NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI – Hexagon Metrology Inc., a supplier of metrology equipment and software, and Hartwig Inc. of St. Louis, a distributor of computer numeric control (CNC) machine tools and metal cutting solutions in the central and mountain United States, have signed an agreement to form a strategic partnership.

The eight regional offices of Hartwig Inc. will become authorized distributors of Hexagon Metrology’s dimensional measurement products across a 14-state territory. Hexagon Metrology products are used in quality control applications for manufacturing and include programmable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), portable articulated arms and software under the Brown & Sharpe, Romer and PC-DMIS brand names.

“Hartwig is extremely excited to join the Hexagon Metrology distribution network,” says Gary Hartwig, president of Hartwig Inc. “Not only are the products an ideal complement to the existing machine tool lines that we already sell, they represent the broadest portfolio of products in the dimensional metrology market and give us a wealth of new solutions to offer our customers.”

“Hartwig is a prime example of the modern industrial distributor,” says Angus Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Hexagon Metrology Inc. “By offering comprehensive solutions to the industrial market that cover all stages from design through manufacture, they truly can offer complete solutions to their customers. Hartwig’s existing experience in the metrology market means that they will be able to quickly and seamlessly integrate our product portfolio into their extensive offering of solutions for manufacturing.”

The partnership allows both companies to more effectively serve the increasingly sophisticated requirements of the manufacturing community throughout the central and mountain United States, particularly in the aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, windpower, and heavy machinery markets.
