GDSI Acquires Brazil-Based Rontan Group

GDSI has announced that it has acquired the Rontan Group ("Rontan"), headquartered in Sao Paulo state, Brazil.

Founded in 1970, privately held Rontan designs, manufactures and delivers emergency warning equipment specifically for public safety organizations and professionals. Rontan exports products to many of the world's most competitive markets, including the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East and Africa. The largest specialty vehicles and acoustic and visual signaling equipment company in Latin America, Rontan has earned ISO and TS Certifications, attesting to the quality of its management systems.

With 2014 revenue of R$ 500 million (approximately US$ 128 million), Rontan produces some 5,000 vehicles per month and has approximately 1,200 direct and indirect employees. In 1999, through a partnership with the biggest worldwide manufacturers of vehicles for fire fighters, Rontan became an authorized representative of the Oshkosh Pierce vehicles.

Rontan Telecom is the largest manufacturer and distributor of Motorola radios and communication trunking systems for police forces in Brazil, providing technical assistance on the full line of Motorola radios.

According to a GDSI spokesman, "This exciting transaction represents a significant step forward for GDSI. We have been extremely impressed by Rontan's 45 years of experience and exceptional record of serving customer needs with top-quality products and services – both in Brazil and internationally. Rontan's capabilities create enormous synergies with the specialty vehicles produced by North American Custom Specialty Vehicles (NACSV), GDSI's wholly-owned subsidiary.

"This is a momentous milestone in Rontan's 45-year history," said Edigimar Maximilliano, of Rontan. "The combination of Rontan and GDSI will help us expand our capabilities while continuing to provide our worldwide customers with world-class products and services. I'm looking forward to leveraging Rontan's extensive experience and international reach to enable the GDSI team to seize the many profitable growth opportunities envisioned by GDSI's global strategy."
