The move follows a successful conclusion to negotiations between Intelix and WESCO Distribution, Inc. — Liberty’s parent company — to acquire Intelix outright for an undisclosed sum. Liberty joined WESCO in 2006 as part of WESCO’s acquisition of Communications Supply Corporation, of which Liberty is a subsidiary.
Liberty is an audio/visual supplier of solutions-based products ranging from bulk wire and cable to equipment enclosures and mounts to power distribution products and more.
“Intelix has built a fine reputation among AV professionals over the last decade,” said John Dace, who leads the Liberty operation within WESCO. “The company will enable the analog-to-digital transition. Its latest generation of products promise to make the shift to HDMI easier, reliable and more profitable.”
Liberty will bring the full support and service of a global sales force to the task of bringing the entire Intelix catalog to market.
“We are a research and development company first,” said Intelix founder Steve Cohan, who will stay on to guide operations at the company he founded. “We’ll continue to delve deeply into discovering what it takes to make HDMI products work more efficiently. As it has been from the beginning, our goal is to help system designers and integrators adapt to today’s realities as quickly as possible and in a pain-free environment.”
