A Barcelona-based specialist in laser coding, marking and scoring systems for the food and beverage industries, among others, has expanded into the UK with the purchase of Bedfordshire-based Halo Lasers.

Macsa ID delivers solutions to meet the coding, identification and traceability needs of the manufacturing industry and claims to be one of the five largest international companies in the laser and coding sector. Its sales and service network spans more than 80 countries and it has direct offices in Spain, China, Malaysia and, now, the UK.

Halo Lasers, which has been rebranded to Macsa ID UK Ltd, will continue to operate from premises in Shefford, Bedfordshire. In addition to existing Halo laser units, it will offer the full range of Macsa ID Fiber, YAG and CO2​ laser coding and marking equipment.

Neil Greatorex, managing director of Macsa ID UK, said: Since its inception in 2012, Halo Lasers quickly established itself as 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.”

In 2017, Macsa ID said it achieved double-digit growth for the ninth consecutive year and was on target to do the same in 2018.

Jordi Piñot, CEO at Macsa ID added: “Macsa has been looking for many years to establish a direct presence in the UK … and we believe the team from Halo Laser is a very valuable addition to the Macsa Group.”
