The company was founded in Australia, relocating to Germany in 1990 and then the South of France in 1993. In 1999 JETCAM floated on the London AIM Stock Exchange and acquired U.K.-based software developers Camtek Ltd. However, the .com bubble bursting the following year affected all technology stocks, regardless of individual company performance, and JETCAM became a privately owned company again in 2005. The following year JETCAM sold Camtek to Vero Software Limited to invest in further internal growth and has concentrated on its core product range ever since.
The product range covers CADCAM, nesting, DNC and new comprehensive orders, materials and nest management suite serving the aerospace and sheet metal fabrications industries. JETCAM’s products have been nominated and commended several times for the MITCON and The Manufacturer awards, due to the demonstrable return on investment the customers saw. Key areas such as machine runtime, programming time and material utilisation combine to see an ROI that can often be measured in months, not years.
Despite the recession 2010 saw significant growth for the company. The dealer network continues to grow, with new locations including the Lebanon, Syria, Japan and Korea while the recently opened JETCAM Italia s.r.l. office has become one of the company’s strongest selling distributors.
Since 1986, the company has grown to be a dominant force in the CADCAM and nesting market, with more than 7000 licenses spanning 70 countries.
The company recently signed Vigsent as a reseller for its aerospace range of products to the Korean market. Vigsent, based 40 kilometers south of Seoul, is also a reseller for VISTAGY and has staff with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the aerospace composite manufacturing sector.
Vigsent will offer the JETCAM Expert and CrossTrack range of products for aerospace covering CAM, nesting and order, nest, material and material life management.
