The firm says that FASys has an established working relationship with the Hexagon-owned CAD/CAM specialist Vero Software, and the acquisition enhances Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s solution offering in the production areas of the manufacturing process.

Says Vero Software chief executive Steve Sivitter: “In looking to expand our technology portfolio beyond CAM, the acquisition of FASys is a very important step. The company brings great technology and a wealth of manufacturing experience to Vero Software.

“We’ve been collaborating with FASys for some years, so it’s exciting to help the team there expand their global reach and provide our existing customers with more technology to improve productivity.”

Adds FASys general manager Michael Gottschild: “We are extremely pleased to be joining Hexagon. We know we are becoming part of a company with a similar view on how to boost our customers’ productivity, reduce costs and improve quality. We will move forward together with the expertise, knowledge and resources necessary to deliver innovative solutions at an even faster pace.”

Earlier this year it was also announced that Hexagon was buying computer aided engineering software developer MSC Software.
