“Atlona has been at the forefront in developing cutting-edge AV technology that embraces the full potential of the convergence of AV and network infrastructure,” explains Dennis Renaud, president and CEO of Panduit. “Their industry-leading solutions complement Panduit’s extensive physical infrastructure portfolio, which will allow us to offer customers a quality end-to-end solution as they move to increasingly complex network infrastructure systems.” These innovative AV solutions are backed by an Atlona 10-year award-winning warranty.

Ilya Khayn, Atlona CEO adds, “There are strong synergies between our companies including a culture of providing innovative, high-quality, customer-driven products, along with outstanding customer support capabilities. This partnership will ultimately provide our market channels with a single-source solution and expand our footprint globally.”

As part of the acquisition, the Atlona team will join Panduit’s Enterprise business group. Atlona will continue to serve its customers from its global headquarters in San Jose, Calif. for all sales, customer support, and training related inquiries.  
Panduit is headquartered in Tinley Park, Ill., USA and operates in 112 global locations. Atlona will exhibit as usual at forthcoming shows, such as ISE 2019 where the company will introduce its All-IP Meeting Space solution which simplifies meeting room designs by bringing the power of large, enterprise-sized, IP-based systems to individual meeting spaces without the need for complex switching systems. |
