Navitar acquires Canadian company

Navitar Inc. has acquired a Canadian digital industrial camera developer.

The Henrietta firm announced its subsidiary, Navitar Canada Inc., purchased PixeLINK, an Ottawa firm that manufactures and integrates industrial cameras for machine vision applications and microscope cameras for life science and digital microscopy applications.

A purchase price was not disclosed. 

PixeLINK’s 15 employees will remain with the company and continue operations at its site in Canada. Navitar plans to add at least three salespeople, officials announced. 

The deal means Navitar can provide integrated lens and camera imaging products to its customers, company leaders said. 

“The addition of the PixeLINK business enables us to provide our Navitar core dealers and (original equipment manufacturer) customers in machine vision and life science a large range of visible spectrum camera solutions,” Navitar president Michael Thomas said.

Navitar, with 64 workers, ranked 14th on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of optics and imaging firms.
