Hexagon AB, a global specialist in digital reality solutions combining sensors, software and autonomous technologies, today announced the acquisition of ETQ. This company is a provider of QMS (Quality Management Systems), EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) and Compliance Management software.
ETQ customers have long trusted ETQ Reliance, a scalable, multi-entity QMS solution. It provides the backbone of data to automate the collection and transmission of manufacturing quality control data, nonconformity reports, customer feedback and more, providing an enterprise view of quality management throughout the product lifecycle. Its wide range of leading applications offers out-of-the-box functionality and code-free configurability, enabling customers to tailor the solution to their specific needs and optimize critical operating processes to achieve their quality, safety and environmental protection goals.
"ETQ is an excellent complement to our quality data capture and intelligent digital reality solutions that occupy a leading position in the market. This acquisition brings a set of advanced quality assurance skills and competencies across a multitude of industries, providing a response to the growing gap between the creation and exploitation of quality data," said Olla Rollén, President and CEO of Hexagon. The interfacing of data from our metrology systems with Reliance increases the degree of autonomy. This improves a customer's ability to implement quality and process data. ETQ also connects quality data and processes across supply chains, bringing suppliers and customers together in a single system. »
ETQ's advanced data management capabilities, which leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence, make quality data fully actionable and available for upstream activities. This not only reduces scrap, defects, corrections and recalls, but also establishes a self-contained feedback loop, digital information trail and virtuous cycle of continuous improvement.
"Hexagon has a long history of helping customers realize the benefits of automation driven by data and product quality insights, in combination with the freedom to create the manufacturing unit of tomorrow. An autonomous workshop that has the ability to optimize and repair itself, says Olla Rollén. Supported by our global presence, vertical synergies and range of complementary solutions, including the recent acquisition of EAM, ETQ is poised for rapid growth. We are proud to welcome ETQ to our group as we accelerate our rise and create the world's first quality management platform encompassing all operating and management processes. »
