TES America LLC, a company in the touch solutions market, announces the acquisition of certain assets of 3M Touch Systems, a subsidiary of 3M Company. 3M Touch Systems specialises in Surface Capacitive (SCT) and Projected Capacitive (PCAP) components and displays for commercial applications in industries as diverse as casino gaming, medical equipment, public kiosks, collaboration tables and financial transactions.
The purchase enhances the current TES touch component and monitor portfolio while offering continued support to current 3M Touch Systems customers.
“We look forward to embracing 3M’s customers and providing them the consistent 3M touch solution they have come to expect. With our vast knowledge of touch sensor engineering, manufacturing, and systems capabilities, our key objective is to seamlessly integrate 3M’s touch offerings and support all our customers towards new levels of success,” stated Mark Littlefield, TES America President.
The sale of assets is expected to be completed by the end of December 2020. TES plans to maintain all existing 3M Touch products as well as continued support and expansion of the MicroTouch brand of touch monitors.
“By combining the strength of 3M Touch Systems’ brand with the touch industry innovation and factory-direct product of TES, we will be able to offer customers not only a broad product mix of components, monitors and touch computers, but also greater efficiency and flexibility through our regional engineering, local customer support and global warehousing capabilities,” said Gene Halsey, TES America General Manager.
