Marc Damhaut, CEO of Euresys: “We are delighted to join TKH and with our industry leading frame grabbers expand the capabilities in the markets we are jointly active in to a full suite of smart vision technologies. We see an excellent fit with TKH to combine our strengths and potential to accelerate growth together with the complementary technologies and the leverage of the combined international geographical footprint.”
