Vicon and IQinVision Merger Approved
Vicon Industries, Inc., a designer and producer of video security and surveillance systems, said that it has completed the previously-announced merger with IQinVision, Inc., a designer and producer of high performance HD/megapixel IP cameras. The merger adds a global market of integrated solutions to the video security market.
This announcement follows Vicon shareholder approval at their Annual Meeting held on August 28, 2014.
Vicon Chairman and CEO Ken Darby said of the merger, “We are delighted to join forces with IQinVision. The combination of highly regarded brands within the security industry allows us to bring a compelling and complete video solution to our customers.”
The merger is consistent with Vicon’s strategy of providing high quality, proprietary solutions. The vision is to leverage combined operations along with technological synergies. Both Vicon and IQinVision’s product offerings will retain their existing branding, and both companies will continue to sell into and service their existing channels and customers.
“The combination of Vicon and IQinVision will provide our customers with a broader range of IP video solutions that include high-megapixel cameras,” said Bret McGowan, Vicon Sr. VP Sales & Marketing. “The future of the combined company is very exciting.”
