Jotron acquires Ricochet

Jotron has bought 100 per cent of the shares in the ATC recording company Ricochet.

Part of Jotron’s global strategy to focus on its core businesses, communication products and systems for ATC (Air Traffic Control), the acquisition significantly increases Jotron’s revenue in the worldwide market.

Jotron is a supplier of VHF/UHF radio systems and controllers for the global ATC and coastal communication market.

“The addition of Ricochet’s unified recording systems for voice, screen and radar will complete the Jotron portfolio and strengthen our market position,” said Magnus Vold, Jotron managing director. “We expect this to create significant synergies for Jotron, Ricochet and our customers.”

Ricochet will form part of Jotron’s recently established ATC and coastal communication division.

Ricochet supplies advanced recording and replay systems hat meet ICAO and CAP 670 requirements for ATC via multiple partners worldwide.

“This acquisition opens up new opportunities and will strengthen Ricochet even further, says Øivind Ramde, chairman and chief technology officer at Ricochet . “We are in the same markets with complementary products and see synergy effects in all areas of our business. We are convinced that this merger will benefit all current and future customers and partners to Jotron and Ricochet.”
