In a move to protect its CMS (Curing Monitoring System) technology patents and bring singular focus to its VeriCure® Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) CMS, Vortex Technology Group, LLC (Vortex Technology Group), a business entity of the Vortex Companies' Products Division, has announced that it has acquired Zia Systems, LLC (Zia Systems), an integrated system solutions provider of CMS and CiPPi temperature monitoring technology for CIPP trenchless rehabilitation applications.
With this latest deal, the Vortex Technology Group will move forward with consolidating and rebranding CMS and CiPPi offerings under the single brand name of VeriCure.
Ohio, US based Zia Systems Co-Founders, Gary Rapp and Larry Rapp, will be working with Vortex Technology Group to ensure a smooth transition of its CIPP monitoring systems and existing customers. Vortex Technology Group, who recently acquired the patented CMS intellectual property and the VeriCure trademark, will now be able to stabilise the market, level-set pricing and standardise QA/QC measures. It will also focus on expanding product field support and educating the trenchless infrastructure rehabilitation engineering community on the benefits of monitoring CIPP applications.
VeriCure, which is currently patented in 19 countries, captures and records a thermal temperature reading, incrementally, along the entire length of a CIPP liner. This information significantly improves the efficiency and quality of the installation, while lowering overall costs.
