German company Jenoptik has acquired all shares in Essa Technology (Domestic and Commercial Security Limited) which has provided security and automatic number plate recognition systems for more than 30 years. The transaction was completed on January 19, 2017. 


“This strategic acquisition is a further step in the development towards an integrated solutions provider for public safety and security as well as future smart cities”, said Jenoptik President & CEO Michael Mertin. 

Based in Plymouth, England, the company currently generates revenue in the lower single-digit million euro range and will be integrated into the Mobility segment of Jenoptik. The company’s back-office software allows for ANPR data to be efficiently processed and evaluated, as example, providing real-time alerts to a police car, from a central server.

Michael Mertin: “Essa Technology complements our portfolio ideally, making us a single-source provider of hardware, software and service models for enhanced security and traffic safety worldwide."
