Rochester, NY-Quality Vision International Inc. (QVI), a vision metrology company, broke ground on April 12 for a new facility that will be the headquarters for its Kotem Technologies division and strengthen customer support for Central Europe. The 600 square-meter technical center in Budaƶrs, Hungary, is slated to open in the first quarter of 2007.

Founded in 1991, Kotem Technologies develops Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing and fitting software for precision metrology, widely used on video measuring systems and a broad variety of coordinate measuring machines.
