Toronto-based IoT company Geotab has acquired Intendia, a Spanish engineering firm specializing in integrated technology solutions for the heavy-truck market in Europe. Geotab said the acquisition will add to the company’s strong engineering capabilities and bring complementary technology into the company’s product portfolio.

Geotab specializes in the area of global positioning system fleet management and vehicle tracking, also known as telematics. The company was founded in 1996 but has been active in Canada’s startup space. The news comes two months after Geotab launched its smart cities and transportation accelerator program, Torque Labs.

Geotab recently announced new offices in Rome and Paris, and has more than doubled its workforce in Europe over the last year. The company has also been included in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list for North America.
