EMC completes acquisition of MTN

EMC completes acquisition of MTN
EMC announced it has completed its acquisition of MTN (Maritime Telecommunications Network).  The company closed the acquisition after announcing plans to do so, and reported here, on April 29, 2015.

The combined global company retains the name EMC and is now headquartered at MTN’s Miramar, Fla. offices.

The acquisition creates a company with combined 35 years’ experience in delivering connectivity and content to organizations and people on the move in the most remote locations.

The new entity provides remote connectivity to approximately 8,000 on-land sites and 1,600 vessels. The acquisition also further accelerates the organization’s scale and purchasing power as the largest consumer of satellite capacity outside the US and Europe.
'We are excited to leverage synergies, and complementary products and services, for our distinct markets to further expand modern connectivity to remote locations at sea, on land and in the air,' Abel Avellan, founder and ceo of EMC said.
