Canadian 3D laser scanner company reports 35% increase in year-over-year sales
Creaform, developer and manufacturer of the Handyscan 3D line-up of handheld laser scanners, celebrated the sale of its 1000th unit, a VIUscan color laser scanner, to the Natural History Museum of London. The Lévis, Qué-based company also recently announced a 35% year over year revenue increase for Q1.
"From the day we released this revolutionary and never-seen-before 3D scanning technology, it took Creaform only four years flat to sell 1000 scanners,” says Charles Mony, president of Creaform. “This tells how reliable it is, and how versatile and profitable the 3D community found it to be."
Creaform launched its first scanner, the REVscan, in June of 2005. Since then, the company has grown from 45 to 200 employees and added four scanners to the Handyscan 3D line-up: the EXAscan, the ERGOscan, the VIUscan and the MAXscan scanner for large parts. Creaform has also become the top seller of 3D scanners in the world, acquired a French company and launched the HandyPROBE portable arm-free CMM.
