Exton, a Scandinavian system integrator has acquired BTS GmbH in Germany for an undisclosed amount.
"We believe BTS is a good fit for our growth," says Exton CEO Sverrir Hreidarsson. "Broadcasting is a mission critical business where customers appreciate the added value that comes with dedication to quality, innovation and service. BTS is an internationally experienced and innovative systems integrator offering high quality OB vans and studio solutions. A strong brand with customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Now their services will be represented in Scandinavia too."
Originally, a system integrator for large venues Exton has been growing its broadcast services in recent years and is currently Grass Valley's channel partner in Denmark, Norway and Iceland.
"BTS is excited to become part of the Exton family of companies," remarks Mr. Ewald Fehlauer, CEO of BTS. "While we offer new and additional services to Exton's arsenal in the North, we likewise gain from their quality and expertise in broadcast sound and lighting areas traditionally not serviced by BTS. 2014 will be a very exciting year with numerous opportunities in the Middle East and Asia as well as our own backyard."
