Extron buys Electrosonic products group

AUTHOR: Inavate

Extron Electronics has announced the acquisition of the product engineering and development division of Electrosonic Group.

The Electrosonic Group’s systems integration and service business is not a part of this agreement and will continue as an independent organisation.

"I have been extremely impressed with the products technology at Electrosonic and we are excited to have the Products Engineering group join our team," says Andrew Edwards, president of Extron Electronics. "At Extron we have been in development of a complete line of A/V streaming products for over three years and will be announcing additional streaming solutions later this year. We see the Electrosonic products as a great complement to our continually evolving product line."

Jim Bowie, President of Electrosonic Group, adds: "Our Products Division has been at the forefront of image processing technology throughout our 45-year history. These current products have developed to the point that we as a systems integrator cannot take them to their full potential - Extron is exactly the right company to take these products forward worldwide. Electrosonic can now concentrate on its main business activity: the design, supply and support of audio-visual systems. Our tremendous growth in these activities over the last decade has made them our primary business. By focusing on our core business, we can continue to grow and improve the service we provide our clients."
