Lévis, February 22, 2012 – 2012 is a key and festive year for Creaform, leader in 3D portable optical measurement technologies and 3D engineering services, as the Canada-based company founded in 2002 reaches 10 years of innovation, growth and success.

Creaform from 2002 to 2012
Over the 10 past years, Creaform has grown from a 5-employee metrology services start-up to a 300-employee international company and major developer and manufacturer of 3D portable optical measurement technology and provider of 3D engineering services.

The company has shown a spectacular 79% compounded growth rate since 2002, and has sold more than 2500 systems in the past decade. Plus, the company has been awarded more than 30 prizes for its vision, innovation and success.

“Looking back at the past decade and considering the humble means that we had in 2002, I’m just in awe of what we have accomplished, and how fast we became a major player in the 3D optical measurement technology industry, says president Charles Mony. This might sound a bit cliché, but all of this was made possible by the innovation spirit and tireless work of our crew, the support of our partners and the confidence of our ever-growing client base. 10 years have gone by, and yet our drive, passion and determination remain absolutely intact. ”

Creaform in the future
According to Creaform’s quinquennial strategic plan, the company expects to increase its already fast-paced growth rate and also strengthen its position as a major player in the industry of metrology. Furthermore, the company follows a very ambitious R&D program that will lead to the development and launch of several new technologies reflecting Creaform’s commitment to create innovative, accurate, reliable and easy to use devices.
