Creaform announced that it is expanding its California presence with a new office in Irvine. With this relocation, the company continues its global market expansion strategy.

Headquartered in Lévis, Quebec, Creaform first opened a Costa Mesa, California, office in 2015. Now the company is moving to a 3,000-square-foot office building in Irvine that allows for further expansion as the company grows. Local staff have been in place since mid-September 2018 and will support the increasing demand for dimensional metrology technologies and services in the region, as the company puts it.

“The United States has been a focal point for Creaform from the beginning. More recently, we have seen a growing interest in what our technologies bring to the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries from coast to coast,” says Jarrod Schmidt, national sales manager for Creaform USA. “California is a global hub for technological innovation. Our new location offers great customer outreach opportunities for our team across the United States, while complementing our corporate headquarter’s eastern presence. Creaform now will be able to more effectively provide support and expertise attuned to each region’s unique manufacturing and quality control challenges.”

The new facility also will incorporate an expanded industrial robot calibration service, which improves a customer’s robot’s absolute accuracy while reducing downtime. “Along with a local after-sales service department, expanded service capabilities and the addition of a large-size measurement laboratory, Creaform will have the latest technology and knowhow to carry out calibration and metrology services for its U.S. customer base,” says David Gagné, division vice president of after-sales and metrology. “Our new local regional office will allow us to increase customer contact without the inconveniences of distance and time zone differences, while providing a central hub for metrology services across the western United States.”

This latest expansion is in line with Creaform’s market growth strategy. Over the past two years, it has opened local offices in Brazil, Italy, Singapore and Spain.
