Texecom, a UK manufacturer of intruder alarm systems, announced the integration of Klaxon Signals into the company. Klaxon is a provider of a wide range of audio-visual warning devices serving the fire, security and industrial safety markets.
Both companies are subsidiaries of Halma, a provider of electronic, safety and environmental technologies.
Jim Ludwig, MD of Texecom, said the merger will enhance the long-term prospects for both businesses. "We're excited to bring such a ubiquitous brand, and robust product offering into the Texecom family. Texecom's global reach and strong, large-scale UK-based manufacturing operation offer Klaxon enhanced opportunities to grow and improve operating efficiencies. Likewise, Klaxon's extensive range of signaling equipment immediately enhances Texecom's ability to offer our customers a fantastic range of signaling devices for everything from residential installations to wide-area notification for applications like oil and gas, military and municipal warning systems."
The merger is effective immediately, with the Klaxon Signals name becoming a brand under the Texecom umbrella. The Klaxon operations will be relocated into the two Texecom facilities in Lancashire, in the northwest of England. Employees and key contacts for both businesses will be retained.
