Linear, a provider for access control and security systems, consolidated Winston-Salem, North Carolina Aigis Mechtronics, a manufacturer of electronic video surveillance and access control equipment.
Aigis' functions and products will be integrated with those of Linear.
The company brings to Linear 20-year history as a technology-driven designer of components that protect, position and mount surveillance equipment, including monitors cameras, camera housings and mounts integrated camera/housing packages pan/tilt units entry turnstiles
Its products are used in retail, finance, education, hospitality, government, office buildings and parking areas. Aigis also has OEMs with custom and private-labeling services.
“The integration of Aigis products expands and complements our presence in commercial security and access systems,” said Todd Hokunson, VP of Sales for Linear Electronic Systems. “The new line will benefit our commercial security customers by making even more security products available from one source.”
Aigis' customers will benefit from Linear's training and technical support, and will be unaffected by the consolidation, according to Hokunson. The Aigis 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 headquarters in Carlsbad and at its manufacturing facility in Casanovia Mich.
