AICON 3D Systems acquires Breuckmann


imagesAICON 3D Systems stated the company just completed the acquisition of Breuckmann GmbH through merger with effect from 1 May, 2015. The site of the former Breuckmann GmbH in Meersburg on Lake Constance will be continued as “Scanner Innovation Center” of AICON 3D Systems GmbH.

AICON 3D Systems GmbH acquired 100 % of the shares of Breuckmann GmbH and first continued it as wholly­owned subsidiary. Since then, all development, manufacturing, sales and administrative processes were brought together to act as a single unit. Based on this, the final step was to merge Breuckmann GmbH into AICON 3D Systems GmbH. This strengthens the company’s position on the market, says AICON’s managing director Carl­Thomas Schneider: “The merger with Breuckmann is both the end of an extensive reorganization and the start into a promising future. Most important for us was to take our employees along this way. We have managed this! The colleagues in Braunschweig and Meersburg work together in great teams. This brings along valuable synergies.”

Through the acquisition of the scanner manufacturer, AICON 3D Systems GmbH has broadened its product range and now operates as full­range supplier of 3D metrology systems. The portfolio includes AICON’s portable coordinate measuring machines for universal applications, specialized optical measurement systems for vehicle safety and tube manufacturing as well as 3D scanners for contact-free surface measurement of objects. In some new developments, AICON has already merged the companies’technologies.

With new technologies and systems as well as highly qualified employees, AICON wants to open new worldwide market fields and continue its course for growth.
