Overall, we consider this to be an important step toward ensuring sustainable success for the Group in the future.” www.pepperl-fuchs.com Stemmer Imaging continues its international expansion strategy Stemmer Imaging confirms it has successfully concluded the acquisition of the Spanish group Infaimon S.L. today and is acquiring 100 % of the shares in the supplier of software and hardware for machine vision and robotics after approval of the transaction by all the relevant antitrust authorities. The machine vision specialist is now represented in all key European markets with local branch offices. With the acquisition, Stemmer Imaging is also underscoring the strategic importance of state-of-the-art bin-picking solutions, an important capability in the context of Industry 4.0 applications which will further stengthen the company’s product and service portfolio. www.stemmer-imaging.com 6 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES 4/2019
