Through this acquisition Savox and CEF will form a market-leading provider for communications products designed for use in challenging and hazardous environments.
The product offering of the two companies complement each other exceptionally well both for local and global markets. Additionally, Savox’s service capabilities are strengthened in supporting customer projects and installations worldwide. The combined annual turnover of the new Savox Communications Group will be 36 mEUR and the total number of employees will be close to 300.
“It is clear that our customers wish to procure more comprehensive solutions from one supplier. Demand for high end computer and data processing solutions will grow significantly. Various voice, data and video transferring and processing solutions will play a remarkable role in our product portfolio in near future. With CEF’s expertise Savox broadens its capabilities in offering customer specific solutions for hazardous and extreme environments. This is very natural transaction for us not only due to the same market segments and customer base but also because our manufacturing facilities are in the same building in Savonlinna”, says Jerry Kettunen, the CEO of Savox Communications Group.
“Being part of Savox Group enables us to be more innovative and helps us to develop our data processing solutions in close co-operation with end-users covering the entire life-cycle from idea to implementation”, comments Markku Vänttinen, the CEO of Control Express Finland Oy.
