NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of measurement and control solutions, has announced that it has entered into a strategic-business agreement to market and sell certain LIMAB products into the United States and Canadian markets. Under the new agreement, the Beta LaserMike products group will sell LIMAB system solutions for the non-contact dimensional measurement of metal products such as long tubes, bars and billets and flat slabs and plates, as well as wood-based panel products. Sales of LIMAB systems to the gypsum board market, as well as technical support and service, will still be carried out by LIMAB North America Inc. in Charlotte, NC.

"We are pleased to announce this strategic sales agreement with LIMAB," says Randy Luffman, Vice President of Sales for NDC’s Beta LaserMike Cable, Metals and Tube business. "For a number of years, LIMAB has sold Beta LaserMike LaserSpeed® non-contact length and speed gauges to support their applications in the measurement of steel products and building materials. LIMAB’s non-contact dimensional measurement systems will enhance our product portfolio by providing greater breadth and depth of gauging solutions for our customers across markets we serve. It’s a win-win business situation for both organizations.”

"We are pleased to join forces with NDC’s Beta LaserMike team to provide a wider range of products to its valued customers," said Lars Granlund, Managing Director of LIMAB. "We have admired NDC’s business performance, as well as its geographic scope and product portfolio, and look forward to working closely with the Beta LaserMike team as we integrate our sales, create enhanced opportunities and continue to grow our businesses and for both organizations. Combining the NDC sales organization with the resources at our North American headquarter in Charlotte, NC, will enhance our possibilities to give excellent sales and technical support to existing and new customers."

The Beta LaserMike and LIMAB names both have strong brand recognition in the marketplace and are well known for delivering industry leading measurement solutions that improve product quality, increase productivity, boost process reliability and provide production savings. This strategic partnership further increases brand awareness and creditability in the marketplace.´╗┐
