We have spent 15 years evolving metrology technology. Verus Precision (trading as Verus Metrology Partners) was established by Andrew Hodson, Chief Executive Office and Michael Nugent, Chief Operations Officer in 2008 as Ireland’s first independent sub-contract metrology house.
Back then, our sub-contract metrology service would start when parts were received. The team would measure the parts, create a report and finally, issue the findings. However, as the founders are toolmakers by trade, to speed up the measurement process, they began building metrology fixtures internally also. As a result of this innovative thinking, the profound effect the measuring tools had on the metrology process was increasingly witnessed by clients during on-site visits.
Our clients soon learned how our tailored metrology fixtures enabled their in-house quality process to increase speed, accuracy, and repeatability. This innovation led to positive business impacts for our clients beyond the quality department, such as increasing ROI and a reduction in failed parts.
What was once envisioned as an in-house metrology solution for Verus, our measurement inspection fixtures are now a fundamental element in the process of measurement for global leaders across the MedTech industry.
Our commitment has resulted in double-digit annual growth as well as a customer base of international stature. Today, we are proud to be a world-leading provider of turnkey metrology solutions with three locations, two based in Co. Sligo in Ireland and one in Nottinghamshire, UK.
Verus Metrology Partners (Formally Verus Precision) was established in 2008 in Co. Sligo, Ireland. The founders each possessed expertise in the fields of Toolmaking and Moldflow Analysis in addition to Metrology and Fixture Design, Manufacture & Assembly.
As our international stature grew, so did our capacity. Hence, in 2015 we opened our UK Metrology Lab. Based in Nottingham, the expansion meant we were perched right on the doorstep of our UK client base. Thus, leading to the providence of a more streamlined subcontract metrology service in addition to increased metrology fixture capability.
Then, with our capacity continuing to increase, we acquired a much larger space in 2018. Accordingly, the new building, situated in Cleveragh in Co. Sligo was to facilitate requirements for our own in-house precision manufacturing.
Embarking upon ambitious own product development, Verus’ Research and Development Center was established in early 2020. Specifically, the initiative sees the migration of Verus-developed automated metrology and inspection solutions onto the shop floor.
Incorporated in Delaware with the first Verus US-based metrology applications support hub established in the heart of Boston, Verus USA brings an increased level of opportunity for both ourselves as turnkey metrology experts and our valued US-based clients, enabling us to provide a faster, more streamlined service and further highlights our dedication to the US medical device market.
