Invensys Completes Cimnet Acquisition

Invensys (www.invensys.com), the London-based automation systems conglomerate, announced on July 2 that it has completed the acquisition of Cimnet Inc., a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software company based in Robesonia, Pa., and that the company is now being fully integrated into the Wonderware software business unit (www.wonderware.com) of Invensys. The acquisition closed under the terms of the original agreement that was announced on May 3.

 Existing Cimnet offerings will continue to be made available and enhanced for customers under the Wonderware Factelligence and the Wonderware DNC Professional brands, the company said. In addition, the acquired MES technology offerings are being integrated with Invensys’ open industry standards-based ArchestrA technology to ensure rapid deployment and ease of use by the Invensys and Wonderware installed base.

Because other Invensys business units, such as Invensys Process Systems, are using the ArchestrA industrial service oriented architecture (SOA), the merged MES technologies resulting from the Cimnet acquisition will rapidly become part of those integrated offerings as well, Invensys said. This includes future offerings as part of InFusion, the company’s enterprise control system.
