Companies Will Combine Forces to Automate Warehouse and Factory Customers
Westfield, Indiana – June 30th, 2017
EMP Tech Group, headquartered in Westfield, Indiana, has acquired eSolutions, based in Lafayette, Indiana. Founded in 2005, EMP Tech Group specializes in data collection and automation mainly for the warehouse and factory floor. eSolutions was founded in 2002 and has the same basic business model as EMP. eSolutions’ office in Lafayette and its employees will be retained as part of the EMP Tech Group.
Dave Mattingly, president of the EMP Tech Group, says “We are very excited to be combining forces with eSolutions. This acquisition perfectly complements our existing sales and technical service teams. As a combined company, we now have even more products and capabilities to best serve our customers. This acquisition will create new opportunities for our existing team members and will help us continue our growth, which will result in new hires.” Greg Hilbert, president of eSolutions, says he is, “Excited to be a part of a larger customer focused company and how that will benefit our employees and customers.”
EMP Tech Group serves approximately 1,700 customers across North America while eSolutions serves around 400 customers in the same geography. Overlap of existing customers is very minimal, enabling the combined company to serve over 2,000 customers. Current eSolutions sales and technical services personnel will remain in place, both in Lafayette, IN and the greater Chicago area. This allows for the expansion of sales and technical support for existing and new customers in Northern Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin.
Additionally, the acquisition will provide EMP Tech Group with the Microscan line of industrial barcode scanners and machine vision systems. Microscan is a leader in the field of factory, machine and instrumentation automation. EMP Tech Group sales and technical services personnel will be dedicated to selling and integrating Microscan products.
