Chesterbrook-based Deacom, which creates resource-planning software, has been acquired by a Texas software company, ECI Software Solutions. Based in Fort Worth, ECI provides technology for manufacturers, writes Brian Womack for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Deacom was founded in 1995 and currently employs around 210 people. Meanwhile, ECI Software has more than 1,600 workers.
Deacom has nearly 14,000 clients. Its technology platform offers a product that integrates modules such as warehouse management, quality control, e-commerce, and direct delivery.
The local company opened its European headquarters in Germany last year.
“I founded Deacom 26 years ago with a vision to give manufacturers an ERP that was powerful, easy to use, and adaptable to customers’ changing needs,” said Jay Deakins, CEO of Deacom. “This acquisition is a big milestone in that mission. We have gotten to know the ECI team well over the last few months and are confident that ECI is the right partner to grow Deacom as a global platform.”
In addition to manufacturing, ECI also provides technology for other industries, such as homebuilders and office equipment providers.
