Integration of the Leica Geosystems Metrology Division into Hexagon Metrology

17 January 2006

The recent entry of Leica Geosystems into the Hexagon group has given the go-ahead to a plan intended to welcome the Metrology Division of Leica Geosystems as an additional Business Line within the present Hexagon Metrology organization.

The Metrology Division of Leica Geosystems, with headquarters in Unterentfelden, Switzerland, is a world leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of portable measuring solutions based on laser technology, namely Leica Laser Trackers and Industrial Theodolites & Total Stations.

Leica Geosystems’ Metrology products are widely employed in the automotive, aerospace and general industry. They are ideally suitable for metrology applications on large-sized components, as aerospace parts, requiring a combination of accurate as well as portable and easy-to-use measuring equipment.

Mr. Duncan Redgewell (formerly VP and Sales Manager Europe) has been newly appointed General Manager of the newborn Business Line.

Mr. Redgewell says: “We are maintaining an absolute commitment to product excellence and superior support. The integration of our sales and distribution network into Hexagon Metrology will create competitive synergies turning into benefits for our customers, that can rely on the usual quality of our products and services, now further enhanced by an organization having a strong high-tech metrology core worldwide”.

“Along with Hexagon Metrology, we’ll maintain a steady focus on providing superior industrial metrology products while ensuring a deeper market penetration that enables us to generate additional sales volume and meeting specific manufacturing requirements of our customers more effectively,” expands Mr. Redgewell.

The Leica Laser Trackers and the Industrial Theodolites & Total Stations complement the existing portable measurement solutions portfolio of Hexagon Metrology that already includes a wide range of articulated arms, dedicated application solutions, software and services, meeting all requirements of this rapidly growing market segment.

Hexagon Metrology is now the undisputed leader in the dimensional metrology sector as to range completeness, technological level of the products, customer support and market coverage.
