Lyngsoe Systems A/S Library Business Unit has acquired Finnish-based P.V. Supa and its related companies in UK (2CQR) and US (P.V. Supa Inc.) to form a global leader in Library automation.

This is good news for 2CQR Ireland’s customers, because it increases the range of products currently available and also increases the 2nd line and manufacturer support available.  2CQR Ireland has to-date enjoyed the support of both 2CQR Limited in the UK, and PV-Supa in Finland. The range of products currently available is excellent with Kiosk, gates, staff pads and open Library included in the portfolio, but also with some very unique products such as the LibCabinet and the LibShelf products.  This product range will now be enhanced with products from the Lyngsoe range such as the BooK-O-Mat automated locker.

CEO of Lyngsoe Systems, Villads Thomsen, comments: – This acquisition will be transformational for both companies and bring added benefits to our existing as well as new customers. With our combined capabilities, complementary solutions, and not least shared customer values – we will continue, to an even higher degree, deliver on our ambition to work for smarter libraries of the future.

Janne Gertsch, Managing Director of P.V. Supa says: – Together the two companies will build on an amazing legacy and provide exciting opportunities for our customers as well as employees. We look very much forward to embark on this journey together with our new colleagues.

Philip Farrell, Managing Director of 2CQR adds: – 2CQR has been a fundamental part of P.V. Supa’s growth journey during the past years and thus the synergies with Lyngsoe are many.

Both brands are, for the time being, continuing to operate independently with the aim of merging activities within the nearest future. The new company will be headquartered in Aars, Denmark.
