AICON acquires majority share in Breuckmann GmbH


Monday 3rd September 2012: Today, it is confirmed that Aicon have taken over a majority shareholding in Breuckmann GmbH. This integration of two leading players in the field of 3D Scanning, 3D Measurement and 3D Inspection offers many synergies. AICON is market leader in the field of photogrammetry and Breuckmann is a world leading manufacturer of high-value optical systems for three-dimensional non-contact measurement, digitization and inspection. AICON and Breuckmann have worked in very close collaboration since 1995. The merging of the two companies upholds the successful companies’ development and offers a clear competitive advantage. Breuckmann’s product range ideally complements the AICON portfolio, so AICON now operates in the market as a full-range supplier of 3D metrology systems. Concurrent Design Group (CDG) represents both Breuckmann and Aicon products in the UK. For further information please contact:- Grant Cameron, CDG, Concurrent Design Group, Tel. 01420 88645,
