Indianapolis-based enVista LLC, a software and consulting company specializing in physical and digital commerce, has acquired HCM Systems. The Chicago company designs and provides service on conveyor systems, robotics and operating controls used in distribution centers and manufacturing.
enVista says HCM is one of the most diversified leaders in complete material handling integration with an extensive range of automated solutions. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Demand for automated solutions has never been greater due to surging ecommerce demands, coupled with ongoing labor shortages. enVista and HCM’s combined expertise across process optimization, labor management, facility design, engineering, robotics and systems selection and implementation will optimize manufacturing and distribution operations and accelerate time to value,” said Mike Kasperski, senior vice president of automation at enVista.
Described as “long-time partners,” the companies say the deal will bring added value to their customers.
“This move will bring added value to our HCM client base that will benefit from a single solutions partner to solve their complex supply chain and commerce challenges,” said Charlie Hillebold, president of HCM Systems, whose grandfather founded the company in 1962. “I’m excited for what the future holds for our combined organizations.”
