Clear-Com has completed the acquisition of Hampshire-based intercom systems manufacturer Trilogy Communications.

Trilogy supplies intercom systems and master reference generators for the broadcast, defence and industrial sectors. It will now operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Clear-Com.

Trilogy Communications executive chairman Martin Peck said there was “obvious synergy” between the US and UK companies.

Clear-Com said it expects the deal to strengthen its presence in the broadcast market and accelerate its penetration in the defence and industrial sectors.

The Trilogy intercom product lines Gemini, Messenger, Mentor and Mercury will now be incorporated into the Clear-Com product portfolio in a bid to reach a broader market around the world.

Peck said: “Trilogy has long demonstrated product excellence in the specialised communication domain and is well-known for our respected customer service.

“Clear-Com is recognised for its product breadth, technical innovation, and impressive support and service network worldwide.

“There is obvious synergy between the two companies which, together, the two companies will exploit to find innovative ways to help our mutual customers.”

Trilogy’s head office will remain in Andover, Hampshire.

Clear-Com chief executive Mitzi Dominguez added: “Both companies have been serving the professional intercom business for decades and bring a wealth of industry knowledge to the marketplace.

“The efforts of our combined teams will deliver tremendous added value to customers all over the world and will create new business opportunities for both companies.”

Clear-Com is a subsidiary of California-based HM Electronics.
