||Auburn, MA and Irvine, CA — The integration of PI and miCos GmbH along with the acquisition of the distribution rights in the USA concludes the merger of both companies after Physik Instrumente GmbH became the majority owner of miCos GmbH in September 2011.
The distribution of miCos GmbH products will be integrated in PI's North American organization. MICOS USA will be renamed to MICRONIX USA and continues to be headed by Manfred Schneider, currently president of MICOS USA, who has successfully grown the business for miCos GmbH in the US over the past 6 years. The renamed company will continue the support of the MICOS USA-developed products, including the PPS, PP and VT product lines. All other miCos GmbH products will now globally be marketed under the new PI miCos brand name.
