Westermo, a Beijer Group brand, has finalized the acquisition of Virtual Access Limited. Virtual Access is a technology company based in Dublin, Ireland that specializes in wireless industrial routers and gateways. It also deals with the management of connectivity services for utility, traffic management, and telecommunications clients. For this reason, it represents a strong complementary fit to Westermo.
