Wenzel GmbH of Germany, a large manufacturer of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), opened a new 24,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in Wixom, MI on October 9, 2007. The two-story building houses all of Wenzel’s North American administrative and engineering offices.
“The North American operation, known as Wenzel/Xspect Solutions, becomes our third worldwide manufacturing center, complementing what we currently have in Europe and Asia,” says Frank Wenzel, managing director. “In 2006, Wenzel produced and sold over 500 machines worldwide and currently has over 5,000 CMMs in operation around the world, as well as over 10,000 software licenses.”
The dedication ceremony preceded a two-day open house for current and prospective Wenzel/Xspect Solutions customers. The proceedings included a demonstration and display of the Wenzel X-Checker shop floor CMM, the X-Cite CMM and X-Measure, a new, specially developed user interface for OpenDMIS software.
