Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology (IMT) has acquired a 75 per cent share of Junker & Partner, which specialises in the design, development and production of measuring equipment for automotive parts.



The majority interest in Junker & Partner means that IMT will now be able to offer planning services such as clamping and measuring point planning, as well as computer numerical control (CNC) application planning and launch support.



According to IMT, Junker & Partner’s strong customer base and successful clamping platform fuelled the acquisition.



Franz-Rudolf Junker and Alfred Huber, managing partners of Junker & Partner, said: ‘The international success of our CARFIT standard measuring fixture system has led to rapid corporate growth in recent years. We are now one of the leading global providers of modular measuring fixture systems.’



Based in Tholey, Germany, Junker & Partner has 80 employees and generates annual revenues of €10m.
