(Marposs Corp.: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs, a global leader in measurement, inspection, and test technologies, has acquired the majority share of Digital Strategy Innovation (DSI), a startup company and specialist in applied research in AI, big data, and data analysis based in Venice, Italy.

Founded in 2020 within the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, and supported by VeniSIA, the university’s innovation and sustainability accelerator, DSI provides consulting services in the IT field for integrating digital systems and services and sensors. It acts as an intermediary between the academic and industrial sectors, and works with companies such as Electrolux, Microtec, and others.

Given its operating environment in the academic world, DSI has been able to quickly develop a wide portfolio that also includes the designing and integrating sensors used to power machine learning platforms.

For Marposs, the DSI acquisition provides a cutting-edge development environment where the company can perfect new projects in parallel and complementary sectors to those in which it already operates. The combination of the expertise of DSI’s researchers and the Marposs experience and global presence will enable Marposs to accelerate the development of innovative solutions, particularly in the field of e-mobility and the improving digital platform and data process services, enabling it to enhance its portfolio of advanced technological solutions for customers.

This investment is part of a broader investment strategy of Marposs Group focused on accelerating innovation by acquiring and developing investments in new technologies. Since 2000, the company has acquired nearly 30 companies, significantly expanding its technical capability and product offerings for existing and new markets, including machine tools, e-mobility, medical devices, semiconductor, aerospace, glass, and more.
