All Secure Wireless operations will be integrated with those of Linear during the second half of 2012. Secure Wireless will remain an important product offering and brand in the Linear portfolio.
Founded in 2002, Secure Wireless manufacturs radio frequency (RF) based transmitters and receivers, with a core emphasis on supplying RF devices to a growing number of OEM partners. The company’s products are used in both residential and commercial applications, and wireless consumer products, and the collective knowledge of RF standards throughout the world has allowed Secure Wireless to meet almost any country’s specific emission and frequency requirements.
“The integration of Secure Wireless strengthens Linear’s RF development capabilities while giving us more flexibility to meet the demands of our commercial security and access control customers,” said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development for Linear. “Linear is already a leader in wireless security solutions but this consolidation gives us more resources to pursue other segments through innovation and product development.”
Secure Wireless customers will benefit from Linear’s training and technical support teams, and, will be unaffected by the consolidation. The Secure Wireless sales team will remain as the primary liaison for the product line. Technical and customer support functions, along with other business operations, will be combined at Linear’s headquarters in Carlsbad, CA and at its manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, MI.
“Our existing customers will immediately benefit from the world-class service and support Linear is known for,” said Chuck Stevens, general manager of Secure Wireless and vice president of the new Linear Health strategic business unit. “We will continue to be a leader in wireless security and OEM development and look forward to continued growth aided by Linear’s extensive dealer and support networks.”
