Vislink Acquires Focus Communications
Microwave Radio Communications
said this week that its parent company, Vislink Holdings
, has acquired Focus Communications, parent company of Western Technical Services (WTS
), for US$5.5 million.
WTS, based in Orange County, California, specializes in the design and installation of video and data microwave communications, electronic news gathering, airborne law enforcement, cellular and PCS, satellite, video surveillance, fibre optics and site control systems.
WTS has been a value-added reseller representing Microwave Radio Communications since its formation in 1990. The founders and management team are all remaining to expand the business.
According to Vislink, the acquisition of WTS will enhance service revenues from the domestic U.S. BAS relocation project and the defence, law enforcement and security markets, as well as provide recurring revenues from the broadcast market as it moves towards contracted services.
