Zeiss Group (Oberkochen, Germany) is acquiring a majority stake in Bosello High Technology (Cassano Magnago, Italy), a provider of industrial X-ray products. For Zeiss, access to Bosello’s technology represents a further step in the process of evolving into a one-stop provider of non-destructive measuring and inspection technology. The shared goal is to strengthen in-line computed tomography (CT) in the production environment, a technology that increases the level of quality in the inspection of aluminum cast parts. The initial customer focus will be on the automotive industry.

“We are delighted to welcome this highly reputable company along with its management and employees as part of the Zeiss Group. Together, through the ongoing development of the entire portfolio, we aim to focus even more on meeting individual customer needs in the future,” says Dr. Jochen Peter, designated member of the Executive Board of Carl Zeiss AG and head of the Industrial Metrology business group.

Moving forward, the employees at Bosello’s site near Milan, Italy, will be part of the Zeiss X-ray network and will play a key role in further expanding the business. For Zeiss, this is a key enhancement to the non-destructive measuring and inspection global strategy.

Subject to the approval of EU competition authorities, the agreement is expected to come into effect in January 2018.
