ASL Intercom and Delec Audio acquired11 September 2016
Both ASL Intercom and the assets of defunct Delec Audio have been acquired by Riedel Communications. With the purchase of ASL, Riedel has significantly extended its portfolio of intercom technology optimised for live entertainment and broadcast production environments.
Delec’s assets have meanwhile been acquired by Riedel, including the entire team, and are being integrated into the business.
ASL’s flagship ASL Flexus intercom system is notable for allowing multiple standards — Dante/AES67/AVB and RAVENNA — to coexist in a single system.
The company will continue to maintain its separate brand identity from Riedel, although it has been updated with a bright yellow makeover.
“ASL Intercom has a strong portfolio in digital partyline technology, and the company’s products adapt readily to a wide variety of applications, both small and large,” said Thomas Riedel, CEO at Riedel Communications.
“Intercom applications remain a core element of our business, and we are confident that we’ll quickly be able to leverage the complementary technologies of ASL Intercom to serve an even broader array of customers that can benefit from exceptional communications systems.”
The engineering team at the former developer and manufacturer of digital intercom and communication systems, Delec, is now being absorbed into Riedel. Riedel commented:
“We’ve got the whole Delec team on board, and they have a fantastic engineering team.
We have always found it hardto find good engineers, so to get a whole team of engineers with knowledge of comms, is just luck.”
