The need for wireless enterprise automation is growing rapidly and we intend to be a major partner to our global customers through a comprehensive offering. The combination of our two companies will create significant value and growth in our existing markets.” said Chris Guers, president of Wizcon Systems.

Completion of the acquisition is subject to due diligence investigations satisfactory to eLutions, the negotiation and execution of a definitive acquisition agreement, ITA Holdings obtaining all required consents and other customary conditions.
