AMCS, a global supplier of integrated software and vehicle technology for the waste, recycling and resource industries, announced the acquisition of U.S.-based DesertMicro, a SaaS solutions provider for the waste industry, for an undisclosed sum.
“The waste and recycling industry is going through a massive transition,” said Jimmy Martin, AMCS CEO, in a statement. “Companies are re-positioning themselves in the growing, more circular economy. These organizations also have an increasing appetite to digitalize their business and automate business processes. It requires software companies like AMCS, with a certain scale, to be able to make the investments needed to support this transformation. With the addition of DesertMicro to AMCS, we have the opportunity to further strengthen our global footprint, expand our product portfolio and continue to invest in our state of-the-art AMCS Platform.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome DesertMicro’s customers and employees to AMCS and assure them that they will experience a seamless transition and a high level of support from our global organization,” said Michael Winton, president of the North American region, in a statement. “Going forward, I am confident they will benefit from an increased level of support and access to even broader and more powerful technology offerings, designed to improve their operational efficiency and support their plans for future growth.”
The acquisition follows the recent announcement that AMCS had successfully completed another round of investment from Insight Venture Partners and Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF).
In January 2018, AMCS completed the acquisition of Brady Recycling solutions from Brady PLC and in recent years has completed eight other key acquisitions across the globe.
