Atlas Copco adds Pivotware to Chicago Pneumatic Tools

Atlas Copco has acquired the assets of NJS Technologies, a UK engineering and sales company specialising in process control systems for assembly operations. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

NJS Technologies – commonly known as Pivotware – is based in Burton on Trent and had revenues worth about £700,000 in 2014. The privately-owned business provides error-proofing systems for original equipment manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive and other industries. Seven employees are joining Atlas Copco.

“This acquisition is a strategic fit as it will expand our product and service offering to manufacturing customers globally,” says Mats Rahmström, president of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business. “We are looking forward to helping customers further increase their productivity through enhanced quality.”

The acquired business is joining Atlas Copco’s Chicago Pneumatic Tools division in its Industrial Technique business, which provides industrial power tools, industrial assembly systems, quality assurance products, software and services, through a global network.
