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

Sept. 21, 2011, for photos with the FARO chopper and autographs

Published: Friday, September 9, 2011 - 12:25

(FARO Technologies: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., a global provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, has announced that Paul Teutul Jr., owner of Paul Jr. Designs and star of the Discovery Channel’s American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, will be appearing in the FARO booth for photos and autographs at Quality Expo.

In January 2011, Paul Jr. 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 Jr. Designs is a valued FARO customer and talented motorcycle fabricator,” explains Kimberly Roman, FARO’s director of marketing. “It made great sense to have Paul Jr. to 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.”

Quality Expo, which runs Sept. 20–22, 2011, at Chicago’s McCormick Place, is a biannual show that provides hands-on access to the newest tools and technologies to help manufacturers and engineers ensure quality and reduce costs.

FARO Technologies will be exhibiting at booth No. 1000. Paul Jr. will be available from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. CDT on Sept. 21, 2011, for photos with the FARO chopper and autographs. FARO will also feature each of its innovative products at the show, including the all-new FARO Laser Line Probe (LLP), which adds noncontact measurement capabilities to the company’s revolutionary Edge measurement arm.
