(FARO, Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology: Chicago) -- FARO Technologies Inc. and Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology have launched the Innovative Solutions Network, a marketing, sales, and support collaboration in North America. Through the network, these two leaders in metrology will provide a broader product solutions offering, including both traditional and portable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). From the simplest to the most complex metrology measurements, the Innovative Solutions Network will offer customers access to more patented technologies, focused applications, and customer support programs and resources.

“The creation of the Innovative Solutions Network will allow us to better serve our customers by providing them with a total metrology solution,” says David Morse, senior vice president and managing director of the Americas for FARO. “The technologies offered by both companies are among the most advanced equipment available today, and I am excited to see two world-class companies like FARO and Carl Zeiss create such a comprehensive metrology solution.”

For years, customers have benefited from the support and training programs offered by both companies, along with the extensive knowledge and experience that comes with more than 120 combined years of metrology development. Through the Innovative Solutions Network, individuals interested in implementing a metrology solution will now have access to expert resources from both FARO and Carl Zeiss.

“We are pleased to work with FARO in the launch of the Innovative Solutions Network,” says Greg Lee, president of Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology. “Like us, their strength is in developing the key technologies needed to give customers the best solution. We believe it to be a great benefit to our existing customer base as well as for those who are considering a full metrology solution.”
