Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, announces the strengthening of its range of fixturing solutions for global industrial metrology applications. Following Renishaw’s acquisition of Michigan, US-based, R&R Fixtures, LLC, in 2012, as of today (July 1st, 2019), R&R Fixtures, LLC, will officially change its name to Renishaw Fixturing Solutions, LLC, as part of the final phase of integration into the Renishaw business.
This name change will now see all of R&R products and associated marketing collateral featuring Renishaw’s distinctive branding. It will provide existing, and prospective, customers, with a greater choice of high-quality fixturing solutions, reinforced by Renishaw’s strong service and support ethos, for which it has built an enviable reputation since its formation in 1973.
This change takes place as Renishaw progresses the development of an exciting, new 52,000 square foot centre of excellence for its metrology fixturing design and manufacturing, based in Norton Shores, Michigan, USA. This cutting-edge facility (located just a few miles away from R&R’s existing Grand Haven operations, but approximately three times the size) will set the standard for local manufacturing by featuring highly energy-efficient technologies such as indoor air management systems and power distribution, furthering Renishaw’s global commitment to environmental responsibility.
The increase in market demand and growth in metrology fixturing cemented the need for increased capacity and capabilities. The new facility will include a fully equipped demo room, allowing for workshops, open houses and on-site product training.
