IDIS’ acquisition of Costar Technologies, Inc. has been officially completed.

The two companies already enjoy a long term existing ODM relationship, with approx. 60% of Costar Video’s products made by IDIS.

IDIS & Costar

Costar has a sales channel of one hundred-plus distributors and 1,000 systems integrators across the US.

This channel will significantly benefit from IDIS’ proven and NDAA-compliant technology.

Both IDIS and Costar will also benefit as the management and sales teams merge, meaning that customers will be able to buy Costar and IDIS solutions from either company.

This will give customers comprehensive US and Canadian coverage.

“A vibrant video tech company”

“The Costar and IDIS teams have over 20 years of partnership experience and we are excited to be merging with a vibrant video tech company,” said Scott Switzer, Chief Executive Officer, Costar Technologies, Inc.

“With its rapid growth, expanding product line and reputation for exceptional quality, IDIS combined with Costar’s sales network is poised to make significant inroads in the US market.”

“IDIS’ growth strategy has always been focused on building long term relationships with local partners and customers,” added Joon Jun, President, Global Business Division and Senior Executive Vice President, IDIS.

“Leveraging Costar’s established distribution networks and sales channels in North America is reflective of that strategy.

“We are very proud to be uniting with Costar and making our entire IDIS range of advanced technologies and resources available to our combined customer base.”
