Kramer announced the acquisition of Ashton Bentley, a UK-based provider of collaboration spaces. The company says Ashton Bentley’s solutions enhance Kramer’s current offerings by allowing the company to offer AV-enabled meeting room furniture to display mounts. The acquisition of Ashton Bentley enables Kramer to offer complete meeting room solutions for enterprises, according to the company. Kramer says the companies will eventually develop an integrated, “out of the box” solution that will require no integration.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Ashton Bentley team to the Kramer family. This acquisition is another milestone in our investment and commitment to the unified communication and collaboration ecosystem,” said Gilad Yron, CEO of Kramer. “The Ashton Bentley ‘out of the box’ solution, alongside Kramer’s broad portfolio, offers a unique, fully integrated solution to further enhance the hybrid meeting experience. Any acquisition is about the people. I’m convinced that the cultural fit, enthusiasm and passion the Ashton Bentley team brings will be an outstanding addition to the Kramer family.”

Roger McArdell, Roger Vinton and Tony Leedham, founders of Ashton Bentley also commented on the acquisition.

“Joining forces with Kramer presents an exciting opportunity for Ashton Bentley. Kramer’s global market reach and product synergies will enable us to bring our innovative solutions to a broader audience. The whole team are looking forward to contributing to Kramer’s vision and continuing to push the boundaries of AV technology in the UCC domain.”
