Digi International, Minnetonka, Minn., acquired SMART Temps, a Mishawaka, Ind.-based provider of real-time foodservice temperature management for restaurant, grocery, education and hospital settings.

The acquired SMART Temps technology will be leveraged within Digi's existing products and services to expand its advanced portfolio of products for the cold chain market.

"In addition to strengthening our leadership position in the foodservice industry, this acquisition provides Digi with a strategic entry point into the education and healthcare markets," says Ron Konezny, president and CEO, Digi International. "Our objective is to identify the best ideas and technologies across our cold chain portfolio to bring the most advanced solutions to market."

The SMART Temps team, led by CEO John Miller, delivers more than 50 years of experience in bringing wireless temperature monitoring solutions to various foodservice environments. SMART Temps' educational solution provides menu integration capabilities, which decreases the time it takes to perform manual temperature tasks.

"Our two companies together will bring industry-leading technology to market, so that our customers can be assured of the highest level of safety for their food and healthcare monitoring," says Miller. "We are excited to be part of Digi's growing leadership in temperature monitoring, and look forward to continuing to expand our service offerings."
