Web-based software solutions company acquired
HMS Industrial Networks AB has acquired 74.9% of all shares in WEBfactory GmbH, a provider of web-based software solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). WEBfactory which released its first software in 2000, is a well-established software company with customers worldwide. It is primarily known for its i4 suite of software products. The i4 portfolio addresses IIoT-related customer challenges such as data collection, analysis and visualization.
“With WEBfactory, we add a very competent and future proof software dimension to HMS’ offering for IIoT,” said Staffan Dahlström, CEO of HMS Networks. “The i4 software products will enable a straightforward path for HMS’ customers and partners to realize truly smart manufacturing and services. We are also excited about the synergies that can be achieved by using our Anybus, Ixxat, Ewon and Intesis hardware products to feed data to the i4 suite from devices and machines in manufacturing sites and buildings.”
WEBfactory GmbH, including its fully owned subsidiary in Romania, employs 27 people. The deal is expected to close on April 1, 2019.
