Wuppertal, Germany (September 12, 2016)—Following its recent acquisition of ASL Intercom BV in the Netherlands, Riedel Communications announced at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam that it has acquired Delec Audio-und Videotechnik GmbH, a developer and manufacturer of high-quality digital intercom and communication systems.
Thomas Riedel, CEO, Riedel Communications, noted in a statement, "The entire Delec team will become part of the Riedel family, and this is exciting news not only in terms of our ongoing development of high-end solutions, but also for our growing customer base—including current Delec customers. Together, we're better positioned than ever to provide forward-looking solutions that address current and future communications requirements, and we are committed to providing existing Delec customers the great service Riedel is known for."
Since it was established in 1988, Delec has evolved into a supplier of digital intercom and communication systems to broadcasters all over the world, in both fixed installations and outside broadcasts. Delec products—most notably the company's oratis intercom systems, unito Dante audio networking interfaces and digital PA systems—are designed for stage-management and intercom applications at large venues for live entertainment productions.
"ASL Intercom has a strong portfolio in digital partyline technology, and the company's products adapt readily to a wide variety of applications, both small and large," said Riedel. "Intercom applications remain a core element of our business, and we are confident that we'll quickly be able to leverage the complementary technologies of ASL Intercom to serve an even broader array of customers that can benefit from exceptional communications systems."
Headquartered in Utrecht, the Netherlands, ASL Intercom was established in 1985 by current Managing Director, Eric de Bruyn. The company offers digital and analog intercom systems for event production, broadcast, and related applications. ASL Intercom's slate of technology deployments includes markets such as live sound, theatre, fixed installations, and broadcast.
