Hexagon AB, a provider of design, measurement and visualization technologies has acquired Vero Software, according to the company.
Vero Software is a global CAM software company, with brands such as Alpacam, Cabinet Vision, Edgecam, Radan, VISI, SURFCAM and WorkNC. Each of these platforms aid the design and manufacturing process with solutions for programming and controlling machine tools. It has offices in the U.S., U.K, Germany, Italy, France, Japan and India.
This acuisition will allow Hexagon to expand its software offerings, and close the gap of making data fully actionable with newly developed MMS (metrology planning software) to include CAM.
The consolidation of Vero will conclude in August, a company press release states, and the turnover for 2013 was approximately 80 million Euro (108 million USD).
“Together with its unique suite of manufacturing software solutions, Vero Software has the expertise, knowledge and resources to deliver even higher levels of productivity to our customers,” said Ola Rollén, president and CEO at Hexagon. “Leveraging our global footprint, the synergies from our combined technologies will advance our strategy, supporting the growing need to integrate all data and processes across the manufacturing lifecycle.”
