New offices and resources will provide greater and localized support for the country’s partners and customers
Creaform, the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, today announced that it has new offices in Milan and resources to cater the ever-growing demand of its local clients and partners in Italy, the company’s third largest European market.
The first Account Executive and Application Engineer are already in place serving local customers. In response to high market demand, more resources will join in the following months to form a complete team. Creaform’s local offices will also provide metrology services across all segments and regions in Italy. Dedicated product marketing initiatives, aligned with the distinct needs of the Italian market, including in the automotive and other manufacturing sectors, will also be carried out over the next several months.
This opening is part of the company’s worldwide expansion plan as the logical continuity of Creaform’s sustained growth and market demand. This also follows the recent and successful openings of Creaform’s offices in Brazil, Korea and Singapore.
“The market demand in EMEA has near doubled since the launch of the new HandySCAN 3D and Go!SCAN 3D in 2014. This trend is well-supported again this year with the launch of our new HandyPROBE and MetraSCAN 3D,” explained Pierre-Hugues Allard. “The overall market in Italy represents a tremendous opportunity for our metrology and 3D measurement solutions. We are poised to bring our innovation and expertise so that manufacturers can overcome their manufacturing and quality control challenges—and remain competitive on a global scale.”
