.”
