Zeiss Opens Facility in India

The facility in Bangalore is the company's fourth in that country.

Carl Zeiss has opened a new assembly and demonstration center for industrial metrology in Bangalore, India. The ability to manufacture coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) directly on site will help the company react more quickly to customer needs and expand its position in the market, says Dr. Rainer Ohnheiser, president and CEO of Carl Zeiss Industrial Measuring Technology. Services at the center, the company’s fourth in that country, will include demos, training, contact programming, contract measurements and a service hotline.
Industrial Metrology has been active in India since 1975. After entering the market through a coope- ration with Empire Machine Tools, the first sales office opened in Bangalore in 1997, followed by three tech centers in Bangalore (2008), Pune (2010) and Chennai (2012). Additional Carl Zeiss business groups, including Vision Care, Medical Technology and Microscopy, are also present at this new site.
