Biamp, a Portfolio Company of Highlander Partners, Acquires Denmark-based Neets A/S
June 22, 2021 – Beaverton, OR – Biamp Systems, a leading provider of professional audiovisual technology solutions, has announced the acquisition of Neets A/S, a pioneering manufacturer of AV control systems based in Horsens, Denmark.
Neets’ highly respected technology offering includes a comprehensive family of device controllers, control interfaces, and control software that is distinct for its ease-of-use and elegant design. It has also recently added several other innovative products that target conferencing applications including media bars, cameras, device hubs, and in-table connectivity systems. Neets’ products and expertise enhance Biamp’s current control offerings and help cement its leading position as a full line, global supplier of professional AV technology.
“Neets is a company I’ve been impressed by and have been following for many years. Their products are notable for their extraordinary ease-of-use and careful consideration of everyone that encounters them in the product lifecycle; from designer, to programmer, to installer, to end user,” commented Rashid Skaf, Biamp President, CEO, and Co-Chairman. “I’m extremely pleased to welcome Neets into the Biamp family. Neets’ products directly complement Biamp’s solutions and will let us target an even wider range of venue types, sizes, and use cases and offer even more complete systems. This acquisition makes it easier than ever for our customers to stay within the Biamp solutions family for all applications.”
“I am excited to combine forces with Biamp and deliver the benefits of Neets’ solutions to a global audience. The Neets team has spent over two decades building and refining the best control solutions in the industry,” commented Michael Jarl Christensen, CEO of Neets A/S. “As part of Biamp, with its broad product portfolio and worldwide distribution system, Neets will be able to deliver its products to a far larger customer community.”
The acquisition marks the fifth add-on transaction since Highlander’s initial purchase of Biamp in December 2017. Jeff Hull, President and CEO of Highlander Partners, noted that “With each additional organic product innovation and targeted acquisition, Biamp’s diverse, complementary line of products expands and further entrenches us as the partner of choice for end users, distributors, and integrators alike.”
Ben Slater, Co-Chairman of Biamp and Partner at Highlander Partners, added “At Biamp our driving motivation is to connect people through extraordinary audiovisual experiences – and the world is demanding these connections today more than ever before. This acquisition is the latest step toward furthering this mission. We are thrilled to add both Neets’ technology and team to our rapidly growing organization.”
