Zeiss expands the industrial metrology and quality assurance portfolio of its Industrial Quality and Research segment by acquiring GOM, a leading provider of hardware and software for automated 3D coordinate measuring technology. Both Zeiss and GOM have enjoyed strong growth in the past years and proved successful on the market. The combination of existing products and solutions as well as joint innovations in the future will lay the foundation for shaping and entering new markets. 

Combining the Zeiss product portfolio with the optical 3D measuring technology from GOM has the potential to create new opportunities and expand market access for Industrial Quality and Research. GOM offers cutting-edge solutions for surface digitization, which will strengthen Zeiss in this area.

GOM GmbH develops, produces and distributes software, machines and systems for industrial and automated 3D coordinate measuring technology and 3D testing. Founded in 1990, the company is headquartered in Braunschweig, Germany, and has a global workforce of about 600 people. Its customers include international companies from the automotive, aerospace and consumer goods industries as well as research institutions and universities.

Once the transaction has been completed, GOM will become part of the Zeiss Industrial Quality and Research segment. The legal form of the GOM companies in Germany and abroad will remain unchanged. The successful cooperation with the global sales partners will be continued. Subject to approval by the regulatory authorities, the transaction is due to be finalized in the first half of 2019.
