Creaform Expands its Presence in Asia, Europe and North America

June 24, 2008

Creaform, developer and manufacturer of the Handyscan 3DTM product line of laser scanners, announced today the completion of its 2008 business development plan in Asia with the official incorporation of its Japanese office, Creaform Japan. Additionally, the company announced the opening of its European Calibration Center in France.

These events take place just a few months after the incorporation of its Chinese subsidiary, Creaform Shanghai, and the opening of a new Montréal office.

“Creaform is committed to taking its operations to the next level and building on the strong reputation that our company enjoys in the world of 3D technology and solutions,” said Charles Mony, president of Creaform. “Our strategic presence in these important markets reflects the interest that our solutions have attracted worldwide.”

Asian Expansion
Since 2005, Creaform has consistently demonstrated its market value and penetration into the Asian market with its acclaimed Handyscan 3D product line. With the incorporation of the Shanghai and Yokohama offices, Creaform now has both a market and geographical advantage to continue its international growth, capitalizing on the economically-emergent markets of the past few years.

European Support
To better serve its growing European clientele, Creaform’s new Calibration Center allows Handyscan 3D laser scanner customers in the EMEA geographical area to have their scanners calibrated or serviced.

North American Growth
Earlier this year, Creaform also inaugurated a service office in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This new entity enables Creaform to provide scanning, metrology and inspection, CAD and reverse engineering services to its Canadian-based clients.
