Codan acquires Daniels Electronics
On 8th August 2012, Codan Limited announced the acquisition of Daniels Electronics. Since, the team in Victoria, Canada have been busy innovating and utilsing the global resources of Codan to grow their product portfolio and introduce new products and solutions for the Land Mobile Radio market.
Same great service
The business is now being led by Charles Stuff, with Ben Pearce stepping into the role of leading the sales team. Ben and the Inside Sales team in Victoria are Daniels veterans who understand the importance of retaining the same great customer service and support people came to expect from Daniels. The Outside Sales team include Rick Felt, Wayne Farro, and Richard Sherman, who are working to provide communications solutions in the North American and Canadian markets.
Why change the name?
Daniels Electronics had over 60 years of experience in North America and Codan over 50 years in developing world markets such as Africa and the Middle East. To build a global communications solutions company, we had to unite under one brand and one name to ensure customers in every corner of the world can call on us for their communications needs. We chose to capitalize on the Codan name globally, knowing that Daniels customers would recognize the same quality products with a new name.
We continue to focus on giving our customers niche, cost effective communications solutions tailored to their needs. While we no longer service the AM and lowband market, we continue to invest in our technology to deliver innovative, smart products that we know our customers need. In the last 12 months we have launched five new products that focus on solving our customers communications problems: Stratus, HiveNet, Vizor, MRAY and Vizor Interop.
