For more than 25 years, these motherboards have been, and are being developed and produced in Augsburg, Germany. Impact is pleased to announce that Kontron S&T AG, located in Augsurg, Germany, and subsidiary of S&T AG, Linz, Austria, acquired Fujitsu's Augsburg-based Industrial Motherboard Business as part of an asset deal signed on July 22, 2019 with Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH. Under the terms of the agreement, Kontron will take over the embedded motherboard business unit. Manufacture of the existing models will be uninterrupted, but gradually moved from Fujitsu-Augsburg to Kontron-Augsburg. Fujitsu plans the closure of its Augsburg site by the end of September 2020. Kontron intends to continue the existing Fujitsu motherboard business at the high level of expertise and skills that customers have come to know and appreciate. Motherboards designed by Fujitsu and manufactured by Kontron work reliably in thin clients, servers and complete system solutions for industrial customers around the globe. The company is offering industrial and semi-industrial motherboards in every configuration from Mini-STX, Mini-ITX, uATX, ATX, or other motherboard form factors made to suit your needs.
