Camstar expects the merger to boost revenue 30% in 2011.
The company described the acquisition as a "a very clean merger - a near-perfect alignment of solutions, industries and vision."
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The brands will be integrated by the end of the year under the Camstar label. Workers will be consolidated from Sunnyvale, Calif. at Camstar's office in San Jose.
