Hoffman Estates, Ill. – Renishaw has purchased the business of Advanced Consulting & Engineering Inc. (ACE), a Rochester Hills, Mich.-based supplier of dimensional measurement products and services.
The acquisition will help support Renishaw’s sales of coordinate measuring machine (CMM) probing systems and Equator gauges in the USA.
For more than 15 years ACE – an A2LA-accredited lab – has provided a range of in-house and on-site measurement services to its customers including contract inspection, CMM fixture design, machine retrofits, CMM programming, training, and full turnkey solutions from concept to completion. Since 2011 the company has distributed Renishaw CMM and gauging products.
"As Renishaw continues to focus on supplying end-user metrology solutions, including CMM retrofits and installations of our Equator gauge, the specialized programming and applications knowledge of the ACE team will be particularly valuable,” says Leo Somerville, president of Renishaw Inc.
