Broadcast ONE to Acquire The Bridge Networks

18th July 2013, Wellington:

Broadcast ONE, South-East Asia’s premier RF broadcast and communication Systems Integration company, is to acquire The Bridge Networks.

The Bridge Networks is a Wellington, New Zealand, based solutions provider and Systems Integration company specialising in the areas of Terrestrial Broadcast Solutions, Satellite Solutions and RF Linking. The Bridge Networks has established itself as a leader in its field with a customer base across New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.

Under the new ownership, The Bridge Networks operation will remain essentially unchanged and continue to offer world-class products and system integration services across the region.

The acquisition follows quickly on the heels of Broadcast ONE’s recent acquisition of the Gencom Technology Group of companies whose operations are based in Auckland New Zealand, Sydney Australia, Singapore and Johannesburg South Africa with additional bureaus in Europe.

According to the Broadcast ONE & Gencom Technology President and CEO, Darren Kirsop-Frearson “This acquisition is a perfect fit for our group of technology companies, complementing our existing skill-set with a new and exciting range of products and services. I look forward to The Bridge Networks growing with us across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.”

Outgoing The Bridge Networks Managing Director, Christine Fisher said, “The acquisition of The Bridge Networks by Broadcast One Group is a very exciting and positive step for The Bridge Networks. The businesses have a natural synergy that will enable each organisation to further expand both in terms of capability and geography. I am proud to be leaving my team with such a strong and capable ownership in place.”
