EnVista Acquires HCM Systems to Expand Automation Capabilities

The service provider for distributors has added the material handling equipment, systems and robotics firm to meet growing market demand for automated solutions.

EnVista, an Indianapolis-based software, consulting, managed services and automation solutions firm whose customer base includes distributors, on Monday announced the acquisition of systems integrator HCM Systems, Chicago. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

HCM Systems “specializes in customized, complex and highly integrated conveyor hardware and software, controls, robotics, accessory equipment, installation and systems management for manufacturing and distribution-centric organizations.”

“Demand for automated solutions has never been greater due to surging ecommerce demands, coupled with ongoing labor shortages,” said Mike Kasperski, SVP of automation at enVista. “EnVista and HCM’s combined expertise across process optimization, labor management, facility design, engineering, robotics and systems selection and implementation will optimize manufacturing and distribution operations and accelerate time to value. This acquisition also strategically expands HCM’s and enVista’s global growth, client base and revenue opportunities.”
