The base technology IPC@CHIP® is the core of Beck IPC’s product offering for industrial OEMs. Beck’s portfolio also includes the comprehensive com.tom® edge gateway series with the associated cloud portal, targeting IIoT applications within factory and process automation.

The purchase price amounts to EUR 5 million on a cash-free/debt-free basis and is paid in cash. Depending on Beck IPC GmbH reaching certain defined financial targets, an additional EUR 2 million may become payable in 2020. Beck IPC GmbH is expected to have net sales of EUR 6-7 million in 2018.
