Molex acquires Soligie
Molex Incorporated, a global manufacturer of complete interconnect solutions with headquarters in Lisle (IL) USA, has announced the acquisition of certain assets of Soligie, Inc. The Minnesota-based company specialises in printed and flexible electronic solutions for applications in medical, military, industrial, lighting and consumer goods. Products range from sensor systems, medical wearables, LED lighting, specialised RFID labels, and devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT).
The strategic acquisition of Soligie’s business complements Molex’ printed circuit-based solutions, including membrane switches, polymer thick film circuits, copper flex circuits and printed circuit board assemblies. “Soligie’s business expands our capabilities in the high-growth field of printed electronics,” said Todd Hester, vice president and general manager, Molex Printed Circuit Products business unit. “With this acquisition, we can deliver a more comprehensive set of technologies and expertise for creating higher value, innovative electronic solutions.”
Soligie is reported to bring to Molex innovative design services, process development, prototype fabrication, product development and a range of printing platforms for high precision, high volume roll-to-roll printed electronic manufacturing. These technologies enable the development of custom proprietary solutions that are said to be cost-effective for customers and contain fewer components.
