Ideal Systems has completed the acquisition of Singapore-based IPK Broadcast Systems, a systems integrator, as well as distributor and supplier of broadcast, audio-visual and communications equipment. The acquisition will see the staff and daily operations of IPK move to Ideal Systems’ new Singapore offices by November 1 this year.
Established in 1982, IPK Broadcast Systems has built up a highly successful business and excellent reputation providing technology solutions for the radio, TV and multimedia industries in the ASEAN region.
After the move, Peter Tang and Tan Kim Poh, who have run IPK since 1999, will remain for a period of time as advisors to Ideal Systems to ensure a smooth transition of IPK’s business as well as make certain that there is no disruption to the sales, marketing and support services for IPK’s existing customers. Key IPK staff are also expected to join the Ideal team in Singapore.
Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO of Ideal Systems, South-east Asia, said: “This is a highly strategic deal for Ideal Systems in South-east Asia as it consolidates our position as the leading broadcast systems integrator in Singapore while creating value by catalysing the growth of our new commercial A/V division across the region.
“We gain some fantastic new and experienced staff right when we need them and also get access to a number of new technologies, which will allow us to serve existing customers better and provide us with some new products, customers and services.”
