Concrete batch automation, dispatch software and moisture meter provider Automatic Control Electronics Co. (ACE-CO) has become a division of Libra Systems, a key player in plant automation and enterprise integration solutions for asphalt and aggregate operators. Both companies’ product lines will continued to be marketed, supported and extended, while current ACE-CO management, staff and San Antonio, Texas, office are maintained.

The combination of the two companies provides customers an unparalleled, single-source solution for all of their aggregate-based facilities, notes Libra Systems President Ken Cardy. “A hallmark of ACE-CO is their customer-focused culture. Clients enjoy a support staff that is always accessible, knowledgeable and helpful. This is a philosophy we share and one of many synergies between our businesses that will bring real benefits to our customers. We are now able to combine our technologies and products to provide enterprise integration for clients operating aggregate, asphalt and concrete facilities.”

“Libra is a highly respected leader in the asphalt and aggregate industries,” says ACE-CO Director Dan Faubel. “They’ve earned a loyal following by continuously raising the bar through product differentiation and providing unparalleled support to their clients. The resources and expertise of the combined companies will allow ACE-CO to accelerate development plans and offer our customers a richer set of tools to increase their profitability.”
