Cognizant has agreed to acquire TQS Integration, a privately owned global industrial data and intelligence company. TQS delivers manufacturing data intelligence, global technology consulting and digital systems integration to help manufacturers accelerate their digital transformations.
TQS helps nine of the top 10 global life sciences companies enable Manufacturing 4.0. Cognizant, which previously strengthened its life sciences manufacturing capabilities with the 2019 acquisition of Zenith Technologies, will combine TQS’s expertise with its own to help clients transition to Industry 4.0 and expedite the production of life-changing medicines.
TQS expands Cognizant’s presence in Ireland, a hub for the world’s leading life sciences manufacturing experts and an ideal location for delivering Industry 4.0 consulting and services to European manufacturing clients.
Joe Haugh, VP of Cognizant Life Sciences Manufacturing & Supply Chain Group said: “TQS Integration are an exemplary, world-leading industrial data and intelligence company. Like Zenith Technologies, their business started out in Ireland and has grown to be a leading global player, driving excellence in the field of data management and utilisation. Building on their fundamental knowledge of data historian and data analytics, this acquisition will help strengthen and complement our services in Life Sciences Manufacturing and enable us to deliver a broader, end to end digital solution to the marketplace.”
Máire Quilty, corporate managing director, TQS said: “Our world-class team of data intelligence and technology consultants have built a tremendous track record in helping our life sciences manufacturing clients transform their businesses. Together with Cognizant, we look forward to broadening our impact to manufacturing clients in other industries who are looking to embrace Industry 4.0.”
