The BOWE GROUP is a globally leading supplier of intelligent automation and IoT solutions along the entire internal value chain. The group of companies comprises activities and strong brands in the business areas of document and card processing as well as postal and intralogistics, including software solutions.
By acquiring a 70 % majority share in Optimus Sorter Holding B.V., a Dutch-based company specialising in sorting and conveyor systems for the logistics and postal industries, e-commerce providers as well as retailers and wholesalers, Böwe Systec successfully expanded its scope of activities in the past years and benefits from a booming global market. With the majority shareholding in the Swedish conveyor system specialist SGA Conveyor System AB, this business field was further expanded.
At the beginning of 2019, another majority shareholding was added to the division’s portfolio by acquiring a majority stake in the software specialist Red Ledge, whose automation solutions are used in postal and parcel sorting centres as well as in production and warehousing facilities.
Around 380 of the over 900 employees work at the company’s Augsburg-based headquarters, while the remaining employees work at one of the numerous sales and service companies based in Europe, Japan and the US as well as the production companies in the Netherlands and Sweden.
