EMS Technologies was an Atlanta-based company with approximately $290 million in annual sales revenue. The company had four major divisions: LXE, EMS Defense & Space, EMS Aviation and EMS Global Tracking. EMS-T specialized in wireless, defence, and space communications systems
Founded in 1968 by Dr. John E. Pippin as Electromagnetic Sciences Inc., the company was located in the Gwinnet Technology Park and employed about 1,100 there and 1,900 internationally. In 2007, EMS acquired two companies, DSpace of Australia, and Akerstroms of Sweden. Among its products, it offered electronic counter-countermeasures for communications satellites, and airborne communications, for which it held a 90% stake in military applications, such as Air Force One.
In 2011 Honeywell International announced that it has completed its acquisition of EMS Technologies, Inc., parent company of LXE. At this time EMS was a leading provider of connectivity solutions for mobile networking and rugged mobile computers.
The acquisition enhanced Honeywell’s existing capabilities in rugged mobile computing technologies.
