CIVINTEC acquires the Cidron RFID reader range from Nexus

Published 13/2 2019

CIVINTEC, a supplier of RFID products in the global original equipment manufacturing (OEM) and original design manufacturing (ODM) segment, acquires the Cidron RFID reader product line from identity and security company Nexus Group. “CIVINTEC will invest in product development and market growth for Cidron, focusing first on existing customers and then expanding to new customers over time,” says Sally L. J. Fang, president of CIVINTEC Global.

We are thankful for the cooperation with CIVINTEC over the years and wish them great success the future,” says Magnus Malmström, CEO of Nexus.

CIVINTEC will expand the Cidron business

Sally L.J. Fang is happy about the past cooperation with Nexus and looks forward to the future: “I fully respect Nexus’s decision to exit the reader business. Nexus’s core business is within trusted identities, and issuing and managing physical and digital IDs, and as I have understood, they want to keep their focus there. We deeply appreciate the efforts by the Nexus organization and the Cidron team during all these years – they have provided…
