Sartorius-Werkzeuge, part of the global Würth Group, was formed in 1879 and employs over 180 personnel. It is headquartered in Ratingen, Germany and supports customers in the machining tool and machining industries.
Sartorius-Werkzeuge was seeking an industry-leading calibration partner to which it would outsource its customer calibration services.
Exova Metech, the specialist calibration and metrology division of Exova, became its preferred supplier of calibration services. The deal saw Exova Metech take over Sartorius-Werkzeuge’s in-house calibration operation in Ratingen, Düsseldorf and the transfer of technology assets and six skilled personnel as part of the long term agreement.
With four existing calibration laboratories in Germany, the move broadened Exova Metech’s capabilities and support access to new customers and markets across the country and strengthens its position as the leading third-party calibration provider in the Rhein-Ruhr region.
Hans Plattes, managing director at Sartorius-Werkzeuge commented: “Operating in the precision tool market our customers demand the highest standards of calibration services and our deal with Exova Metech secures the best partner for them. We will now be able to offer Exova Metech’s services to new and existing customers, confident they will receive the highest standards of technical service.”
