Lakesight Technologies is the consolidation project
backed by Ambienta aimed at building
an European leader in the machine vision sector.
Machine vision is a large fast-growing market characterized by high fragmentation, where 90% of suppliers have a turnover below €10 million.
Small machine vision companies, despite their strong innovation capabilities, have similar size-related issues such as narrow product offerings, small and local sales teams, limited access to management resources, lack of strategic focus and investment constraints.
Lakesight aims at overcoming these issues by establishing a European platform comprised of smaller synergic players that can share sales channels, management resources and investment programs. Lakesight’s end goal is to create a unique machine vision player with global ambitions.
Lakesight Technologies is based in the Munich area and consists of three highly complementary and synergic companies
Tattile is based in Italy and develops,
produces and sells
machine vision systems
for industrial and mobility applications
Mikrotron is based in Germany and is a leading manufacturer of vision solutions, with a focus on and a leadership position in high-speed cameras and recording systems
Chromasens is worldwide known for customized systems for high-quality image capturing in 2D and 3D and for line scan camera systems, multispectral cameras and high-intensity LED light sources
Ambienta is a leading European private equity fund operating out of Milan, Düsseldorf and London, focused on industrial growth investing in companies driven by environmental trends.
With funds under management of over €500 million, the world largest capital pool for this strategy, Ambienta has invested in more than 20 companies in the area of resource efficiency and pollution control.
