We are excited about the opportunity to leverage one of the broadest portfolios of vision-based measuring solutions, along with one of the most well-known brand names, in order to enhance our existing market position.”
“This is a great strategic move for Baty; I am excited about what we can now achieve from within the Bowers organisation. Both companies are committed to providing the highest levels of product quality, customer service and technical expertise”, commented Geoff Jackson, Managing Director of Baty International. “I am sure the combined teams will be a powerful force in the Metrology market place.”
