Basler completes merger of Silicon Software
Silicon Software GmbH has been merged into Basler AG. Basler had acquired Silicon Software in 2018 and managed it as an independent GmbH within the group structure. Functions such as production, logistics, sales and technical support were already merged shortly after the acquisition, and other functional areas followed step by step. The integration of both companies under company law now completes this process.
CEO Dr. Dietmar Ley, who was also managing director of Silicon Software, explains: "The employees of both companies have been working so closely together since the acquisition that the step to legally unite both companies under the name Basler AG feels very natural and logical. We are very pleased to have a location in Mannheim with such experienced and qualified colleagues, to continue to grow together and to develop exciting offerings for the computer vision market under the Basler brand."
With the acquisition of Silicon Software GmbH, Basler had complementarily expanded its portfolio with the product areas frame grabbers and software (VisualApplets). The acquisition was a step to support the growth strategy of Basler AG and in particular to implement it in the direction of the performance segment of the computer vision market. With the merger, the product areas frame grabbers/interface cards and VisualApplets will be managed under the Basler brand and the portfolio will be further expanded.
