Pivot International acquires WideBlue, a full-service, multi-disciplinary product design and development firm based in Glasgow, Scotland. WideBlue specializes in highly technical products that include Optic Technology and other embedded electrical engineering disciplines. It has developed numerous medical products as well as a large array of camera imaging products.
WideBlue was formed as a division of Polaroid’s European Design Center over 20 years ago forming an industry-leading team of experts in imaging technology.
The acquisition is Pivot’s fifth in the last 24 months continuing its substantial growth trajectory since 2012.
Pivot’s compounded annual revenue growth in excess of 100% over the last 5 years demonstrates the company’s agility across a broad range of industries and product categories. This is the fifth acquisition for Pivot since the beginning of 2016. In January 2016, the company purchased Mid-Continent Custom Electronics (MCCE) followed by the acquisition of DigitTron in March 2016, Avatar Engineering in May 2017 and Electronic Design and Manufacturing (EDM) in September 2017.
Pivot has a 45-year track record of outstanding performance, innovation, quality and design, engineering and manufacturing as a single-source expert serving clients in a broad range of industries including biometric/security products, wearable technology, touchscreen technology, medical, wireless, fitness, electronic components, agriculture, building operations and consumer products.
Mark Dohnalek, President & CEO affirms, “I am committed to ensuring that Pivot has the global capabilities to manufacture in the US, UK and Asia so that we can deliver the most efficient solution for our clients all over the world.”
