Honeywell continue to build on its leadership in the barcode scanning and mobility industry after the acquisition of EMS Technologies.
As part of the acquisition, the LXE business, of which Sandpiper was a Premier Partner, will be integrated into Honeywell Scanning & Mobility which was formed in 2008, following Honeywell's acquisition of two leading manufacturers of automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) solutions, Handheld Products and Metrologic Instruments.
EMS’s GRM division offered a broad range of solutions for supply chain logistics, mobile workforce management, and remote asset monitoring applications, supported by hundreds of partners worldwide. EMS’s proven mobile resource management solutions included LXE branded rugged handheld and vehicle mounted computers featuring multiple radio technologies and satellite based global tracking and monitoring solutions for cargo, fleet assets, and personnel.
“This is another terrific transaction for our Scanning and Mobility business,” said Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Roger Fradin. “EMS strengthens our core mobile computing business and expands our addressable market with complementary new products, channel partners, and entry into the warehousing and port segments that we believe will be growth drivers for the business.
Since the acquisition, Sandpiper has been appointed as a Top Level H1 Honeywell Partner.
