Cinia Oy, a provider of high-availability network and software solutions, has acquired entire share capital of the Finnish company NDC Networks Oy. The deal strengthens Cinia’s wireless connectivity solution offering and brings further expertise for industrial internet solutions.
NDC Networks is Finland’s leading industrial connectivity solution provider. The company specialises in developing data transmission services and IoT solutions for demanding environments, such as heavy industry, energy sector, transport and logistics, defence and security.
“Industrial internet solutions require sensors and analytics, but also carefully implemented connections for collecting data. NDC has this knowledge and now, together with Cinia, we can offer our customers more versatile solutions”, says NDC Networks CEO Markus Ahonen.
The acquisition increases Cinia’s expertise in developing IoT solutions for demanding environments.
“Cinia and NDC share the same values and the same attitude to customer service. Combining our expertise creates a key player in the rapidly growing IoT market that is carefully attentive to customer needs”, promises Cinia CEO Ari-Jussi Knaapila.
The industrial Internet is also significantly exploited outside of the manufacturing industry. Individual IoT solutions are needed in demanding sectors, such as the energy industry. They increase the reliability and availability of digital business operations. Developing solutions for demanding and critical environments requires listening to customers and carefully tailored work.
“We are at our best in the field of reliable IoT connections, whether it’s a city-based wireless network or a remote connection to Australia. When the connections work seamlessly and our work is invisible, we have succeeded. In fact, things do not work without someone taking care of them with a professional touch, and that’s what makes this so interesting”, Ahonen says.
The acquisition comes into effect on 1 February 2020. NDC Networks will continue as a company, and the acquisition does not affect its personnel or customer accounts.
