Following the recent acquisition of Telex Communications by Bosch Security Systems in late 2006, the company announced that the title and structure of the Bosch organization that contains professional audio product brands Telex, RTS, Electro-Voice (EV), Dynacord, Midas, and Klark Teknik will be named Bosch Communications Systems effective January 1st, 2007.
The creation of Bosch Communications Systems — a business unit of Bosch Security Systems — sees Bosch poised to become one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of professional audio, wireless, life safety and communication equipment. Bosch systems have been installed in a wide range of applications, such as large stadium and airport projects where customer demand for turnkey solutions combined with security systems is growing. Likewise, the recently acquired brands Telex, RTS, Electro-Voice (EV), Dynacord, Midas, and Klark Teknik are renowned for their role in the world’s most critical, high-profile installations and events. Like Bosch, these brands carry significant cultural cachet and valued histories in research and development. For example, U.S.-based Electro-Voice (EV) celebrates its 80th Anniversary in 2007.
The creation of Bosch Communications Systems expands the breadth of Bosch Security Systems video surveillance, intrusion alarm, fire alarm and evacuation systems management, access control, and communications systems portfolio. With some 7,800 associates, the division is represented at more than 40 locations in Europe, the Americas, and Asia Pacific. The acquisition of Telex-related brands further expands the company’s global presence.
