Matthews International, based in Pittsburgh, has acquired Holjeron,
of Wilsonville, Ore., an industrial controls manufacturer and
supplier to Matthew's marking products division.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Matthews, Holjeron will be managed
by the marking products division, which plans to develop new turnkey
marking products, incorporating the level of product control,
traceability and material handling made possible by Holjeron's
"With more and more customers requiring turnkey solutions,
not simply better marking equipment, this acquisition gives us
the ability to sell into those applications," said Brian
Dunn, president of Matthews, marking products division.
According to Dunn, Holjeron's technology provides precise material
handling and tracking with fewer parts and less wiring, while
being more energy-efficient and quiet.
