POSITAL is a member of the Fraba Group, which supplies technically advanced products and services for businesses worldwide. The parent company recently announced that it had sold its VITECTOR business unit to CEDES, which is a Swiss technology company that specializes in sensor systems for elevators, escalators, and industrial doors.
In selling off CEDES, which makes industrial door sensors, Fraba also makes more room for its recent brand acquisitions, UBITO and CREDEMUS, and supports its future growth.
Leading position in global market
Fraba views this transaction, which will become official on June 1, as a win for all parties involved. With the VITECTOR and CEDES product lines combined, customers will get access to a complete portfolio of safety sensors for industrial doors, and merging the technological strengths of these corporations will lead the way to exciting new innovations. The move will also allow Fraba to focus its resources on POSITAL’s lineup of motion and position sensors, as well as exciting developments in UBITO Wiegand sensors and the CREEMUS manufacturing-process consulting venture.
By acquiring VITECTOR, CEDES will secure a leading position for itself in the global market for industrial door sensors. VITECTOR products and technology are perfect for the existing CEDES portfolio and will enhance the latter’s credibility in the field of monitoring and controlling industrial doors. It will put CEDES on its way to becoming the top supplier of industrial sensors around the world.
Both Fraba and CEDES are strongly dedicated to creating a smooth transition for current VITECTOR customers, and CEDES will continue to design customized products for demanding applications involving industrial door sensing. Clients will get the most complete selection of exceptional industrial door sensors via the new “VITECTOR by CEDES” brand, an opportunity that the company will support to its utmost abilities.
Headquartered in Hamilton, NJ, the Fraba Group is composed of a closely integrated set of business units, with a history that dates back more than 100 years. The POSITAL business unit produces rotary encoders, inclinometers, motion and position sensors, and many other popular motion-control solutions that are available in Canada.
