Data Vision, a business unit of Batenburg Mechatronica B.V., is one of the most established brands in Benelux’s imaging and machine vision industry and has been successfully providing machine vision components, systems and solutions for many years.
“The acquisition by STEMMER IMAGING is the logical next step in serving this market segment“, says Harm Hanekamp, managing director of Data Vision. “By being part of the STEMMER IMAGING-Group, Data Vision will reach the next level and we can now follow our customers into Europe and benefit from STEMMER IMAGING’s larger product range, and superior level of competence. Our corporate cultures are very similar and we know each other very well. This will strengthen services available for customers in the Benelux countries who will have access to the support and security they need to continue to develop their vision applications with our help”, concludes Harm Hanekamp.

Dietmar Serbée, Director of STEMMER IMAGING B.V. emphasizes the growth opportunities of the combined entity. ”STEMMER IMAGING’s and Data Vision’s product portfolio have a high degree of overlap in terms of suppliers represented. Thus, the businesses perfectly complement each other.”
According to Mr. Serbée, machine vision components manufacturers will also greatly benefit from the merger: “The acquisition of Data Vision by STEMMER IMAGING is also beneficial for our suppliers, due to the doubling of the sales and support workforce through a competent partner with a high degree of market know-how and technical expertise. As one of Europe’s largest imaging technology providers, this enables us to support the technological developments of our manufacturers even better for the benefit of our customers.”
STEMMER IMAGING has been one of the leaders in the machine vision market since 1987. It is one of Europe's largest technology providers in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 80,000 imaging applications in various industries.
