Riedel acquires DELEC
Riedel Gains Renowned R&D Team and Enriches Product Portfolio With Acquisition of DELEC
In a move that welcomes new engineering talent while strengthening its portfolio of advanced communications solutions and Dante capabilities, Riedel Communications has acquired DELEC Audio- und Videotechnik GmbH, a developer and manufacturer of high-quality digital intercom and communication systems.
“DELEC has long been known for its visionary ideas and strong technology, and the company’s products complement and augment the Riedel portfolio in a way that will bring even greater versatility to our customers,” said Thomas Riedel, CEO at Riedel Communications. “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 are 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. The flexibility, comprehensive functionality, and compact dimensions of DELEC products — most notably the company’s oratis intercom systems, unito Dante audio networking interfaces, and digital PA systems — have also made them ideal for stage-management and intercom systems at many large venues for live entertainment productions.
