In early April of 2022, Red Lion Controls was pleased to announce the acquisition of MB connect line GmbH, a provider of secure connection of machines and plants for remote access, data collection, and M2M-communication. The addition of MB supports Red Lion’s strategy to deliver secure, easy-to-use edge connectivity solutions – enabling organizations worldwide to gain secure real-time data visibility that drives productivity.

Headquartered in Dinkelsbühl, Germany, MB connect line is a recognized provider of Secure Remote Access, Industrial IoT, and Industrial Security services. MB’s highly secured hardware and software solutions enhance Red Lion’s modular and rugged industrial automation and networking technology.

The addition of MB builds on the strategic collaboration announced between the two companies in 2019.
