In what is described as a significant move for the industry, VisiConsult X-ray Systems & Solutions GmbH has announced that it has signed an agreement that allows it to acquire a majority stake in the CT specialist diondo GmbH. This strategic cooperation will significantly increase the capabilities of both companies.
Hajo Schulenburg, founder of VisiConsult, said both companies share similar values: “From the strategic to the operational level, our companies have much in common. This exciting new chapter offers significant growth opportunities for everybody. Combining our strong market presence with diondo’s industry-leading CT products will bring tangible value to our customers.”
With almost 30 years of experience in the development and production of industrial computed tomography systems, diondo is a leading manufacturer and service provider. Its innovative system and software solutions for non-destructive testing and metrology are used all over the world. It has established a comprehensive product line for high-end CT applications and a reputable global customer base.
VisiConsult, through its VCxray division, will add the diondo product line to its extensive portfolio of existing products. The high precision CT systems are a perfect completion to the budget ECO line, the sophisticated PRO line, and the customized X line. This allows customers to choose from a broad variety of solutions depending on the inspection task.
Martin Münker, Managing Director at diondo alludes to the natural harmony between the two companies: “Companies that work well together can grow together. Our strengths are complementary, and we see strong opportunities to add value to each other’s operations and products.”
Jason Robbins, Head of Sales at VisiConsult, sees immediate benefits for customers: “diondo’s CT technologies are a perfect addition to our own, wide-ranging portfolio. By adding world-class engineers and developers of these technologies, our customers will be able to partner with us to build virtually anything. From the simplest systems to the most advanced and automated solutions – just about anything is possible. This will allow them to grow their own operations from film to DR to CT and beyond through a unified and cohesive approach.”
diondo will become the Centre of Excellence for CT Technology within VisiConsult. And close cooperation at the developmental level will ensure the seamless integration of diondo into VisiConsult’s x.OS ecosystem. “We are delighted to welcome our new diondo colleagues to the Visi-Family. Together we can look forward to a bright future where we can push the limits of what’s possible,” says Lennart Schulenburg, General Manager of VisiConsult.
