Carl Zeiss Opens New Assembly and Demo Center in India

OBERKOCHEN, GERMANY—In July 2012, Carl Zeiss opened a new assembly and demo center for Industrial Metrology in Ban- galore, India. "The opening of this new center enables us to manufacturer our coordinate measuring machines (CMM) directly on site for a market with major potential. We can react more quickly to the needs of our customers and will be able to expand our market position," says Dr. Rainer Ohnheiser, president and CEO of Carl Zeiss Industrial Measuring Technology.

The Tech Center there allows Industrial Metrology to offer its customers additional services such as demos, training, contract programing, contract measurements and a service hotline.

Wilson Thomas, managing director of Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology in India, adds: "We are very proud to open our fourth production site here in India after Oberkochen, Minneapolis and Shang- hai. This move enables us to address the growing significance of India in the global economy."

Industrial Metrology has been active in India since 1975. After entering the market through a coope- ration with Empire Machine Tools, the first sales office opened in Bangalore in 1997, followed by three tech centers in Bangalore (2008), Pune (2010) and Chennai (2012).

Additional Carl Zeiss business groups, including Vision Care, Medical Technology and Microscopy, are also present at this new site.
