KOTEM History

KOTEM started in 1992 as a software company that specialized in dimensional metrology. Over the first several years the company won contracts with measurement machine manufacturers to develop private labeled (OEM), metrologically correct software. The company also sold its software directly to manufacturers of tight tolerance parts that required the best software tools.

As the business grew our team grew, from the original three founders to a skilled team of more than 30 people.

Became part of QVI

In 2005 KOTEM became a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Vision International Inc. (QVI®), a leading supplier of multisensor CMMs for industrial quality control. QVI is a 75 year-old private company with headquarters in Rochester, New York, USA.

Under QVI leadership KOTEM has expanded our headquarters in Budapest, Hungary and developed a worldwide sales and support team.

Today KOTEM is a world-leading expert in GD&T evaluation, best fitting, and assembly analysis. Our products comply with recognized standards. Several KOTEM employees serve as members of the ISO/TC213 GPS and ASME B89.7 committees which establish worldwide standards for dimensioning and tolerancing.


KOTEM has always demanded the highest expertise and cross-disciplinary capabilities of our employees. Today we have expertise in metrology, mathematics, and computer sciences, with the majority of our employees having either MSc or Ph.D degrees.

“We always developed our software for the most demanding applications and we enjoy solving difficult metrology problems.” – Kostadin Doytchinov -KOTEM Founder
