Almelo, December 1, 2021 - IMS Holding is expanding by acquiring the mechanization division of Sonion Poland. This company will operate as an independent B.V. as of December 1, 2021 under the name Precision Systems Engineering, abbreviated as PSE.

PSE’s team consists of 40 experienced engineers and has specialized in the development and manufacture of equipment for the production of high accuracy components for 15 years. Under the Sonion banner, the focus was on components for hearing aids. However, in the new situation, as part of IMS Holding, PSE sees good opportunities to start exploring new markets and applications, says Managing Director Marek Zaleski: “We are thinking for example in the direction of medical devices and special sensors. When it comes to micro-components in small batches, we are prepared to take on any challenge, from process development through conceptual design to implementation. In this regard, our entry into IMS Holding brings a win-win situation, as we can complement each other in terms of expertise and have access to each other’s design ideas.”

“We are very proud of this addition to our group. With PSE, we add a strong team with highly skilled and ambitious colleagues,” said Ton Pothoven, CEO of IMS. “With this acquisition we also expand our field of competence and can start serving new markets. I am convinced that the three companies under the IMS Holding will combine to create a very powerful synergy.”
