Hexagon Metrology celebrated the opening of its Representative Office at the University of Kragujevac. More than 70 guests attended the event on 29th November, among them representatives of Fiat Automobili Srbija, PMC, Johnson Controls, Helioplast, D-Company and VTI. The Dean of the Faculty of Mechanics, Prof. Dr Babić Miroslav and Prof. Dr Bogdan Nedic, inaugurated the new location which is equipped with different measurement systems from Hexagon Metrology.
“The opening of the Representative Office in Serbia underlines the strategic importance of this market. We have high expectations – especially considering the growth of the automotive industry which is relying on our 3D metrology equipment all over the world,” says Paolo De Bortoli, Export Manager for Central Eastern Europe & Mediterranean Countries at Hexagon Metrology. Hexagon Metrology has been active on the Serbian market for years but to move closer to the customers and to satisfy the rising demand more efficiently the company now opened their own premises.
Vladimir Ivanovic was recently appointed General Manager of Hexagon Metrology Representative Office in Serbia. He adds: “Kragujevac as a location offers many advantages. Fiat – one of our main customers – runs a plant in the city and being closer to them will allow us to provide service immediately. Also as we are part of the campus we have the chance to bring 3D metrology into students’ minds.”
The Representative Office with its demo room is equipped with a DEA GLOBAL Silver coordinate measuring machine and a ROMER Absolute Arm. The systems will not only be used for customer presentations but will also be fully available for hands-on training of the students.
