Following the recent acquisition of Belgian metrology company, Metris, by Nikon, the corporate name of Metris has been changed into Nikon Metrology NV.
"We are delighted to be able to trade under the flag of the powerful Nikon brand, facilitating and accelerating the global rollout of our optical metrology revolution," says Bart Van Coppenolle, founder of Metris and now CEO of Nikon Metrology.
"We look forward to further investment in product development and customer support, leveraging the strength of a strong international technology group. Together, we will strengthen our leadership position as an optical metrology innovator."
The combined product portfolios include Nikon's vision measuring systems which complement the Metris 3D optical and mechanical metrology systems.
Nikon Metrology showed its combined product range for the first time at the European Productronica 09 trade show in Munich, Germany (Nov. 10-13).
