The acquisition of the California-based company will further strengthen Matrix Technologies’ market position in the US and North America by adding FocalSpot’s highly experienced sales and service staff as well as its strong North American sales and support network to the Matrix Group.

FocalSpot founders, Fred Schlieper and Frank Silva, stated: 'We are extremely excited to join the Matrix team. Matrix has developed state-of-the-art automated inspection products and software and we look forward to leverage those technologies into the FocalSpot product line and work with their talented application and development staff.'

Matrix managing director Eckhard Sperschneider said: 'The acquisition of FocalSpot positions us to increase our market share for manual and automated in-line x-ray inspection solutions in the US through a dedicated regional sales and service approach. The high degree of x-ray system knowledge gained from FocalSpot staff and its founders during various system applications and projects over the past 20 years will position the company for continued success.'
