Axis Communications to integrate 2N's operations in the U.S. and Canada
To expand 2N’s position in the North American intercom market, 2N’s U.S. and Canadian operations will be integrated with Axis’ North American operations come the new year.
Axis Communications today announced the integration of 2N’s North American operations with Axis North America will be completed as of January 1, 2018. In 2016, Axis acquired 2N, the global market leader in IP-intercom and this integration will help further expand 2N’s leading position in the U.S. and Canadian intercom market. Additionally, aligning with 2N will help Axis accelerate growth in the quickly converging IP-Intercom market.
2N employees in North America will be employed by Axis Communications, Inc. and all 2N products will be available through Axis’ standard distribution channels.
“North America is the largest market for Axis, and is a priority market for future development. By including 2N’s IP-intercom products and technology into the Axis organization, we are creating a complete range of intercom solutions for our customers,” said Fredrik Nilsson, Vice President, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “As we also open our sales channels to 2N, we are enabling a faster sales development of IP-intercom products in our region.”
“By joining forces with Axis Communications, the Company (2N) and its customers will be see a significant improvement,” said Oldrich Stejskal, Chief Executive Officer, 2N. “The 2N brand is strong in this market and will remain as it will be actively promoted throughout North America by a dedicated 2N business development team within Axis’ North American operations."
