Shure buys Informationsteknik2 February 2011
Shure Incorporated has acquired Informationsteknik of Denmark, the discussion systems and AV communication solutions provider. Under a definitive agreement, Shure now owns Informationsteknik and its three divisions.
The three parts of Informationsteknik are: the Danish Interpretation Systems (DIS) division; the Project Division, which is responsible for highly specialised AV system integration and installation; and the Rental and Staging Division, which is responsible for providing creative solutions for corporate events.
“This acquisition is beneficial to both organisations,” said Sandy LaMantia, Shure president and CEO. “Informationsteknik and Shure are both industry leaders. By coming together, we will significantly strengthen both companies’ global reach and market position. We welcome all of the members of Informationsteknik and we look forward to their continued success.”
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with one of the world’s leading professional audio companies,” said Finn Halken, Managing Director of Informationsteknik. “There are several reasons this acquisition makes sense for us, especially the fact that both companies place a high value on our employees, and we both have a very customer-focused approach to doing business.”
