Beacon Controls and Dextralog merge18 September 2001
Beacon Controls and Dextralog have merged to form one company, BarcoVision Ltd. The two divisions have been merged in order to maximise potential and now form part of the global Barco Group who employ 4,800 people in 97 countries. The merger creates the UK's largest automation company specialising in the textile and leather sectors. As a result, the entire Beacon operation has been transferred to BarcoVision's existing premises in Blackburn. Sales manager Dave Robson says: 'This latest move ensures that both Sedo and Beacon products benefit from the focus, commitment and resources necessary to deliver sustained growth and, of course, best-in-class customer service.
