From 1952 until now

Lyngsoe Systems was originally founded as a division of Søren T. Lyngsø AS (established in 1952 in Copenhagen). The company developed automation solutions within the areas of energy, environment, marine and industry, as well as producing computer electronics.

On 1 September 1994, Lyngsoe Systems was sold in a management buy-out to the management group.

In 1999 Lyngsoe Systems accelerated our global expansion with a sales and service office in Frederick, Maryland, USA. From here we now service more than 80 clients based in North America.

The following year Lyngsoe Systems invested in Net-Mill International AS, a company specializing in the mobile Internet, and in 2001 an office was opened in Toronto, Canada through the acquisition of two local RFID technology companies. Toronto is home to a sales and service office, and an RFID R&D and manufacturing facility that is considered to be one of the leading RFID innovators in the world.

By 2005 Lyngsoe Systems had expanded into Romania, and this office provides project management, software development and technical services for Lyngsoe Systems’ product platform Catellae™ and system installations worldwide.

Lyngsoe Systems acquired the global FKI Logistex Library Solutions in September 2009. The acquisition included engineering, manufacturing, software, service and intellectual property of the worldwide Library business. Since the mid-1970s Lyngsoe Systems has been partnering with Crisplant (now Beumer), and later on, their library unit became FKI Logistex. This long-lasting relationship paved the way for the change in ownership of the Library Solutions business. The best from FKI Logistex Library Solutions has been integrated with Lyngsoe Systems’ expertise within RFID and logistics solutions.


In March 2014 private equity fund CataCap acquired a majority stake in Lyngsoe Systems. With Lyngsoe Systems’ current size and position in the global market, the former owners believed that it was the right time to form a partnership with a professional investor that could help to strengthen the strategic and operational competencies in order to secure continued growth for the company.

CataCap invests with the aim of acting as a catalyst for sustainable step changes through a systematic and consistent approach to business development. This is done in close cooperation with management and employees through increased utilization of the company’s strong market positions.
