Equipment supplier ScaleAQ has acquired Maskon, a Norway-based manufacturer of fully automatic vaccination machines.

Maskon, which was established in 1991, sold its first roe sorting machine in 2006 and its first automatic vaccination machine to Norwegian salmon giant SalMar in 2011.

The company, which was part of Norway's Skala group, generates a turnover of NOK 115 million (€10 million/$11 million). All 36 employees will keep their jobs.
