GapGun Pro is a handheld laser-based precision measurement instrument used to control production quality in automotive, aerospace turbine and energy industries worldwide. It builds on all the key capabilities of the original GapGun but with greatly increased speed, ease of use, improved portability and a more rugged design.

Last Wednesday (9th November), representatives of the company attended a regional reception lunch at @Bristol to recognise this prestigious achievement and collect their award.

I’m lucky enough to work with an extremely talented bunch of people who are able to turn innovative ideas into commercial success.  GapGun Pro was a whole company effort with staff from sales and marketing, finance, research and development, support and production all providing input and feedback at each development stage. This award recognises all their hard work, as well as the loyalty of our much valued customers who trust us time and time again to deliver cutting edge precision measurement solutions which help save them time, money and resources.”
