Tire Technology Expo exhibitor FineLine Technologies has acquired Ferm RFID Solutions, a Netherlands-based provider of RFID systems.
As part of FineLine’s strategy to meet the identification needs of today’s global supply chains, this acquisition enables it to offer a complete range of barcode and RFID-enabled tire labeling solutions to customers.
“This acquisition, combined with our recent acquisition of Data2, now enables us to distribute Ferm’s comprehensive array of RFID labeling solutions via our global service bureau,” said FineLine chairman and CEO George Hoffman.
Products developed by Ferm RFID include RFID tread labels to trace individual tires from quality control through to the point of sale; RFID vulcanizing labels for tracking and tracing within production logistics; labels that can be used to automatically identify tires through the supply chain, including bulk reading; and many more.
Ferm RFID Solutions co-founder Jos Uijlenbroek said, “We have developed highly successful RFID solutions that meet the needs of our clients in the tire industry, and with FineLine’s FASTtrak platform we can now effectively distribute these to our clients anywhere in the world.”
The two companies will be exhibiting at stands 9090 and 9022. Make sure you’re in Hannover February 20-22.
