Accellos Inc., provider of logistics, transportation, warehouse and mobile fleet management solutions, has been on an acquisition tear in Canada recently. It has taken on Toronto-based Radio Beacon Inc., a developer of warehouse management systems, and Headwater Technology Solutions, another Toronto-area company active in logistics and WMS solutions.
The Radio Beacon buy will expand Accellos's logistics capabilities and provide an opportunity to establish the combined company as a leader in the logistics, 3PL and WMS software market, says Mike Cornell, CEO of Accellos, Denver, Colo.
"Radio Beacon has an outstanding history of developing and integrating innovative warehouse management software solutions," Cornell said. "Their commitment to their high-quality employees, loyal customers and the growing reseller channel will help us expand our leadership in the growing WMS and logistics software market. We will combine Radio Beacon's established solutions with Accellos' capabilities, financial strength and expanding infrastructure."
Of the Headwater purchase, Cornell says: "Headwater has three product lines which will all be part of the foundation of our new offerings and we plan to expand these product lines both functionally and geographically."
