SATO, a leader in barcode printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions, announced its acquisition of Magellan Technology Pty Ltd, NSW, Australia, a pioneer of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, well-recognized for its unique PJM (Phase Jitter Modulation) radio frequency data transmission technology. 

SATO and Magellan have reached the final agreement and SATO will complete the acquisition of Magellan’s healthcare business along with all intellectual properties by early December 2013.

“Over 80% of orthopedic implant kits in Australia today are tagged with Magellan’s PJM RFID Tags thereby improving the accuracy, reliability and speed of operations in hospitals and orthopedic implant manufacturers,” said Tim Frost, Chairman of Magellan Technology.

“A perfect marriage between our unique and robust PJM technology and SATO’s well-established global healthcare market coverage will now enable this new and advanced RFID labeling technology to reach the world quickly. Existing customers worldwide will especially enjoy the seamless business support they will now receive from SATO around the world.”

SATO has been providing a wide range of RFID solutions to the global market for over a decade and recently became a business partner of Magellan Technology and started providing PJM RFID solutions in Japan.

“Magellan’s advanced RFID technology will put SATO in a totally unique position in the healthcare market,” said Kaz Matsuyama, President & CEO of SATO Holdings. “In the healthcare sector, we will be the only company who has proprietary end-to-end RFID technologies incorporating RFID Chips and Tags, RFID Printers, and RFID Readers.  A one-stop company offering efficient and accurate traceability solutions, much needed in the industry.”

SATO Holdings Corporation has established SATO Vicinity Pty Ltd, a 100% subsidiary, in NSW, Australia, as its new entity for the business acquired from Magellan and is expected to start operation from mid-December 2013. “‘Vicinity’ specifically refers to near field contactless radio frequency communication technology including, but not limited to, PJM RFID,” said Kaz Matsuyama. “Vicinity’ also represents SATO’s unchanging attitude - standing by the customer.”
