Motorola Solutions has completed the acquisition of Pelco, a global provider of video security solutions based in Fresno, California.

Pelco designs, develops and distributes end-to-end video technology, including video security cameras and video management system software. The company’s scalable solutions and commitment to service delivery enables customers of all sizes to mitigate risk, increase operational efficiencies and enhance safety.

“Video continues to play a more powerful role in enabling safer cities and securing businesses around the world,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions.

“Pelco’s track record of innovation, internationally recognized brand, global channel and customer installed base enable us to further expand our global footprint with enterprise and public safety customers.”

According to Pelco’s Craig Cobbin, Motorola’s acquisition of Pelco came as welcome news for the Pelco ANZ and wider Pelco teams.

“To be owned by Motorola, a large US company with a focus on technology, is exciting for Pelco and will bring with it substantial investment in technology enhancements to the Pelco portfolio including leveraging Motorola’s analytics suite, camera manufacturing capabilities and engineering expertise,” Cobbin said.

Pelco remains one of the most recognised brands in video surveillance.
