Barcelona-based Macsa ID, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance laser coding, marking and scoring systems for the food, beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical, chemical, aerospace and automotive markets, has continued its global expansion with the recent acquisition of a majority stake in UK business, Halo Lasers. Halo Lasers has been rebranded to Macsa ID UK Ltd and will continue to operate from premises in Shefford, Bedfordshire. In addition to existing Halo laser units and workstations, newly-established Macsa ID UK Ltd will offer the full range of Macsa ID Fiber, YAG and COlaser coding and marking equipment.

Neil Greatorex (pictured), Managing Director at Macsa ID UK, comments: “Since its inception in 2012, Halo Lasers quickly established itself to be a major provider of industrial laser systems in the UK. The significant investment made by Macsa ID will take the business to the next level and enable Macsa ID UK Ltd to be a full service provider of coding and marking solutions for a wide range of industries.”

Macsa ID delivers advanced solutions to meet the coding, identification and traceability needs of the manufacturing industry. It is one of the five largest international companies in the laser and coding sector. Macsa ID is supported by a sales and service network that spans more than 80 countries and has direct offices in Spain, China, Malaysia and now the UK.

Macsa ID’s head office is located in Barcelona, Spain and is the only Spanish company that manufactures laser marking equipment. The company invests more that 8% of its revenues in R&D annually to maintain its position as a technological leader in the market. In 2017, Macsa ID achieved double digit growth for the 9th consecutive year and is on target to do the same in 2018.

Jordi Piñot, Macsa ID CEO, adds: ““Macsa has been looking for many years to establish a direct presence in UK, one of the most important markets in Europe, and we believe that the team from Halo Laser is a very valuable addition to the Macsa Group.”
