HM Electronics acquires Trilogy Communications5 August 2016
HM Electronics has acquired UK-based Trilogy Communications through its subsidiary Clear-Com.
Trilogy is a supplier of intercom solutions and master reference generators for the broadcast, defence and industrial sectors. HME developed one of the first wireless intercoms for the pro audio industry, as well as wireless headset systems for the drive-through quick service restaurant market.
Trilogy will continue operation as a wholly-owned subsidiary and Clear-Com will work to incorporate the Trilogy intercom product lines, including Gemini, Messenger, Mentor and Mercury into the portfolio to reach a broader global market.
Mitzi Dominguez, CEO of Clear-Com says: “Both companies have been serving the professional intercom business for decades and bring a wealth of industry knowledge to the marketplace. The efforts of our combined teams will deliver tremendous added value to customers all over the world and will create new business opportunities for both companies.”
Bob Boster, president of Clear-Com (pictured) says: “Trilogy fits into our company culture and our technology offering. Their specialised matrix solutions perfectly complement Clear-Com’s highly-programmable and scalable digital matrix portfolio, increasing each team’s capabilities to meet the ever-growing and vastly-diverse communication needs across the markets we serve.”
Communications executive chairman at Trilogy, Martin Peck, says: “Trilogy has long demonstrated product excellence in the specialised communication domain and is well-known for our respected customer service. Clear-Com is recognised for its product breadth, technical innovation, and impressive support and service network worldwide. There is obvious synergy between the two companies which, together, the two companies will exploit to find innovative ways to help our mutual customers.”
Trilogy’s head office remains in Andover, Hampshire, UK.
Back in 2010, HME acquired Clear-Com and PSNEurope caught up with both companies a year later to find out the results of the new alignment.
