MINNEAPOLIS, April 17-Laser Design Inc., supplier of 3-D laser scanners, has signed a distribution agreement with Borbolla Metrology in Saltillo, Coahuila State, Mexico. The Borbolla distributorship will allow the company to showcase and demonstrate its portable and high-precision scanning systems to Mexican customers.

Coahuila State, just south of the Texas border, is fast becoming a manufacturing center for many industries including mold-making and automotive. Saltillo is considered the Detroit of Mexico because of the presence of several major automotive plants, including General Motors, Daimler Chrysler, Delphi, Honda, Nissan, Ford, Freightliner and Volkswagen. Laser Design’s Surveyor 3-D scanning systems provide technology to improve inspection processes as well as support reverse engineering and CAD modeling used in product design and development for these industries.

“Borbolla Metrology is an important addition in our strategy for becoming the global leader in 3-D laser scanning systems,” says Armando Alonso, Laser Design vice president. “Our new Mexican distributor increases the reach of our sales team and also delivers excellent and timely support to our local customers. Their expert technicians can service and calibrate Surveyor systems onsite, so customers don’t experience any loss of productivity. This makes us even more competitive as a supplier to many Mexican manufacturers.”
