(Marposs: Bentivoglio, Italy and Auburn Hills, Michigan) -- Marposs, a world leader in measurement, inspection, and test technologies, has acquired Jenoptik’s (Jena, Germany) nonoptical-process measuring technology business for grinding machines, formerly known as Movomatic. With this acquisition, Marposs is taking over the facilities, management, and employees at the main site in Peseux, Switzerland, as well as in Ratingen and Ludwigsburg, Germany, ensuring continuity of service and support levels.
