Teltronic is understood to have been put up for sale by its private equity firm N+1 about a year ago and caught the attention of Sepura's CEO Gordon Watling. He said: 'This is a highly complementary and transformational acquisition which will be immediately earnings enhancing. It brings together two of the market's growing players, to create a market leading digital Professional Mobile Radio company, with a broader offering and significantly enhanced capabilities.'
