Parlec and Mahr Announce Partnership (posted 9/28/07)

Parlec, Inc. and Mahr GmbH recently announced a bilateral partnership agreement to market and sell each other’s tool measurement and inspection products.

Parlec, Inc., Fairport, N.Y., and Mahr GmbH, Göttingen, Germany, recently announced a bilateral partnership agreement to market and sell each other’s tool measurement and inspection products. Products covered under the agreement are Parlec’s P1500 and P2500 presetters and Mahr’s MarVision tool inspector lines.

Mahr will market and sell these goods in Europe under the name MarPreset. In turn, Parlec will incorporate Mahr tool measurement products into its product portfolio and market them in North America. In addition, the companies will cooperate on future technology development to expand each of their respective product offerings.

The arrangement expands Parlec’s presence in Europe and other parts of the world for its presetting, tool inspection and tool management products. It extends Mahr’s reputation for laboratory-grade optical metrology equipment to include solutions that meet customer needs in production inspection and manufacturing measuring environments.

The shared product lines are expected to lead to additional collaborative efforts, including co-branded products and technology-sharing initiatives. Mahr and Parlec have agreed to share technologies for the continued technical advancement of both companies’ current product lines, as well as for the development of entirely new solutions in tool and component measurement.

“With this strategic partnership, we’re, in effect, creating a new global leader in precision optical tooling metrology,” said Doug Woods, president of Parlec International. “Working together with Mahr, we can offer a comprehensive approach to tool measurement technology across a wide spectrum of applications and markets.”

Thomas Keidel, chairman of the Mahr Group’s board of directors, said, “Parlec’s tool presetting products are an excellent addition to our product portfolio. We can now offer our customers not only top-quality tool measurement, but also the very best in presetting. This means the customer has the advantage of dealing with one single supplier for both groups of equipment.”
