ZEISS Opens Operation Center Outside Detroit, Michigan

12/14/2018
A leading manufacturer of multidimensional metrology solutions, ZEISS started the construction of a new industrial quality and research site outside of Detroit, Michigan.

The new facility for the Industrial Quality and Research segment of ZEISS, represented in the USA by Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, will consolidate four existing Michigan facilities into one location and provide room for business growth, company officials said. It will contain a customer demonstration area with new technologies and systems, offer training, support and metrology services, and house fixture system production and assembly.

According to company officials, the new center will provide a broad portfolio of dimensional metrology and inspection equipment and services to a wide variety of industries including: automotive, medical, aerospace, defense, machine tools and general manufacturing job shops. With almost 170 employees, the center will span over 82,800 ft with two floors and is expected to open in 2020.

"We are investing over 45 million dollars in the Detroit metro region to strengthen and increase our engagement in this global automotive and smart factory hot spot. This will not only have a strong, positive impact for our customers and partners in North America, but will also generate new momentum for the whole Industrial Quality and Research segment of ZEISS worldwide," says Dr. Jochen Peter, Member of the Executive Board of the ZEISS Group and Head of the Industrial Quality and Research segment.

"With the new ZEISS Center in Michigan, we aim to assure a higher level of satisfaction with our solutions for our customers and provide a more attractive working environment for our team," explains Michael Kirchner, member of the leadership team for the ZEISS Industrial Quality Solutions strategic business unit and Head of its business in North America.

ZEISS measuring specialists will be able to perform proof-of-capability demonstrations for multidimensional measurement equipment, surface form and geometry equipment, and non-destructive testing and surface defect detection equipment. The need to show how digital platforms and solutions that connect ZEISS equipment to the new infrastructure within modern smart factory environments is becoming increasingly important.
