Creaform manufactures metrology and 3D engineering devices for use in shop-floor environments It is based in Lévis, Quebec, Canada. The company was founded in 2002 by Martin Lamontagne and two co-workers at Modelex. It began with a $200,000 loan from the Business Development Bank of Canada. Creaform was acquired by Ametek in 2013 for $120 million in cash. At the time, Creaform had annual sales of $52 million. In 2017, Creaform opened a new, $20 million, headquarters in Levis. The new headquarters of 76,000 square feet is double the size of the old one, and will allow Creaform to triple its production. In 2009, the company announced that it sold its 1000 scanner, which, considering the price (between 50 000 and 100 000 USD), was noteworthy.
