Smartrac has announced that it has completed the divesture of its Secure ID & Transactions Business Division to the Linxens Group. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

The transaction, first announced in November 2016, enables Smartrac to further enhance the development of RFID products and IoT-based solutions. Smartrac retains its global manufacturing and sales network, its patent portfolio and one of the largest production capacities in the RFID industry.

“The divestiture of our Secure ID & Transactions Business Division gives us a greater opportunity to focus on the development of cutting edge products and solutions, both of which provide strong growth opportunities in the markets,” says Christian Uhl, CEO, Smartrac. “We extend our appreciation to the individuals within the Secure ID & Transactions team who helped lead and grow this Business Division over the years and wish them continued success.”

Linxens, headquartered near Paris, France, designs and manufactures smart card connectors, inlays and LED light sources. The company will take over all the employees, assets and contractual obligations assigned to Smartrac’s Secure ID & Transactions Business Division, and will be allowed to use the Smartrac brand for the Secure ID & Transactions business for up to 24 months.
