Leica Geosystems Signs Distribution Contract with Partner in Eastern Europe

15 September 2005

Leica Geosystems announces the signing of a distribution contract with NMS, s.r.o. from Bratislava, Slovakia. NMS will distribute products from the Metrology Division of Leica Geosystems, including the Leica Laser Tracker, Leica T-Probe, Leica T-Scan and Metrolog XG for Leica, in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Says Igor Lengyel, NMS Sales Manager: “We are proud to be representing Leica Geosystems and its products on this important market with extremely healthy growth potential. We have already completed the sale of the first Leica T-Probe system in Slovenia to Oprema Ravne d.o.o., an automotive tool-building company situated in the north of Slovenia in Ravne na Koroskem.

In addition, we have sold a Leica Laser Tracker LTD 600 to Tigep, a company working in the precision machine industry, based in Tiszakecske in central Hungary. The newest important project is an all-in-one solution consisting of a Leica Laser Tracker LTD700 with a Leica T -Probe and a Leica T-Scan delivered to the prototype department of SKODA Auto a.s. in Mladá Boleslav, the leading car manufacturer in Eastern Europe. We aim to establish Leica Geosystems as the purveyor of cutting-edge portable CMM solutions with a service and support network that is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. The distribution agreement we signed with Leica Geosystems in December 2004 is a win-win situation for all parties involved.”

Continues Nik Suter, a European Dealer Manager from the Metrology Division of Leica Geosystems: “NMS specializes in the sales of 3D optical digitalization equipment and inspection and reverse engineering software to automotive companies and automotive industrial suppliers, plastics producers, electro-technical component manufacturers, foundries, tool makers and industrial design companies, all of which are potential Leica Geosystems customers. The cooperation with NMS will enable us to further establish ourselves on the Central/Eastern European market, offering our customers quality portable CMM solutions coupled with a local dealer and support network.”
