Micro-Poise Measurement Systems, LLC announces acquisition of COLLMANN Tire Systems & Services GmbH of Lübeck, Germany.

September 1, 2010

The management team at Micro-Poise is always searching for new technologies and products to keep us at the forefront of your business interests. In this spirit, we are excited to announce a unique business acquisition that not only adds to our product offerings, but will provide you with new opportunities for increased productivity.

On September 1, 2010, Micro-Poise Measurement Systems acquired the assets of COLLMAN Tire Systems & Services GmbH of Lübeck, Germany. COLLMANN is a leading European company for high precision X-ray and measurement equipment in the tire and automobile industry. Included in this acquisition are all of COLLMANN's unique technologies and products.

This new wholly-owned entity, COLLMANN GmbH, will operate as a division of Micro-Poise. Micro-Poise will support the COLLMANN GmbH product line globally. There will be no interruption of sales or service. In fact, COLLMANN GmbH aftermarket sales and service will be expanded through the Micro-Poise global sales and service network. Micro-Poise offers the largest tire test and measurement direct sales force in the world and is supported by an extensive, trained service and extended distribution network.

Of key interest to you is the addition of the COLLMANN VerTiX line of high precision tire X-ray equipment. VerTiX offers a unique, proprietary Automatic Data Recognition (ADR) software system for precise X-ray imagery. The ADR system was developed by JoVision UG of Hamburg, Germany, and is under exclusive license to COLLMANN GmbH. VerTiX can be added to the Micro-Poise Modular Tire Measurement Systems (MTMS) designed to optimize the tire measurement process for uniformity and dynamic balance measurements providing one package to final finish.

If you have any questions about COLLMANN GmbH and the division's products or service offerings, please contact our Micro-Poise headquarters at +1-330-541-9100. We look forward to continuing our business relationship with you well into the future with new technologies, products and aftermarket service in an ever-changing global marketplace.
