Party at De Ark
Recently Emsys turned 50. The perfect reason to throw a party. We invited many of our loyal relations, surprising them with a visit to the renovated Port House, followed by an exquisite buffet at De Ark.
Thanks to all of the attendees, it was a night to remember.
Emsys was founded in 1967 as Medior (Mechanografische Dienst en Organisatie), by Hugo Wolfs, Hugo Manshove and Jean-Jacques Westerlund.
Initially Medior managed all databases of Procter&Gamble. But Medior developed also software applications for accountancy and order fulfilment, especially for SME’s in the Benelux and France.
Even back then, we kept on evolving! All the expertise we managed to build up, could be invested in automating the Westerlund terminal in the port of Antwerp, during the eighties. At that time, it was Antwerp’s biggest terminal to stock and ship paper.
Medior evolved continuously and this is why we swapped names in 2000 to Embedded Systems, Emsys. Emsys kept working hard on developing PSS and became world leader tracking paper worldwide.
Due to the recession within the paper industry, Emsys launched Visiongeek in 2014. This new brand offers high-end machine vision solutions in order to inspect your production automatically inline. Are you curious about the possibilities? Get inspired.
At Emsys digitisation is key
It is obvious! Digitalisation and innovation are our core businesses. And we consider it our mission to keep focussing on both of them in the future. This is why we are expanding our team, developing solutions which increase the efficiency on the floor.
At the same time, we are planning a relaunch of our business unit PSS. After all we are convinced that identification using barcodes, will allow us to track a wide range of products. On the other hand, we will start to expand our Visiongeek business, because we believe there are plenty of opportunities to grow.
