SATO, a provider of automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) technology in the form of barcode printing, labeling and EPC/RFID solutions, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire NODOS S.A., a privately held corporation based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. NODOS is an integrator of AIDC and point-of-sale (POS) solutions. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
In 1993, NODOS strategically decided to make SATO products its main product line based on product reliability and support and their systems integration expertise. The NODOS team will continue to sell and service SATO solutions through an extensive channel of established partners.
The acquisition creates a collaborative platform in the region with many manufacturers of AIDC technologies to deploy end-to-end solutions that integrate with enterprise, warehouse, medical and supply chain applications. NODOS will merge its software and hardware applications with SATO’s worldwide operations to support the joint development of new products for multiple industries and further SATO’s presence in the region.
