Milestone AV Partnering with SurgeX; Next Stop: Buyout

MilestoneLogo-1213Milestone AV Technologies and SurgeX have just announced a new partnership that they’ll roll out at InfoComm. We predict the next step will be a buyout.

The two companies are developing a new line of power protected infrastructure solutions exclusive to the Chief brand. This initial offering combines SurgeX’s surge protection technology, power and filtering with six Chief products, including the new in-wall and above-ceiling storage solutions, and two suspended ceiling kits.

SurgeX-Logo-2011-for-website-1112Chief has long had a close relationship with SurgeX — the provider of its non-sacrificial rack accessories. This new partnership deepens the connection between the two companies and opens the potential for new solutions that span the Milestone family of brands. And, we see this as the next logical step to Milestone AV’s expansion in the AV industry.

The new line of powered infrastructure solutions will ship next month and when all the details are public, they will be posted here.
