Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ZEISS, a manufacturer of metrology solutions and technology in the field of optics and optoelectronics, has broken ground on construction of a new facility outside of Detroit.

Built for the Industrial Quality and Research (IQR) segment of ZEISS — Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology LLC in the U.S. — the facility will consolidate four buildings in Michigan into one location. It will span over 82,800 sq ft and contain a customer demonstration area offering training, support, and metrology services, while also containing fixture system production and assembly.

Almost 170 employees will provide a range of dimensional metrology, inspection equipment, and services for industries including medical, automotive, aerospace, and machine tooling. The center will also offer aftermarket sales support and software help desk services.

“We are investing over $45 million in the Detroit metro region to strengthen and increase our engagement in this global automotive and smart factory hot spot,” said Jochen Peter, member of the executive board of the ZEISS Group and head of the industrial quality and research segment.
