We strive to provide world-class metrology solutions and services that enable you our customers to achieve enhanced business outcomes in terms of quality, productivity and innovation.
Who we are
Hi-Tech Metrology was founded in 1992 by managing director Ian Martin to support and promote the Sheffield Measurement range of Coordinate Measuring Machines throughout Australia and New Zealand. From that point on by combining an ever growing range of technologies with an impressive range of after-sales services the company has grown to become a leading supplier of metrology solutions throughout the region.
Today our extensive range of metrology and scanning equipment combined with a complete array of support services and offices throughout Australasia enable us to tailor complete solutions incorporating hardware, software and engineering for virtually any measurement or reverse engineering task.
Our business units have been developed to help and support clients with all of their measurement needs; whether it is a capital equipment purchase, support of existing equipment, or provision of contract measurement services from our projects group. All these business units form part of a unique Australian business, one that strives to provide the best possible products and service to our existing and future customers.
After completing high school in the UK Ian migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1974 where he joined the Gas & Fuel Corporation as an apprentice Fitter and Turner. On completion of his apprenticeship Ian gained experience in programming CNC machining centres and lathes eventually taking up an Application Engineer role with Gilbert Lodge. This led to his passion for the metrology industry and in 1992 Ian saw the need for a specialist company dedicated to the metrology sector so Hi-Tech Metrology was born.
After completing an Apprenticeship with James N Kirby and spending several years as a maintenance engineer at Roden Products Craig joined Gilbert Lodge as a Service/Applications Engineer progressing into a Sales role and eventually a Product Management position. Craig then worked for John Hart as their NSW branch manager for 13 years joining Hi-Tech Metrology in 2006. Metrology Products have been part of Craig’s working life for over 35years.
