Levis, Quebec-based 3D scanner and engineering services company, Creaform, is understandably exuberant about its recently released 2nd Quarter numbers for 2011. The company reported sales of $9.6 million for a Year-on-Year (YOY) growth rate of 63 percent, continuing a streak of rapid growth. In June, Creaform was ranked as the 114th fastest-growing Canadian company in 2011 on Profit magazine’s Profit 200 list.

In the EMEA (Europe-Middle East-Africa) region alone, Creaform’s sales growth topped 131 percent over 2010, a year that included an equally successful fourth quarter. The company says it saw similar rates in the Asia-Pacific and an expanded Amercas regions.

Technology sales stand-outs, the company said, include the HandyPROBE arm-free CMM line-up with 118 percent growth YOY, as well as the Handyscan 3D and MetraSCAN 3D scanner product lines. Beyond hardware sales, the company’s 3D Engineering Services division — which includes reverse engineering, FEA analysis and mechanical design and engineering– experienced 91 percent YOY growth, the company said.
