Hexagon AB has completed the acquisition of FASys Industrie-EDV-Systeme GmbH, a German system integration specialist and provider of software and hardware solutions for production-oriented tasks. FASys has an established working relationship with the Hexagon-owned CAD/CAM specialist Vero Software, and the acquisition enhances Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s product offering for the production manufacturing sector.

Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Cologne, FASys is a vendor of manufacturing software solutions, including DIN 4000/4003-based tool and resource management, and the integration of presetting and CNC machines (DNC).

“In looking to expand our technology portfolio beyond CAM, the acquisition of FASys is a very important step,” says Steve Sivitter, CEO at Vero Software. “The company brings great technology and a wealth of manufacturing experience to Vero Software. We’ve been collaborating with FASys for some years, so it’s exciting to help the team there expand their global reach and provide our existing customers with more technology to improve productivity.”
