AMCS Group has acquired waste collection software firm PC Scale Technologies (PCST) in a move it says has consolidated its global position.
AMCS Group claims that following the acquisition it has become the “world’s largest provider of software and on-vehicle technology for the waste and recycling sector”.
The companies did not disclose the sum involved in the deal.
PCST, which is based in Oxford, Pennsylvania, has an annual turnover of approximately $10m (£6m) and employs 50 people across the US.
“The acquisition of PCST provides real scale and genuine synergy, leveraging our common technology and combined industry expertise,” said Jimmy Martin, chief executive at AMCS Group.
He noted the acquisition followed a recent injection of £19m by investment firms Highland Capital Partners and Investec.
The new division of AMCS Group will be led by PCST’s chief operating officer Ken Good.
