Purchase of IACS

The deal will go through as of 1 September 2012. The company's financial statement said about the acquisition:

“The acquisition is an excellent fit with Neways’ strategy and constitutes a further step towards the expansion of the greater added value activities in the field of development and engineering of electronic systems. The activities will in the near future be moved to or near the high-tech campus of Twente University. This move will also make Neways’ more attractive in the employment market for technical engineers in the Twente region. The acquisition involves around 10 developers, assets and some clients new to Neways that are active in various segments of the EMS market”.
