Spanset Acquires Stake in CoreRFID

SpanSet, a Swiss multinational company that produces lifting and height-safety products, has acquired a stake in software firm CoreRFID. CoreRFID's CheckedOK solution is designed to help businesses comply with rules regarding safety and maintenance inspections.

SpanSet provides lifting, load-control and height-safety products and services from its bases in 14 countries around the world. The firm has invested in CoreRFID via its U.K. subsidiary, SpanSet UK, which holds a 33 percent stake in the company. The collaboration will support CoreRFID's international expansion via the SpanSet Group.

SpanSet UK's managing director, Pete Ward, said in a prepared statement that his company recognized the need to incorporate an IT solution in its products. "Working with Core, an established provider of RFID and asset management software, proved to be very positive," he said. "As we progressed it became evident that our services committed SpanSet quite closely to CoreRFID and its technology. We also realised that our perspective from the end-users of lifting and height safety products meant that we were able to help Core develop its offer further. To secure such a positive partnership it seemed like an obvious step to invest in the company."

Munzi Ali, CoreRFID's managing director, added in the prepared statement: "SpanSet has been a customer for many years. Meanwhile CoreRFID has set its sights on international opportunities, having dominated the UK and Ireland market for years With SpanSet's global presence and CoreRFID's market leading technical solution, this partnership makes complete sense. Both companies will now work together to make the CheckedOK system a global brand."
