Texas-based Fulcrum Biometrics has acquired the biometric time and access business of Delaney Secure, a UK-based access control specialist.
The latter is best known for its DelaneyBiometrics brand, through which it offers three primary solutions. DelaneyCloud is a Software-as-a-Service biometric time and attendance tracking system aimed primarily at the construction industry, while DelaneyGatekeeper and DelaneyID are fingerprint scanning devices for access control, with the latter featuring a Lumidigm biometric sensor.
All three solutions are now in the possession of Fulcrum Biometrics, thanks to its acquisition of DelaneyBiometrics. The company is aiming to use the acquisition to reach new market areas.
“The addition of DelaneyBiometrics intellectual property further increases Fulcrum Biometrics’ share in the biometrics solution market, and expands our geographic reach into Western and Central Europe,” explained Fulcrum Biometrics CEO Ken Nosker.
The acquisition comes after Fulcrum itself was acquired by Fujitsu Frontech North America in April. Operating as a Fujitsu subsidiary, Fulcrum now has the capital backing to make expansionist moves, including its opening of offices in South Africa after the Fujitsu acquisition.
“With the backing of our parent corporation, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., Fulcrum is aggressively expanding our multi-modal biometric solution offerings and looking to move strategically into new territories,” Nosker said.
In announcing the DelaneyBiometrics acquisition, Fulcrum indicated that it plans to target its DelaneyCloud offerings not only at the European market, but also in North and South America, followed by the MEA region.
