In September 2016, GOM moved to its new head office in Braunschweig. With the relocation, GOM reacts to the rising demand for 3D Testing and 3D Metrology systems. Particularly, the worldwide need for automated measuring and inspection procedures led to the relocation and thus to enlarged production and development departments.
In addition to production halls and logistics, the campus of the new headquarters includes research and development laboratories, administration as well as a customer center for training and presentations at an 8-hectare area. In Braunschweig alone, up to 500 employees, including engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians, will shape the optical measuring technology of the future. Thereby, the company contributes considerably to the industrial processes according to “Industry 4.0”. Only by 3D digitizing the actual states of finished and semi-finished products and tools, this development became possible. Going forward, based on the measuring results, production, maintenance and servicing systems will be self-controlling.
GOM develops, produces and distributes software, sensor technology, automated systems and complete solutions for industrial applications in 3D Metrology and 3D Testing. Worldwide, the company comprises over 60 sites with an employee network of more than 1,000 metrology specialists, including partners and subsidiaries. Today, more than 10,000 system installations improve product quality and accelerate product development and manufacturing processes for international companies in the automotive, aerospace and consumer goods industries and their suppliers. GOM systems support the development of new materials and manufacturing processes also in research institutes and universities.
