FARO and Cad-Q sign a Distribution Agreement in the Nordic countries

Korntal-Münchingen, 24th of November – FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:FARO), the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and realization technology, announces new Distributor Agreement with CAD-Q in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.

David Southam, Regional manager Europe North from FARO Europe commented: “We are really pleased to be working with Cad-Q. The market for 3D laser scanning and associated software is growing rapidly in Scandinavia and many other regions. I recently attended the Cad-Q Design Management Forum and I was really impressed with the content and quality of the Cad-Q representatives and presenters.  Working with the leading Nordic supplier of 3D software is an exciting project and I am looking forward to collaborating with Cad-Q in the future.” 

Cad-Q was founded in 1989 and employs about 250 skilled employees in 20 offices in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and UK. Cad-Q is 100% owned by Addnode Group listed at Nasdaq OMX Stockholm, Small Cap.

As the leading provider of model and drawing-related IT in the Nordics, CAD-Q is working with software implementation, training, product and IT support related to the construction, real estate and industrial sectors.

Anders Moberg says: “Our solutions are based on CAD ​​systems and internally developed complementary systems for digital model- and drawing-related information. We are active in the building, infrastructure, property and manufacturing industries. Thanks to our experience and broad expertise, we can always introduce cross-border proposal based on your challenges.”

In connection with this agreement, FARO will allow Cad-Q to establish a new business team that provides hardware and software from FARO in the field Reality Capture. Cad-Q's business Facility Management, which for several years worked with 3D laser scanning as a method to document existing buildings will now expand its offering with products from FARO.

The products in question consist of 3D Documentation products including FARO® Laser Scanner Focus3D X Series, FARO® Scanner Freestyle3D and FARO software that integrates pointclouds with design software from Autodesk.

We are very pleased that FARO entrusted us to distribute and sell their products on the Nordic market and we are experiencing a large increase in interest for laser scanning and point cloud handling among our existing and new customers.
