Just ahead of NAB, which begins on April 10, California-based wireless intercom system specialist HM Electronics Inc. (HME) has announced that it has acquired The Vitec Group’s Clear-Com Communication Systems.
The deal will help HME, which has thus far provided digital wireless intercom solutions to the restaurant, hospitality, sports and pro audio markets, expand its operations into the broadcast market. Clear-Com will continue as a wholly-owned subsidiary of HME with no changes planned for its product portfolio in the near future.
The acquisition will enable HME to provide TDM Matrix and integrated IP and wireless solutions as well as offer an expansive selection of communication products and technology for intercom customers with different applications and system requirements.
Speaking about the acquisition, Mitzi Dominguez, president of HME stated: “Both companies have been in the professional intercom business for over 30 years and share similar cultures and core values. And there is tremendous synergy between the two companies. With their combined expertise in the professional audio industry they will focus on finding new innovative ways to help their customers.”
Matt Danilowicz will continue in his role as president of Clear-Com under the new structure within HME.
