"This acquisition is a perfect combination of two long standing businesses" said Fred Hickey, President of Trumeter USA. "Redington's products are well known for their high quality and innovative design, and we are excited about being able to offer a larger number of customers a broader combined range of electronic, electromechanical and mechanical devices" continued Mr Hickey, who went on to say "Redington has been particularly successful in the development of their elapsed time meters and I expect that Trumeter's customers in Europe and Asia will be excited by the opportunity to access Redington products through their Trumeter sales team."
John Smith, Chief Executive of the Trumeter Group, added "this acquisition marks the first of several significant steps to position Trumeter as a leading global supplier of measurement devices and automotive and commercial LED solutions. I am very excited to have the Redington employees join the Trumeter Team, as they bring with them not only a deep knowledge of the North American market and customers, but also a wealth of product and engineering skills that we intend to leverage right across our global business"
Mr Smith continued, "There are many commercial and operational advantages and opportunities that now become possible by combining the 125 years experience of the two companies", adding "I expect that Redington customers who look for custom solutions will also benefit from the extensive experienced engineering team at Trumeter that has developed many innovative products for industrial, automotive and consumer applications over the years."
