Faro Acquires Laser-Tracker Maker

Tuesday, February 19, 2002
 
Faro Technologies, Inc., Lake Mary, FL, which provides computer-aided-manufacturing software and products, has acquired SpatialMetrix Corp. (SMX), Kennett Square, PA, a supplier of laser trackers, metrology software and contract inspection services. SMX recently developed a new laser-tracker, which is of particular interest to Faro officials. “The laser tracker is a high-accuracy portable 3D measurement technology with a range of more than 100 feet,” explained Simon Raab, Faro president and CEO. “When combined with Faro’s conventional control station with FaroArm, it results in a portable product line capable of handling virtually any manufacturing measurement challenge.” In 2001, SMX realized 75 percent of its sales within the United States. With the acquisition, Faro expects increased sales of SMX products and services on the world market through Faro’s existing sales channels in Europe and Asia.
