FocalSpec makes it to millions
Finnish FocalSpec, which specialises in roughness measurement, has raised 3.5 million euros in funding for business development.
FocalSpec’s Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) technology is challenging the position of the laser, which has been the most commonly used measuring technology in quality control.
FocalSpec’s current customer base include global corporations in consumer and mobile electronics, as well as the plastic and pharmaceutical industries.
“For a small startup, such significant funding enables us to scale up and grow our operation,” says Sauli Törmälä, president of FocalSpec. “First and foremost, this funding is a sign of FocalSpec’s international credibility. We have crucial expertise in our industry on the roughness measurement of transparent surfaces, for example.”
According to Törmälä, FocalSpec will double its number of employees within a year.
FocalSpec is based in Oulu, Finland, and has business operations in Europe, Asia and the United States.
