Belgian firm acquires SA’s ProScan Group

8th July 2011 By: Mary-Anne O’Donnell

Supply chain, automated data collection and mobile computing technologies specialist the ProScan group has been acquired by Belgium-based automatic identification solutions company Zetes Industries.

The group comprises three companies – ProScan Mobility, ProScan Media and iData Distribution – that focus on deliv- ering technologies, services and solutions to the retail, fast-moving consumer goods, transport and logistics, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, services and utilities industries either directly or through accredited channel partners.
The transaction became effec- tive from July and ProScan group MD Andrew Fosbook, who will continue to head the group, says, because of the importance of the global group, ProScan will rebrand to Zetes Proscan and will consist of a mobile and media division.

The iData Distribution com- pany will retain its name and continue trading independently.
