Drew Technologies has acquired the Durham, N.C.-based vehicle diagnostics provider BlueLink Diagnostic Solutions.
Drew Technologies, Inc., a diagnostics and reprogramming company based in Ann Arbor, Mich., acquired BlueLink’s technology and operating assets for 2.8 Million Swedish Kroner (approximately $384,000 CDN).
BlueLink’s technology and operations will be integrated into the offerings of Drew Technologies and Autologic, both part of the IVS division of Opus Group.
Existing products offered under the BlueLink brand will be supported and further developed by Opus’ IVS division.
“I am excited to welcome BlueLink into the Opus family,” says Brian Herron, president of the IVS Division. “Drew Technologies and Autologic have used BlueLink technology for several years. BlueLink was founded in 2005 and developed specialized remote vehicle diagnostics technology and services, perfectly complementing the current Opus IVS offering. Opus IVS products and services are already utilizing BlueLink’s patent pending technology to assist our customers.”
He said the BlueLink and Opus IVS teams will leverage engineering synergies to accelerate vehicle diagnostics technology that will help our customers better service intelligent vehicles.
Beyond the technology potential, the highly qualified expert technicians at BlueLink’s North Carolina call center will help Opus IVS to deliver quality services to our customers,” he said. “With this acquisition, Opus IVS now has four call centers in North America, employing over 100 trained and experienced technicians.”
Opus Group is a public limited company headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden. Its IVS division focuses on supporting technicians who repair intelligent and complex vehicles. It includes Drew Technologies and Autologic, with additional assets and personnel from Farsight and now also BlueLink.
