Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems has acquired Telesis Technologies
Telesis has more than 160 employees globally. The company has a development center and manufacturing facility, along with engineering, sales and maintenance service bases, in the United States. It also has manufacturing, sales and service bases in China and sales and service bases in Europe
For more than 40 years, Telesis has developed, manufactured and sold marking equipment. The company provides a range of coding and marking technologies. It has one of the largest global market shares in dot-peen markers, devices that print letters by striking pins, which are often used in the aerospace and automotive industries. Telesis also offers industry-leading laser technology used to print dates, lot numbers and other information on items produced in the food and beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, consumer product goods and electronic industries.
With this acquisition, Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems (HIES) can accelerate the global expansion of its marking equipment business. The acquisition of Telesis builds on HIES’ April 2022 acquisition of Germany-based Photon Energy GmbH to further strengthen HIES’ coding and marking business. Recent years have shown strong demand for high definition and indelible printing worldwide, and business opportunities for marking equipment using laser technology (i.e., laser markers) are steadily growing.
Telesis laser markers are highly complementary in technology to Photon Energy’s products, and the addition of Telesis dot-peen markers will expand HIES’ product lineup along with its inkjet printers. In addition, by utilizing Telesis’ sales channels, HIES expects to strengthen its sales capabilities for inkjet printers and expand its recurring business by integrating Telesis’ maintenance service capabilities, which Telesis has developed through its dot-peen and laser marker businesses.
“We’re pleased to be a part of the next phase of Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems,” said Dr. Ashot Mesropyan, Executive Chairman of Telesis. “The company is a great fit for our global portfolio of marking solutions, and we look forward to putting our combined industry expertise and global resources to work for our customers.”
