Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Establishes Commercial Operation in Romania

Business Transfer from Local Distribution Partner Enables the Formation of Bucharest Facility

11 October 2016
Hexagon AB has completed the transfer of the metrology services business of MICRO-TOP Consulting, Engineering & Service S.R.L. to Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. 

Founded in 1991, MICRO-TOP offers complete solutions in metrology from consultancy, equipment supply and a variety of services. Based in the Romanian capital, Bucharest, the company employs 24 people and operates an ISO17025 accredited calibration laboratory. MICRO-TOP has been selling and supporting Hexagon equipment for over twenty years and holds authorised dealer status.

The transaction will facilitate the foundation of a Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operation at the MICRO-TOP premises in Bucharest, with the company’s employees joining the Hexagon team. The new Precision Centre will continue to offer sales and support for the complete portfolio of Hexagon metrology and manufacturing technology. MICRO-TOP will continue to share the site, operating as an independent entity to honour existing warranties on non-Hexagon equipment.

“Providing local services and support for our customers is a top priority for our company,” said Norbert Hanke, President and CEO of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “MICRO-TOP has been a trusted partner of ours for a number of years now, and we are delighted to bring their expertise and knowledge of the Romanian market on board as we open our first commercial operation and premises in the country.”

Hexagon and MICRO-TOP will also exhibit together in Hall A, Booth B12 at TIB Bucharest, the Bucharest International Trade Fair, which runs from 12 to 15 October 2016 at the ROMEXPO Centre.
