HMS Networks acquires a majority of Procentec

02 October 2020

HMS Industrial Networks AB has acquired 70% of all shares in the Dutch company Procentec B.V. which offers solutions and services for diagnostics and monitoring of industrial networks.

Procentec’s offering ensures reliable network infrastructure for industrial networks such as PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and other industrial Ethernet standards. Its product range includes ProfiTrace, ProfiHub, ComBricks, Atlas and Osiris which help field technicians perform network monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting in an easy way – on site in factories as well as remotely, preventing undesired manufacturing downtime. 

“Procentec fills a gap in the HMS´ offering within communication infrastructure. Industrial networks are vital in industrial processes, and Procentec’s products and services improve uptime and data availability significantly in these critical networks,” said Staffan Dahlström, CEO of HMS Networks, and continues “With Procentec, HMS gets access to an aftermarket business related to the huge installed base of industrial networks globally, positioning HMS much closer to the end users of industrial networks. This is a very interesting new dimension for HMS given the fact that we today mainly supply products to device manufacturers and machine builders”.

The 70% share in Procentec was acquired by HMS from the founders, who are no longer active in the company.  The remaining 30% is owned by the existing management team, who will keep their management positions and continue running the Procentec business.
