Boulder Imaging and Framos Imaging Solutions Announce Distributor Agreement

October 7, 2010

United States vision and imaging solutions company Boulder Imaging and European vision integrator and reseller Framos Imaging Solutions formally announce a Distributor Agreement at Vision 2010 in Stuttgart, Germany. Framos will now be selling the full line of Boulder Imaging products (Quazar high performance recorders and Vision Inspector line of machine vision solutions). To date, Boulder Imaging has provided solutions to its international customers, such as GE Energy in Germany. Now the alliance with Framos will provide for focused European market.

Michael Willis, President of Boulder Imaging explains, “We have been extremely careful in executing partnerships, relationships and overall managing our growth – which has been astronomical (doubling year over year). Our alliance with Framos opens up Europe to Boulder Imaging’s image acquisition, analysis, and processing solutions in a substantial way. In the past we didn’t pursue European customers with a focused, concerted sales and marketing effort. With Framos, we now have the ideal partner to do so. Their strong presence in the throughout Europe, along with their stellar reputation as one of the premiere providers of imaging components and solutions in Europe is the catalyst for great success for our product lines there.”

CEO of Framos Imaging Solutions, Andreas Franz stated that, “We have been seeking the right high performance imaging products to add to our existing imaging mix for a while. We require partners to have high quality products that deliver significant value which excel in technical innovation and in price/performance. Boulder Imaging went well beyond these criteria and now Framos can confidently go head to head with anyone and provide the best in vision solutions and products for any application.”

Ph.D. Franz continued, “We are very excited to now offer the Boulder Imaging line of machine vision and recorders to offer to our customers. We are also looking forward to building on Boulder Imaging’s success in delivering the Quazar High Performance Digital Video Recording (HPDVR) systems into military, security and defense customers along with the Vision Inspector line of solutions for machine vision customers.”

At Vision 2010 Framos will be demonstrating Boulder Imaging’s Vision Inspector Beacon at booth E76 in Hall 4. The partnership with Framos continues Boulder Imaging’s quiet but rapid move from a niche player into an international presence in vision solutions. This partnership announcement will certainly cause various vision technology manufactures to sit up and take notice.
