Isra Vision has entered into a strategic partnership with the Swedish industry group Atlas Copco, forming the new Machine Vision Solutions division.
As a separate division in Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business area, Isra will continue to operate from its headquarters in Darmstadt and is building a new headquarters north of Darmstadt. The move-in is scheduled for the end of 2022.
Also part of the new division are the previously acquired image processing and visual quality control specialist Quiss GmbH of Germany and the U.S. company Perceptron, which specializes in automated measurement technology.
Additionally, Isra Vision created a new three-member management team following the retirement announcement of Enis Ersü, founder and CEO of Isra. The team consists of Hans Jürgen Christ and Johannes Giet, Isra Vision executive board members, and the new speaker of the Isra Vision executive board, Tomas Lundin.
Lundin worked for the Atlas Copco Group for over 20 years in various management positions. In the last four years, he gained experience in the Asian market as a general manager of industrial techniques in China. He has been on-site at Isra’s headquarters in Darmstadt since August 2020 and is a member of the management board. Lundin will lead the new division as president machine vision solutions from the headquarters in Darmstadt.
Jürgen Christ has been with Isra for 25 years. Giet joined Isra in 2001 via the acquisition of Rheinmetall Machine Vision, where he was the transaction manager. Subsequently, he took over the management of the development of Isra worldwide.
