There are exciting changes taking place at Verus as they celebrate 10 successful and rewarding years in business.
The changes reflect how the company has evolved since it began in 2008 with a team of three people to one of the top independent metrology service providers in the world.
First of all, the name is changing from Verus Precision to Verus Metrology Partners. This is intended to reflect their bespoke work with high volume global manufacturing firms – including a number of the leading medical device and pharmaceutical organisations
With the new name comes a new look. Verus have completely redesigned and modernised their website to mark their 10th anniversary. With a modern interface, they hope that clients will find the website more relevant as an information hub with the ability to request quotes directly from the site.
The new website will be updated regularly with all the news to share including what shows they will be attending, new product information and personnel additions.
As part of their new benefits to clients, Verus have launched an Approved Partners programme. Under this scheme, they have chosen a select number of hand-picked programmers, trainers and equipment suppliers whose work they respect and recommend.
Partners will be given the ‘Approved Partners’ badge so customers will know they share Verus’ passion for metrology and they provide best in class service.
Fresh from relocating to the new headquarters in Cleveragh, Sligo, on foot of an €800,000 investment, these further changes position the company to ensure they are offering existing and prospective clients the best possible service.
Over the course of its 10-year journey, Verus Metrology Partners has developed into one of the top independent metrology service providers in the world with a global client base. They now have more than 20 dedicated and knowledgeable employees located at their two sites in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
Since the company was established in 2008, by current Managing Director Andrew Hodson and Technical Director Michael Nugent, it has grown every year and that continues. To facilitate this growth, Verus has recently expanded its Board of Directors to include Yvette Haughey as Strategy and Finance Director and Sean MacEntee as Chairperson of the Board.
In May, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation – Heather Humphreys – opened the new state-of-the-art advanced metrology lab in Cleveragh Industrial Estate – where toolmaking and precision engineering first took place in Sligo town – and announced the creation of nine additional jobs.
The company was formerly located at the Aughamore Far Industrial Park, also in Sligo, and are retaining this facility as a centre for Research and New Product Development. They are predicting significant growth in the short-term, with plans to open an independent metrology lab in the United States next year.
