Böwe Systec has signed an agreement to take a majority stake in Red Ledge, a software company based in the UK. From March Red Ledge will officially become a part of the Group.
Yorkshire-based Red Ledge was founded in 1996. It specializes in Auto-ID solutions and its barcode, RFID, voice and sensor technologies are used successfully around the world in post and parcel sorting centres, warehouses and production facilities. Core expertise includes competitive software platforms such as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Warehouse Control Systems (WCS) and serialization solutions.
The acquisition of Red Ledge is an important milestone for Böwe Systec as a leading supplier of smart automation solutions. “As a ‘one-stop-shop’ we want to be the first port of call for all our customers’ intralogistics requirements,” stresses Joachim Koschier, Managing Director of Böwe Systec. “They should be able to source everything from us that they need to optimize their parcel sorting centre and their internal processes. From goods receiving to goods out—everything from one supplier. The acquisition of Red Ledge was therefore a logical step and is a cornerstone of our corporate strategy.”
