Industry News: Parlec Inc. and Mahr GmbH Announce Partnership

HANOVER, GERMANY-Parlec Inc., headquartered in Fairport, NY, and Mahr GmbH, headquartered in Göttingen, Germany, announce a bilateral partnership agreement to market and sell each other’s measurement tool and inspection products. Products covered under the agreement are Parlec’s P1500 and P2500 Presetters and Mahr’s MarVision Tool Inspector lines. Mahr will market and sell these goods in Europe under the name MarPreset. In turn, Parlec will incorporate Mahr tool measurement products into its product portfolio and market them in North America. In addition, the companies will cooperate on future technology development to expand each of their respective product offerings.

The shared product lines are expected to lead to additional collaborative efforts including cobranded products and technology-sharing initiatives. Mahr and Parlec have agreed to share technologies for the continued technical advancement of both companies’ current product lines, as well as for the development of entirely new solutions in tool and component measurement.

According to Drug Woods, president of Parlec International, “With this strategic partnership, we’re, in effect, creating a new global leader in precision optical tooling metrology. Working together with Mahr, we can offer a comprehensive approach to tool measurement technology across a wide spectrum of applications and markets.”

Thomas Keidel, chairman of the Mahr Group’s board of directors, says, “Parlec’s tool presetting products are an excellent addition to our product portfolio. We can now offer our customers not only top-quality tool measurement, but also the very best in presetting. This means the customer has the advantage of dealing with a single supplier for both groups of equipment.
