ROCHESTER, NY — Optical Gaging Products, a division of Quality Vision International, recently unveiled plans for the expansion of its customer center in Rochester, NY.

The 4,500 square foot addition will double the size of the existing applications lab and showroom, and create a dedicated metrology training center for OGP customers and representatives.

The new equipment demonstration center will feature a precision climate controlled lab for high accuracy applications work and gage repeatability and reproducibility studies, as well as expanded office and conference space for the OGP applications engineering staff.

“Thanks to our growing business we are pleased to be making this expansion,” said OGP President R. Stephen Flynn. “Not only has OGP added larger travel versions of our industry leading SmartScope models, we’ve also added new products including the VICI Vision shaft measuring systems, and QVI FlexPoint systems. This doubling of our OGP Customer Center will provide adequate demonstration and training space for our larger and ever growing metrology product offerings.”

“Demand for our SmartScope multisensor measurement systems and our recently introduced ZONE3 software remains high as global manufacturers continue to invest in quality and process control as leverage for earning and retaining new business and market share. Our systems are instrumental to many manufacturers’ quality programs,” Flynn said.

The new facility is scheduled to open in December 2015.

The OGP Customer Center expansion is the third major facility expansion on QVI’s Rochester campus in the past year.
