Marlton-based eMaint Enterprises has been acquired by Everett, Washington-based Fluke Corporation. Terms were not disclosed.
Founded in 1996, eMaint is a leader in Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS). It has 99 employees listed on LinkedIn, located in South Jersey, Florida, and Ireland. It was named to the Philadelphia 100 in 2015.
Given Fluke's strength in electronic test tools and software and eMaint's expertise in equipment maintenance software, it sounds like a potential Internet of Things play.
Fluke, a subsidiary of Fortive, has around 2500 employees. Fortive was spun off from Danaher Corporation this past summer. Fluke has a history dating back to the 1940s, when it was an early competitor to Hewlett Packard's original electronic instrumentation business.
Brian Samelson is eMaint's CEO and President, and Hannelore Fineman is EVP and founding partner. Matt Ferry, chief strategy officer, was previously VP-Sales for Artisan Mobile.
In response to an email inquiry about future plans from Philly Tech News, a Fluke spokesperson said that "eMaint will continue to operate as is, with initial collaborations focused on opportunity-sharing between our two customer sets."
"Yes, there is absolutely an IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) play here: connected teams, devices and systems is the number one priority for both companies. IIoT has opened so many opportunities for innovators to overcome previous barriers to maintenance productivity, especially at mid-sized manufacturers and field service orgs," the spokesperson added. "There are no specifics at this point in terms of future roadmap."
