Carl Zeiss IMT Announces Opening of New West Coast
Tech Center

MAPLE GROVE/Minnesota/USA – September 7th, 2009.
Carl Zeiss IMT opens new West Coast Tech Center in Irvine, California.
“We are dedicated to supporting the high-tech industry on the West
Coast, by providing customers easy access to our most modern and
advanced technology,” said Andy Sisler, Vice President of Sales at
Carl Zeiss IMT. “The new technical center will provide more local
resources and support for this fast paced market. It’s an exciting time for
us because this is a chance to be even closer to our customers, and
show our commitment to customer support after the sale,” adds Sisler.

The new facility is located in an Irvine, California modern technology
park. The new site focuses on application support, contract inspection
services, software training, and demonstration of ZEISS equipment.
“Providing contract inspection services is an exciting part of what we are
building here, states Drew Shemenski, Software and Applications
Manager at Carl Zeiss IMT. “With a full suite of Metrology Systems at
this facility, we have the capability to support the inspection needs of
everyone from micro-molders, up through traditional CNC job shops, as
well as specialists such as gear and turbine manufacturers.”

“This will be a first-class experience for our customers. We’re very
proud to have available a full range of our industry leading bridge-type
machines and our most advanced metrology systems. “We’re excited
about the type of technology we have in Irvine,” says Shemenski. The
