Leyard / Planar to acquire Eyevis, expand European footprint
“This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to further geographic expansion and investment, specifically in Western Europe,” said Marco Bruines, CEO of Leyard EMEA, in a statement. “It’s a great opportunity to bring together Leyard, Planar and Eyevis’ strengths and resources in customer service and distribution to build the world’s leading visual solution products for our existing customers and new markets.”
Eyevis is a provider of displays and integration services for broadcast applications, among a larger market presence.
“We are excited about integrating into a larger corporate environment and the enhanced possibilities for further development and sales opportunities. It will provide a path for future growth and bring stability to our partners and customers after the strenuous times Eyevis has experienced in recent months,” said Heiko Schaich, Eyevis’s CTO.
The acquisition is expected to close in quarter two of 2018.
