SHOW NEWS: Aicon completes Breuckmann merger


Show exhibitor Aicon 3D Systems has completed the acquisition of Breuckmann. Breuckmann’s existing site in Meersburg, Germany, will continue to operate as the Scanner Innovation Center under Aicon 3D Systems.

In August 2012, Aicon had already acquired 100% of the shares of Breuckmann and first continued it as wholly owned 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 into Aicon. Through the acquisition of the scanner manufacturer, Aicon 3D Systems has broadened its product range and now operates as a full-range supplier of 3D metrology systems.

Aicon’s MD, Carl-Thomas Schneider, reported, “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 route. We have managed this. Our colleagues in Braunschweig and Meersburg work together in great teams. This brings along valuable synergies.”

Visitors will find Aicon 3D Systems at booth 1114 at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2015.
