Gepco acquired by Belden
WORLD: Belden has been adding focus to its broadcast cabling during the year by introducing new HD-SDI coaxial products and improving upon its existing ones. Continuing its focus in this area, the signal transmission solutions manufacturer has acquired the Gepco brand from General Cable, significantly expanding Belden's cable products portfolio.
‘This acquisition significantly increases Belden’s product portfolio to include A/V panels, assemblies and test equipment, further demonstrating our continued commitment to the broadcast and A/V markets,’ explained Elizabeth Stephan, director of sales and channel for Belden Broadcast AV. ‘Earlier this year, Belden hired Brad Pope, product engineering manager for Belden Broadcast AV. Brad has extensive Gepco product experience from his previous work at General Cable, and will be a valuable resource for Belden and Gepco customers during the transition of Gepco to Belden management.’
‘The acquisition of the Gepco brand provides us with new technologies that expand our new product pipeline,’ added director of marketing for Belden Broadcast AV, Mike Saber. Vice president and general manager, Tim Shoulders, then concluded, ‘I’m very excited to have both the Belden and Gepco brands, each known for their outstanding professional broadcast portfolio, to serve our global customers in the broadcast and A/V market.’
