Nikon Metrology has announced that ASF Metrology intends to acquire Nikon Metrology’s coordinate measuring machines (CMM) business. The closing of the transaction is expected to take place in about 2 months.
Nikon Metrology’s CMM activities, with offices in Belgium, France, Germany, the UK and the USA, represent approx. 25 % of the total Nikon Metrology worldwide consolidated turnover. Coordinate measuring machines (CMM) are used in sectors where accurate dimensions and quality control are crucial, such as aerospace, automotive and medical implants.
Upon closing the transaction, all CMM production, development, sales and service activities, including the CAMIO software, will be transferred to ASF Metrology, under the ownership and management of Angelo Muscarella, who has a long and proven track record in metrology and especially the CMM business. Nikon Metrology will continue to serve a number of selected accounts as part of a strategic marketing partnership where both companies will promote each other’s products and services. All employees mainly dedicated to the CMM business, a crucial asset to the knowhow of the company, are intended to transfer to ASF Metrology.
Both companies will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition with suppliers, customers and resellers.
Further details of the agreement were not disclosed.
