Data Vision, a business unit of Batenburg Mechatronica B.V., has been providing machine vision components, systems and solutions for many years, and the acquisition strengthens the position of Stemmer Imaging in the Benelux countries.

Says Data Vision MD Harm Hanekamp: “The acquisition by Stemmer Imaging is the logical next step in serving this market segment.

“By being part of the Stemmer Imaging Group, Data Vision will reach the next level and we can now follow our customers into Europe and benefit from Stemmer Imaging’s larger product range, and superior level of competence.

“Our corporate cultures are very similar and we know each other very well. This will strengthen services available for customers in the Benelux countries who will have access to the support and security they need to continue to develop their vision applications with our help.”

Adds Stemmer Imaging B.V. director Dietmar Serbée: “Stemmer Imaging’s and Data Vision’s product portfolio have a high degree of overlap in terms of suppliers represented. Thus, the businesses perfectly complement each other.

“The acquisition of Data Vision by Stemmer Imaging is also beneficial for our suppliers, due to the doubling of the sales and support workforce through a competent partner with a high degree of market know-how and technical expertise. As one of Europe’s largest imaging technology providers, this enables us to support the technological developments of our manufacturers even better for the benefit of our customers.”
