About Gardasoft

About Gardasoft

Gardasoft was founded in 1999 producing LED lighting controllers for the Machine Vision industry, and is now established as a global leader in the design, manufacture and application of high performance LED control technology so that customers maximize the intensity and lifetime of their machine vision lighting system. Since its inception, Gardasoft has grown through a continuous high level of re-investment in Research and Development.

With headquarters in Cambridge, UK, Gardasoft continues to innovate with new products and technologies to meet the ever-increasing demands of lighting for Vision Systems and Image Recognition. Our LED Controller range offers precise light intensity control of illumination, as well as fast and microsecond accurate timing for strobe control and high-speed applications.

In May 2016, Gardasoft was acquired by OPTEX CO., LTD (OPTEX) of Japan and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of OPTEX.

The Optex Group is a global solutions provider that never stops inventing to create a safe, secure, and comfortable society. The Group company Optex FA Limited serves the Factory Automation sector with an established business in LED lighting and lighting control systems. With Group sales of £236m (¥34.8bn, 2020/21) and a strong position in the worldwide market, it continues to grow its business and expand its product and technology offering to its global customer base.

In January 2021, Gardasoft came under the ownership of CCS Inc. within the Optex Group. This change enables companies operating in machine vision markets to collaborate more effectively and brings Gardasoft, CCS Europe and Effilux into the same parent organization, under the management of CCS Europe Holding.

Being part of CCS Group will allow Gardasoft to extend the application of solutions such as its ground-breaking Triniti® Technology. In the future, CCS Group companies will work collaboratively to achieve synergy in product and market offerings.

Gardasoft continues to trade and promote under its existing name and branding.
