JULY 11--Polytec PI Inc. (Tustin, CA), a provider of laser-based measurement systems to North America, has reorganized to become Polytec Inc. (www.polytec.com). The reorganization completes the separation of Polytec and PI's North American operations. The separation strategy was implemented to better serve Polytec and PI customers in North America. This stateside change mirrors the physical and financial separation in 2002 of the parent businesses in Germany--Polytec GmbH and Physik Instrumente GmbH (PI).

Says Polytec president Michael Townsend, "We have taken the strategic step of separating these two companies so that each can focus on its distinct markets, while building on the brand awareness each company has developed worldwide as Polytec or PI. The Polytec name is the standard for innovation in precision, laser-based 3-D measurement of structural dynamics, micro motion analysis, laser vibrometry, and velocimetry."

Polytec Inc., headquartered in California, has an eastern regional sales office in Auburn, MA.

Polytec Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Polytec GmbH (Waldbronn, Germany). The company has delivered high-performance laser-based measurement solutions and products for R&D, industrial, medical, automotive, MEMS, semiconductor, photonics, and aerospace markets for 30 years. Offering solutions in electro-optical instrumentation, Polytec's commitment to "advancing measurements by light" has earned the company numerous national and international awards.
