Advised Telesis Technologies on its sale to Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems

Capstone Partners (IMAP USA) advised Telesis Technologies, Inc. (Telesis)—a global industrial technology leader of AI vision system-based laser and dot peen automation systems for permanent marking applications—on its sale to Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Co., Ltd. (HIES). Telesis was a portfolio company of Crimson Investments and Bertram Capital Management. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.


Telesis Technologies is a leading turnkey marking solutions provider that fully integrates proprietary laser and dot peen marking systems with robotics and automation applications. Telesis offers the industry’s broadest product portfolio utilizing proprietary laser, dot peen, vision, and artificial intelligence (“AI”) technologies with automation and engineering capabilities and enjoys one of the largest installed bases of marking systems across multiple end markets.


For more than 40 years, HIES has successfully developed its Coding and Marking Business with Continuous Inkjet Printing technology, to serve a variety of product identification needs in Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, Pharmaceutical, Electronic and Automotive parts industries in well over 110 countries worldwide.


Increasing demand for precise, indelible coding and more environmentally friendly products expands the business opportunities for a wider range of coding technology, in particular laser and dot peen markers. HIES will seek to implement Telesis’ proprietary AI and software technology across its own install base of inkjet printers, while further expanding its laser and dot peen marking product portfolio.
