JC-Electronics acquires DAX Automation


JC-Electronics, a Dutch company specialized in refurbishing industrial electronics, acquires fellow international industrial automation spares supplier DAX Automation (DAX). The British company is a global supplier of new, refurbished and obsolete industrial automation electronics with operations in the UK and the US.

This acquisition by JC-Electronics fits perfectly with the ambition of this fast-growing company from the Netherlands to become the supplier of choice in its target markets. JC-Electronics is celebrating over 12 years in the industrial automation spares industry and is widely known as a trusted quality supplier in over a hundred countries.


Group Director, Jannes Cruiming:

We have seen that the connected worldwide economy has provided a positive effect on our business year after year. Our focus on refurbishing defective or obsolete automation electronics has provided a cost effective solution for our customers who may then gain greater longevity from their existing automation systems. We believe that what has worked before, can work again. This economically and environmentally attractive solution has created extensive international attention and demand and will remain a core offering of JC-Electronics.”


JC-Electronics has used partnerships in Italy, Spain and Poland before, and with this acquisition now has a business  in the United Kingdom and in the United  States of America for the very first time.


Commercial Director, Gerard Katje:

“DAX, who have offices in the UK and the US, will provide an extra dimension to JC-Electronics both in terms of expanding our presence in these two key markets and expanding the product range we will be able to offer our customers worldwide. There has been a close relationship between JC-Electronics and DAX since DAX was founded so we expect a quick integration of the business and its teams. We’re excited to be taking this international development and look forward to further grow our long term relationship approach with our customers both established and new.”


This acquisition by JC-Electronics will retain the DAX Automation company name in the UK and the US for the foreseeable future.
