HMS Industrial Networks AB has signed an agreement to acquire the Belgium-based company eWon SA, an IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) manufacturer of intelligent Internet-based remote access routers. The acquisition is intended to widen HMS's customer base and their presence for remote management of programmable logic controllers (PLCs). eWon will become an IIoT brand for HMS and will encompass all HMS's solutions for connecting machines across the Internet. The acquisition will also give HMS access to eWon's distribution network in Europe and North America and adds around 15 development engineers to HMS's total R&D resources. The extended R&D resources are expected to increase flexibility, generating opportunities to develop new solutions in the area of remote management. eWON was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Nivelles, Belgium and has subsidiaries in the United States and Japan.
