How Did Honeywell Enter the Barcode Scanner Market?
In 2007, Honeywell Technologies Inc. made a significant move in the field of mobile data collection and industrial computing by acquiring the well-known company Hand Held Products for $390 million. Hand Held Products was established in 1981 and was one of the world’s largest imager technology-based barcode scanners manufacturers.
The successful acquisition allowed Honeywell Technologies Inc. to take advantage of Hand Held Product’s long-standing expertise in developing and producing advanced scanning solutions. This allowed Honeywell Technologies Inc. to begin producing their own barcode scanners and enter a competitive market that was already dominated by more established manufacturers.
Later, in 2008, Honeywell Technologies Inc. made another significant acquisition when it purchased Metrologic Instruments for approximately $720 million. Metrologic Instruments was founded in 1968 and has flourished in the field of laser scanning, mobile imaging and remote scanning. At the time of the acquisition, Metrologic Instruments had over 350 registered patents and an additional 130 patents pending.
The acquisition of Metrologic Instruments was another significant step forward for Honeywell to expand their scope and access new technologies that would help them stay ahead of the competition.
In 2011, Honeywell acquired EMS (Electromagnetic Sciences Inc) Technologies for approximately $491 million. EMS Technologies was established in 1968 and had four major divisions EMS Aviation, EMS Defense & Space, LXE and EMS Global Tracking. The LXE division manufactured vehicle-mounted, rugged, handheld, and wearable mobile computers that were eventually added to Honeywell’s barcode reader product line.
In 2013, Honeywell made a major move forward in the automated identification and data capture industry by purchasing Intermec for an estimated $600 million. Intermec was founded in 1966 and was a renowned supplier of equipment such as barcode scanners, printers, mobile computers, RFID systems, voice recognition systems, and life-cycle services.
The impressive array of products combined with Intermec’s ownership of patents in RFID technology enabled them to attract large Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies that accounted for 75% and 60%, respectively, of their customer base.
By acquiring Intermec, Honeywell was able to bolster its already extensive product portfolio by adding RFID technology, voice recognition systems and life-cycle services. Honeywell also gained access to Intermec’s impressive customer portfolio, significantly increasing its annualised sales and market share in the automated identification and data capture industry. Overall, Honeywell’s acquisition of Intermec has proven to be a successful strategic move that has paid off significantly.
In 2015, Honeywell acquired Datamax-O’Neil for $185 Million. Datamax-O’Neil was founded in 1977 and is a well-known barcode label printer manufacturer. The takeover of Datamax-O’Neil provided Honeywell with its software Movilizer and its impressive customer base. The acquisition brought considerable success to Honeywell in terms of revenue growth and market share expansion.
