Milwaukee, Wisc. -Rockwell Automation has reached a definitive agreement to acquire the Safety and Automation business of CEDES AG. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
CEDESís Safety and Automation business supplies safety and measuring light curtains, as well as other safety and non-safety optoelectronics, control units and related accessories for industrial applications.
The CEDES Safety and Automation business is headquartered in Landquart, Switzerland with sales offices primarily across Europe. Rockwell is acquiring the business unit that includes products, technology, development engineering, marketing, sales and distribution to serve the industrial safety and automation markets.
Officials at Rockwell say the transaction is expected to be completed early in the second calendar quarter of 2008. After the acquisition is complete, customers can continue to purchase products through the current distribution network of CEDES' Safety and Automation business. As products become available under the Allen-Bradley brand, customers will also be able to purchase them through the Rockwell Automation distribution network.
