Jon’s background of 30 years in the Industry from CMM programming, Fixture Design, Applications Engineering, Metrology Sales and Management, including the last 10 years with OGP, make him the ideal candidate to help establish this new and exciting UK venture.
“I believe that with our collective experience and knowledge of the industry, we can firmly establish ourselves as the metrology partner of choice for a great many UK manufacturers” said Jon.

Verus Precision UK will be offering a full subcontract Inspection service including contact and non-contact measurement solutions utilizing a variety of metrology systems. In conjunction to this a full Metrology Fixture Design and Gage R&R service will also be supported.

“Metrology and Metrology Fixtures go hand in hand and Verus are taking this philosophy to the next level with our approach to client needs”. says Michael Nugent, Technical Director.

Nottingham was selected due to its central location and proximity to existing and new UK clients and access to a skilled workforce. “Being located in the Science and Technology Park gives us direct access to Nottingham University and their high calibre graduates. We have already established links to the university and are looking forward to working with them on Metrology projects and graduate internships in the near future”. states Jon Banner, General Manager.
Verus Precision UK has long been on the cards for the Verus Precision group and the pressure from Clients to establish a UK operation was the best incentive they could have.

“The catalyst for our expansion into the UK Market grew from existing client” says Andrew Hodson, Managing Director. “You couldn’t ask for a better confirmation of your services and value to clients.”

Andrew Hodson further states “It was an easy decision for us, as a management team we are comfortable both working and living in the UK, we had wonderful support from Invest UK regional team, Nottingham City Council and the Chamber of Commerce all of which helped us find and investigate premises and business supports.”

The planning for the Verus Precision UK operation started 12 months ago and has steadily gained momentum. With the identification of the location and premises, the Die was Cast.

Over the next 12 months Verus Precision has plans to double staff and metrology capacity. With a emphasis on customer service, Jon and the Verus Team will be actively looking for new clients and opportunities to add value to their Client service offering.
