SATO America Acquires Achernar of Argentina

Maker of barcode printing, labeling and EPC/RFID solutions gains privately held adhesive labeling firm based in South America.

Tokyo-based SATO, global maker of barcode printing, labeling and EPC/RFID solutions, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Achernar of Argentina, a privately held corporation based in Buenos Aires that makes adhesive labeling solutions. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
 
"The acquisition of Achernar further illustrates our ongoing commitment to the South Cone region of South America with best in breed for labeling and identification solutions," said Bob Linse, president of SATO America (www.satoamerica.com), based in Charlotte, N.C. "Our acquisition of NODOS in 2010 and now Achernar strengthens our business model of DCS and Labeling in the region. We welcome Achernar to the SATO team."

Achernar provides specialty labels for the food, fruit, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, electronic, lubricant, and postal service industries. As an industry leading supplier to the region’s most renowned brands in its market, Achernar manufactures a wide range of labels including prime, promotional, variable information, security, and high durability label solutions, said Linse.

Maria Olcese, general manager of Achernar, said, "Achernar will assuredly continue to thrive after its acquisition by SATO as both corporations share a cultural and strategic fit.  With this action we heighten our abilities and growth opportunities across the region, and by harnessing the passion and dedication of our employees, we build upon the trust and confidence our customers have entrusted to us," said
