American Chopper’s Paul Jr. to Appear at FARO’s SEMA Booth


Lake Mary, FL (September 2, 2011) – FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world’s leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions has announced that Paul Teutul Jr. – “Paul Jr.” – owner of Paul Jr. Designs and star of the Discovery Channel’s American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior will be appearing in their booth for photos and autographs at SEMA. In January, Paul Junior Designs completed work on a custom, FARO-themed chopper to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary. Teutul’s appearance comes on the heels of FARO’s feature on Discovery’s hit series and the release of the company’s newest measurement arm, the Edge.


“Paul Junior Designs is a long-time FARO customer,” explained Kimberly Roman, FARO’s Director of Marketing. “It made great sense to have Paul Jr. appear at this important show and allow attendees to take photos with him and the bike he built for us. It’s a great fit.” SEMA runs from November 1-4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. FARO Technologies will be exhibiting at booth #10142. Paul Jr. will be available from 2pm to 4pm on November 3rd for photos with the FARO chopper. FARO will also feature its innovative products at the show including the all-new FARO Laser Line Probe (LLP), which adds non-contact measurement capabilities to the company’s revolutionary Edge measurement arm. Weighing just 2.8 oz, the LLP integrates seamlessly with the FARO Edge via the device’s quick-change handle port to form the complete Edge ScanArm solution.
