Zeiss and Guardus have announced that the software solutions supplier for computer-supported quality assurance and production management systems based in the German city of Ulm has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Zeiss Group.

For Zeiss, the integration of Guardus into its Industrial Metrology (IMT) business group will further strengthen its own position as a partner for increasing productivity in digital manufacturing. The Computer Aided Quality (CAQ) applications and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) from Guardus provide customers with a fully integrated analysis and steering function for production.

Initially, the joint customer focus will be on the automotive and engineering industries as well as medical technology. Guardus' existing sites in Ulm and Timisoara, Romania will be retained. For the approximately 60 employees, business operations will be transferred as per German legal provisions.
