Multi-national conglomerate Honeywell has acquired Datamax-O'Neil, a global manufacturer of fixed and mobile printers used in a variety of retail, warehouse and distribution, and health care applications, in a $185 million deal.
Building on existing printing capabilities acquired with Intermec, the acquisition of Datamax-O'Neil's product portfolio augments Honeywell's ability to deliver enhanced workflow performance, and positions Honeywell Scanning & Mobility to expand even further in the $1.5 billion global barcode printing segment, the company said in a press statement.
"Honeywell and Datamax-O'Neil has joined together to meet and exceed the needs of our combined customers while staking out a leadership role in the estimated $1.5 billion global barcode printing segment. We've been at the forefront of the AIDC industry for more than 40 years - helping customers be more efficient in how they move and track assets from one location to another, and process the information related to those transactions," said John Waldron, president, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.
"Thermal printing and media are important components of our strategy to offer customers one of the industry's broadest portfolios of ruggedized mobile computers, scanners, voice-enabled workflow solutions, printing, software and service capabilities," he further added.
Datamax-O'Neil will be integrated with Honeywell Scanning & Mobility based in Fort Mill, South Carolina, a business of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions.
