FARO Technologies – Why Work With Us?

FARO® had its start in a friendship between two self-proclaimed “tech-junkies” working on their PhDs in biomedical engineering at McGill University in Montreal. Simon Raab and Greg Fraser founded Res-Tech on February 21, 1981, the name was changed to FARO two years later when they began developing technology and software to support advanced surgical and diagnostic methods. In 1993 they repositioned the Company to focus on the industrial space.
