Identive acquires RFID inlays manufacturer Smartag

Identive Group, a provider of products and services for the security, identification and RFID industries, has announced the closing of its acquisition of Smartag, a Singapore-based manufacturer of RFID inlays and inlay applications.

Smartag complements Identive’s European-based transponders and components business with similar capabilities in Singapore, opening up new opportunities and channels in the Asia/Pacific market while adding needed manufacturing capacity to the company.

Identive acquired Smartag and an associated portfolio of RFID and related patents and other intellectual property from the France-based group, FCI SA.

Smartag specialises in design and production of high-frequency (HF) and ultra-high-frequency (UHF) RFID transponders and inlay-based solutions, including labels and tags used for asset tracking, cards and stickers used for e-payment and ticketing transactions.
