With Option to Full Acquisition
Greenville, SC, Unites States, and Eindhoven, Netherlands
DECIDE4ACTION™, a leading manufacturing software company, announces it has acquired a minority participation in FullFact Solutions, a leading overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) software company. This follows the prior announcement of the cooperation agreement signed in November 2020. The deal also includes provisions for DECIDE4ACTION to complete a full acquisition of FullFact Solutions. This acquisition will allow the entire product line of DECIDE4ACTION to be available to clients of FullFact Solutions.
Richard Bergeron, CEO of DECIDE4ACTION says: “This acquisition is strategic for both companies since PRODUCTION4ACTION represents a natural evolution for OEEblue and OEE Toolkit by providing browser-based user-interface (UI//UX), integration with complementary products, and an OPC UA server to communicate with all plant equipment. It also adds a worldwide presence to DECIDE4ACTION.”
Max Marinissen, Managing Director of FullFact: “This partnership will boost the value for our customer base: we will jointly build a stronger business proposition with complementary productivity solutions on state-of-the-art technology and with more software delivery options (onsite, cloud and SaaS). With the software development capacity of DECIDE4ACTION, we can accelerate the delivery of new solutions. Both companies focus on similar markets which will enable us to bundle our knowledge, further grow our (inter)national presence and enhance global accounts support.”
