Superfeet on Thursday announced it has acquired RSscan International, which provides movement analysis and personalized products for athletes throughout Europe, effective immediately. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
The merger expands Superfeet research capabilities and personalized manufacturing facilities to Europe, giving consumers increased access to personalized products in Europe and the USA.
“Joining forces with the RSscan team brings more like-minded, exceptionally talented members to the Superfeet fold,” said John Rauvola, Superfeet CEO. “Having worked with the RS team closely on the ME3D personalized insole and Fitstation technology platform, it is clear their vast expertise and technology leadership complement our existing capabilities, we’re honored to have them on board. As technologies and innovations continue to drive our industry, this merger continues our ability to lead the way, and explore new opportunities for people to experience the Superfeet shape.”
The Superfeet and RSscan union expand both organizations expertise in biomechanical research and analysis, and personalized product technology and development. Together Superfeet and RSscan teams include more than seven biomechanists, two complete R&D teams, pressure plate development and manufacturing, and state of the art insole and footwear production facilities in the USA and Europe.
“While working with Superfeet on the Fitstation platform, we saw the power of our elite level research and technology being applied to the Superfeet vision for personalized products available for everyday people,” said Friso Hagman, RSscan CEO. “We are happy our research and technology work will make an on-going contribution to improving the lives of people regardless of their athletic ability.”
