Metrology provider The Sempre Group has been appointed to Renishaw’s Channel Partner Programme to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) access high-quality co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) and gauging systems. By becoming a Premium Partner for the UK and Ireland, Sempre can now support OEMs and end users in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries by supplying Renishaw’s leading measurement systems and technologies.
After a challenging two years for manufacturing supply chains around the world, the benefits of localised support and speedy product supply for customers is clear. Renishaw launched its Channel Partner Programme in 2021 to help enhance local customer service and product support throughout the EMEA sales region. Within the programme, new partners are appointed based on their sector-specific experience and expertise in different metrology and manufacturing disciplines.
As a Premium Partner, The Sempre Group will now have reseller access to Renishaw’s product portfolio, including the PH20 five-axis touch-trigger system, the Equator™ gauging system and the REVO® 5-axis measurement system. This uses synchronised motion and five-axis measurement technology to minimise the dynamic effects of CMM motion at ultra-high measurement speeds.
“The Sempre Group has made several steps to better serve its UK and Irish customers — we’ve launched new products and services, as well as opened a dedicated Irish facility in County Dublin,” explained Jim Mangan, managing director of The Sempre Group. “Becoming a premium partner is a real endorsement of our team — Renishaw carefully selects its partners based on expertise and knowledge of particular regions, something that we hold in very high esteem. We are now in an even stronger position to provide on-the-ground support and a high-quality product offering, giving manufacturers a competitive edge in the global market.”
“Its significant presence in the automotive and medical device markets, and its new local sales and demonstration centre in Dublin, Ireland, makes The Sempre Group a strong channel partner,” explained Jonathan Archer, General Manager EMEA North at Renishaw. “This partnership enables Renishaw to target these markets with its innovative products and solutions and both companies will collaborate further on providing training and support, benefitting our mutual customer base.”
