Lakesight Technologies Holding, Italy, acquired Chromasens GmbH.
Based in Konstanz, Germany, Chromasens maintains core expertise in line-scan technology for the production of cameras, lights and custom imaging solutions. Chromasens has 60 employees, the majority of which are in R&D, and is led by managing directors Markus Schnitzlein and Martin Hund, both who have been reconfirmed in their positions.
Chromasens’ acquisition provides Lakesight with a complementary portfolio of line-scan machine vision cameras and access to 3D and hyperspectral technologies. In addition, Chromasens will strengthen the innovation capabilities of Lakesight and contribute a rich portfolio of blue chip OEM customers.
“We are pleased to join Lakesight, which we see as a strong partner that can sustain Chromasens in our next phase of development,” says Schnitzlein.
“As part of Lakesight, we will continue our growth path through investment in new technologies, developing projects with blue-chip customers and expanding our international sales leveraging Lakesight’s resources and sales network,” adds Hund.
“The acquisition of Chromasens fits perfectly with the Lakesight portfolio, as it is complementary on all levels to the existing group members,” says Corrado Franchi, board member of Lakesight. “Furthermore, the fact that the Chromasens management stays on board ensures stability and continuity.”
