Creaform has received the 2010 Quebec Aerospace Association (AQA) Company of the Year Award.
Of the four finalists, Creaform distinguished itself with strong financial management and strategic planning, continuous improvement, leadership in human resources management, dedication to the environment, corporate citizenship and involvement with the AQA.
"We are absolutely thrilled and honored to receive this award,” says Stéphane Galibois, director, Canada Technology Sales and Strategic Accounts for North America. “The 3 other contenders are amazing companies, and it was certainly not an easy pick for the jury.”
Aerospace clients such as Bombardier, EADS, Pratt & Whitney, Embraer, Aircelle, Boeing, NASA, Héroux-Devtek and Cessna use technologies developed by Creaform.
Creaform has also announced the sale of its 1500th Handyscan 3D unit, a MAXscan laser scanner for large parts, to car manufacturer Daimler Automotive Co. in China.
Daimler Automotive will use the MAXscan to quality control sheet metal and passenger compartments, execute gap and flush analysis, and check parts. The automaker also expanded its suite of quality control instruments with a HandyPROBE portable optical CMM, which will be used to inspect jigs and fixtures.
“This sale represents a new breakthrough for us in what is now the largest auto market in the world,” says President Charles Mony. “We always strive to push off the limits of these technologies, and I think that the release of our new MetraSCAN optical CMM 3D scanner and the award we just received for 2010 AQA Company of the Year are strong proofs of that.”
