Vertical Acquires Vodavi
“In today’s business environment and especially in our industry, scale is becoming more critical in order to continue to bring high quality, cost competitive and technologically competitive products to the marketplace," said Greg Roeper, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vodavi. “By being part of a much larger organization, our customers should have better and faster access to the latest and greatest products, and our employees will have access to greater resources.”
“The combination of Vertical and Vodavi accelerates our momentum and will clearly help us achieve our vision faster, to the benefit of our dealers and end customers alike,” said Bill Tauscher, Vertical’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Clearly, dealers and end customers alike will benefit from the increased channel footprint, the larger research & development spend, and the more robust set of marketing programs that will result from the larger company. We’ll be delighted to welcome the Vodavi employees to the Vertical family and add the Vodavi products to our portfolio, and we’re looking forward to working with the Vodavi channel partners as we continue to grow our respective businesses.”
