We are pleased to announce that EMX INDUSTRIES, Inc. a Cleveland, Ohio based access control and industrial automation sensor company has acquired Transponder and Reader Engineered Systems, Inc. (TRES), a USA designer and manufacturer of RFID readers and tags for the access control market, effective June 26, 2023.

TRES founders, Steve Hale and Rick Langevin, have decided to sell TRES so they can transition to their well-deserved retirement. Both Steve and Rick will remain consultants to the EMX management team. Mark Phillips, TRES Vice President of Sales, will join the EMX Industries sales team and continue to support the RFID business.

For over 30 years, EMX Industries has been a leading manufacturer of highly engineered sensors across many industries. Main product categories include photoelectric sensors, vehicle detection sensors, and now RFID readers and tags for the access control industry. Furthermore, EMX has capitalized on its expertise in optics to develop a family of sensors for the industrial automation industry including color, luminescence, opacity, contrast, light measurement, color mark, label, tin side detection, brightness, and phosphorescence sensors.

“We are excited to add the TRES RFID Passive reader and tag technology to the EMX portfolio of products. TRES’ commitment to designing and manufacturing high performing products here in the United States shares our culture and strategy at EMX and we look forward to bringing these fantastic products to EMX’s valued network of distributors, dealers, and installers. We look forward to continuing to serve TRES’s customers with the exceptional quality and service they have been accustomed to from TRES, and also introduce our suite of other product categories to help win in the market.”

– Joe Williams, CEO of EMX Industries
