Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Acquires Telesis Technologies

Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Expands product portfolio and North America operation with acquisition of Telesis Technologies, Inc.

Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Co., Ltd. (“HIES”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today announced its acquisition of Telesis Technologies, Inc. (“Telesis”), a U.S. company engaged in the manufacture and sale of marking equipment using laser technologies.

“Telesis is known for its state-of-the-art laser marking technologies, and this acquisition will allow us to expand and enhance our product portfolio as we accelerate our efforts of becoming an industry-leading solutions provider,” said Yasuhiro (Charlie) Takeuchi, President of Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Co., Ltd. “We look forward to leveraging the combined strengths of HIES and Telesis to further penetrate the global coding and marking industry.”

Telesis has more than 160 employees globally. The company has a development center and manufacturing facility, along with engineering, sales and maintenance service bases, in the United States. It also has manufacturing, sales and service bases in China and sales and service bases in Europe.

For more than 40 years, Telesis has developed, manufactured and sold marking equipment. The company provides a range of coding and marking technologies. It has one of the largest global market shares in dot-peen markers, devices that print letters by striking pins, which are often used in the aerospace and automotive industries. Telesis also offers industry-leading laser technology used to print dates, lot numbers and other information on items produced in the food and beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, consumer product goods and electronic industries. With this acquisition, HIES can accelerate the global expansion of its marking equipment business.

The acquisition of Telesis builds on HIES’s April 2022 acquisition of Germany-based Photon Energy GmbH*1 to further strengthen HIES’s coding and marking business. Recent years have shown strong demand for high-definition and indelible printing worldwide, and business opportunities for marking equipment using laser technology (i.e., laser markers) are steadily growing.


“We’re pleased to be a part of the next phase of Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems,” said Dr. Ashot Mesropyan, Telesis Executive Chariman.

Mesropyan, adds, “The company is a great fit for our global portfolio of marking solutions, and we look forward to putting our combined industry expertise and global resources to work for our customers.”
