Hexagon acquires machine tool probe manufacturer in Germany

Hexagon has acquired all outstanding shares in m&h Group (www.mh-inprocess.com).
The Group consists of the three German companies m&h Inprocess Messtechnik GmbH,
m&h Inprocess International Trading GmbH and m&h Inspect GmbH.

m&h is a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of machine tool probes
including related software and services. The Group has a strong technology and
intellectual property base.

m&h was founded in 1991 and today employs 55 people. The Group had a turnover of
approximately 90 MSEK in 2007 and has recorded a healthy growth over the last
years. The acquisition of m&h will position Hexagon as a leading player in the
machine tool probing segment.

“The acquisition of m&h adds a comprehensive product line with state of the art
technology and superior quality and reliability to the Hexagon product portfolio
for process control within the machine tool segment”, says Ola Rollén, CEO and
President of Hexagon AB.
