The sale of Veeco Instruments’ metrology business, which includes its facility in Goleta, closed on Oct. 8, the company announced.

Massachusetts-based Bruker Corp. now owns the metrology unit, which includes offices in Goleta and Tuscon, Ariz., and will combine it with its Bruker Nano division. The company paid $229.4 million in cash in the deal, which was announced in August.

The Goleta facility was once Digitial Instruments, a company founded by UC Santa Barbara Professor Virgil Elings. Veeco bought Digital Instruments in 1998.

Bruker has not disclosed its plans for the Goleta facility.
