Moduloc Control Systems and Shapeline Enter Business Partnership

Shapeline, front-line maker of online flatness measurement systems for the steel and metal industry, enters a business co-operation with Moduloc for the UK and Irish markets.

Wheathamstead, United Kingdom, January 29, 2009 --( Moduloc Control Systems have for 25 years supplied the British market with sensors and measurement systems. The company will as of now represent Shapeline´s full range of flatness measurement systems for cold and hot applications in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

“Moduloc and we met at an advanced project for a customer in Latin America,” says Shapeline CEO, Pär Kierkegaard, PhD. ”Since representation in the United Kingdom and Ireland have not been optimal for us, and the fit between our companies is very good, it was an easy decision to start working together also in this way.”

”The technically advanced solutions and the dedication to quality development for the metals industry is something that Shapeline and Moduloc shares,” says Mr. Paul Griffin, Managing Director of Moduloc Control Systems Ltd. “As Dr. Kierkegaard mentioned we are working together on a technical project, of which I hope to be able to soon announce, where mutual respect for our respective solutions and knowledge made this partnership seem like the natural way forward”, he continues.

Shapeline systems are used from Korea to the USA to measure flatness on metal products. From casting to inspection of the final product there are applications where the manufacturers will benefit from the accuracy and experience of the company.
