PITTSBURGH, July 27, 2021 – Aerotech Inc., a global leader in precision motion control and automation, today announced the launch of Peak Metrology, an Aerotech company dedicated entirely to designing and building capital equipment for surface metrology processes. Led by RJ Hardt, a 10-year Aerotech veteran, Peak Metrology leverages Aerotech’s extensive positioning system expertise, state-of-the-art facilities and financial resources while being solely focused on helping customers solve surface metrology challenges.
“We saw impressive success while Peak Metrology operated as an internal division,” said Mark Botos, Aerotech’s CEO, “and we know the Peak Metrology team is on a course for rapid growth – evolving into a partnership was the natural next step. Most importantly, we are excited about the ways both Aerotech and Peak Metrology customers are already benefiting from this partnership’s technological and financial resources, competitive price points and lead times.”
Peak Metrology offers product development, engineering, installation and training services. Co-located with Aerotech’s world headquarters in Pittsburgh, Peak Metrology is fully staffed with dedicated engineering, sales and support teams.
