PPT will maintain its Minneapolis office, with a network of strategic sales partners, distributors and integrators, according to Bob Heller, who will continue as its president and CEO. He will report to Piazzi.

The acquisition is expected to provide both organizations with stronger global sales channels, additional product development resources and industry leadership positions in automation and machine vision.
