Pelco announced it would sell its Intelli-M Electronic Access Control product line to infinias. The deal, including intellectual property, assets and products in development related to the Intelli-M product line, is set to close on March 16.
Infinias, a newly formed and independent company, will focus on the development, growth and support of the Intelli-M business, while maintaining integration with Pelco video security products. Until the transition is complete, Pelco dealer and distributor customers will continue to purchase products and obtain support for warranty and repairs direct from Pelco. At the close of the sale, infinias will take over all sales and support, including warranty support for Intelli-M products previously sold by Pelco.
"Pelco decided that the best way to serve our customers is to stay focused on our core video products, and to spin off the access control business unit to infinias, who, as the current development team, are best suited to maintain and expand the Intelli-M access control business," said Dean Meyer, President and CEO of Pelco. "We will work with infinias, to ensure that this transition is as smooth as possible."
Wayne Jared, Pelco VP of EAC Engineering will lead infinias, as President and CEO, once the transaction is complete. Other key members of the Pelco EAC team based in Indianapolis, Indiana, will join the new company as well. "Infinias, like Pelco, is committed to our customers and to providing continued support for today's Intelli-M products," Jared said. "We will also develop new simple, scalable and secure products to meet the future needs of the EAC market."
