SVS-Vistek GmbH is acquiring 100% of the shares in Mikrotron GmbH with retroactive effect from January 1, 2022. The two camera manufacturers belong to the parent company TKH Vision and offer their customers new synergies through the merger with a focus on high-performance high-end cameras with high-speed and high-resolution.
Through the integrative merger of Mikrotron and SVS-Vistek under the umbrella of TKH Vision, the two companies are combining their strengths and competencies and placing their camera expertise on a strong entrepreneurial footing. The partnership is intended to open up new market segments and create the conditions for further growth.
Founded in 1976, Mikrotron is internationally known in the machine vision market as a manufacturer of small and particularly robust high-speed cameras as well as high-speed recording systems. The company's digital high-speed cameras with outstanding technical performance features, for example in terms of image resolution and light sensitivity, are used in industrial and scientific applications as well as in the field of sports.
SVS-Vistek has been established in machine vision for 35 years and is one of the world's most innovative manufacturers of industrial cameras, a reliable supplier of individual components and a specialist for customized system solutions in machine vision. Due to the complete production of its cameras at the German headquarters in Gilching, SVS-Vistek has the possibility to react extremely fast and flexible to customer specific requirements.
The merger is intended to bring together the many years of experience of the more than 90 employees for the benefit of the customers of both companies and thus play relevant future topics in the field of image processing along networked supply chains and across sectors in their entire breadth. Mikrotron and SVS-Vistek have complementary product portfolios that, when combined, will now open up even more comprehensive opportunities for customers. The new line-up is expected to create synergies for the development and deployment of high-end cameras in particular, which stand out from the competition in terms of speed and resolution. Mikrotron's and SVS-Vistek's proven innovative development performance, high standard of manufacturing and stringent quality controls ensure that the cameras meet the highest standards of quality and reliability.
All existing Mikrotron employees will find their place within the merged company and will help the future SVS-Vistek grow at the joint location in Gilching. Mikrotron cameras will continue to be developed, produced, distributed and supported under the well-known Mikrotron brand by the expanded SVS-Vistek team.
