Zeiss To Acquire Capture 3D
Zeiss has announced plans to acquire Capture 3D, a company specializing in GOM technology for various industries.
Zeiss plans to acquire Capture 3D in a move to expand its U.S. coverage for the industrial quality and research segment. Headquartered in Santa Ana, California, Capture 3D is a partner for GOM 3D non-contact measuring solutions.
“We are pleased to bring the Capture 3D team and their know-how into the Zeiss Group,” states Dr. Jochen Peter, member of the Zeiss Group Executive Board responsible for the Industrial Quality & Research segment. “After the acquisition of GOM two years ago, we will now also combine our strategic forces in the important U.S. market to provide customers with best-in-class measuring solutions from one source.”
“We look forward to being a part of Zeiss to combine our efforts in serving our customers with best-in-class measuring solutions and services,” adds Richard White, CEO of Capture 3D. “Being part of the Zeiss family will open up new opportunities for the Capture 3D team and our customers in the future.”
Once the transaction is complete, Capture 3D will become part of the Industrial Quality Solutions strategic business unit within the Zeiss Industrial Quality & Research segment. Subject to approval by the regulatory authorities, the transaction is due to be finalized in summer 2021. Both sides have agreed not to disclose the financial details of this transaction.
