Colorado Springs, CO (June 9, 2011)--Intelix, a manufacturer of AV components and software, has been acquired by Liberty AV Solutions, a division of WESCO Distribution.
The move follows a conclusion to negotiations between Intelix and WESCO Distribution--Liberty's parent company--to acquire Intelix outright for an undisclosed sum. Liberty joined WESCO in 2006 as part of WESCO's acquisition of Communications Supply Corporation, of which Liberty is a subsidiary.
"Intelix has built a fine reputation among AV professionals over the last decade," John Dace, who leads the Liberty operation within WESCO, remarked following news of the WESCO acquisition. "The company will enable the analog-to-digital transition. Its latest generation of products promise to make the shift to HDMI easier, reliable and more profitable."
Liberty will bring the full support and service of an organized global sales force to the task of bringing the entire Intelix catalog to market. Intelix, in turn, will continue researching and developing products.
"We are a research and development company first," says Intelix founder Steve Cohan, who will stay on to guide operations at the company he founded. "We'll continue to delve deeply into discovering what it takes to make HDMI products work more efficiently. As it has been from the beginning, our goal is to help system designers and integrators adapt to today's realities as quickly as possible and in a pain-free environment."
