First, tell us about yourself and your connection to FARO?
I have nearly 30 years of management, engineering and design experience in the refining, power, marine, process and integrated chip industry. I established Summit Engineering and Design, LLC in 1998 with the goal to provide great value to client's with a service oriented fit-for-purpose approach to engineering and design. I was first introduced to 3D laser scanning back in 2001, and Summit's investment in 3D Laser Scanning has been driven by the belief that this technology, used properly, provides exceptional value to our clients. Summit has used FARO Laser Scanners since 2006 and continues to be impressed with FARO's commitment to serving their client's need for smaller more cost effective scanners while maintaining high quality data acquisition.
