We have exciting news to share!
On May 10th, 2016, GF Machining Solutions agreed to acquire all shares of Microlution, making us a wholly-owned subsidiary!
We want you to know that Microlution will continue to be run by the same team and our products will continue to be manufactured in Chicago. From the outside nothing will change. We will continue to develop exceptional products and deliver exceptional service to our customers with the added strength of a global equipment manufacturer behind us.
GF Machining Solutions (GFMS) is the machine tool division of the Swiss-based Georg Fischer AG. GFMS offers Milling, EDM, Laser Texturing, Additive Manufacturing, Automation, and Customer Services solutions to its customers in various market segments. Some of the brands under the GFMS umbrella include Mikron, AgieCharmilles, and System 3R.
Microlution was founded in 2005 to develop micro machining platforms optimized for small features on small parts. As our technology, product portfolio, and market penetration have grown, we began evaluating how to best expand our business, support our customers and employees, and develop a global infrastructure to enable continued growth. We are happy to announce that we have found the right partner to help us do all of this in GFMS.
There are exciting synergies between Microlution and GFMS in terms of both product technology and market segments. This partnership will strengthen both companies with the goal of providing market-leading solutions for the micro manufacturing sector.
