Zeiss plans to expand its national coverage in the US for its Industrial Quality & Research segment by acquiring Capture 3D. Headquartered in Santa Ana, California, Capture 3D is the leading US partner for GOM 3D non-contact measuring solutions. With this acquisition customers will benefit from a seamless integrated experience to get the best measuring solutions for their specific tasks.
“We are pleased to bring the Capture 3D team and their know-how into the Zeiss Group,” states Dr. Jochen Peter, member of the Zeiss Group Executive Board responsible for the Industrial Quality & Research segment. “After the acquisition of GOM two years ago, we will now also combine our strategic forces in the important US market to provide customers with best-in-class measuring solutions from one source.”
“We look forward to being a part of Zeiss to combine our efforts in serving our customers with the best in class measuring solutions and services,” adds Richard White, CEO of Capture 3D. “Being part of the Zeiss Family will open up new opportunities for the Capture 3D team and our customers in the future.”
“Having such a talented team with expert industry knowledge and a passion for 3D metrology is important,” states Michael Kirchner, Head of Zeiss Industrial Quality Solutions in the US. “This will expand the Zeiss support network for our customers.”
Once the transaction is complete, Capture 3D will become part of the Industrial Quality Solutions strategic business unit within the Zeiss Industrial Quality & Research segment (revenue in 2019/20: 1.640 billion euros). Subject to approval by the regulatory authorities, the transaction is due to be finalized in summer 2021. Both sides have agreed not to disclose the financial details of this transaction.
