Datalogic, a provider of barcode readers, data collection mobile computers, RFID and vision systems, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Accu-Sort Systems, a supplier of automatic identification products, and certain affiliates of Accu-Sort Systems from certain subsidiaries of Danaher Corp. Terms were not announced.
“The acquisition of Accu-Sort will enable Datalogic to double its presence in the industrial automation market, a very fragmented sector, but one with high growth potential,” says Mauro Sacchetto, Datalogic Group chief executive officer.
Based in Telford, Pa., Accu-Sort employs about 250 employees and has one production factory in the United States, two research centers (one in the United States and one in Europe) and eight sales offices.
Datalogic says Accu-Sort’s strengths include its continuous product innovation (about 80 patents), long-term relationships with primary retailers, strong competitive positioning and high brand awareness in its key market, which will enable Datalogic to strengthen its presence in the transportation and logistics sector.
