Zetron Inc

Thursday, 23 February, 2023

Zetron, a provider of integrated mission-critical communications technology, has completed its acquisition of GeoConex Corporation, a developer and integrator of public safety and homeland security communications systems.

GeoConex was originally founded in 2001, then purchased in 2007 by Craig Dotson and Ken Murphy, who have remained as the company’s majority owners and chief operational executives since that time. Headquartered in Tennessee, USA, the company has been a Zetron business partner since 2009 and has grown to be a leading reseller of Zetron communications systems. GeoConex also provides computer-aided dispatch technology and services that are core to Zetron’s command and control solutions portfolio.

With the acquisition, GeoConex becomes a wholly owned division of Zetron, further solidifying and enhancing the collective research and development, sales and support synergies previously realised through partnership. GeoConex customers will benefit from direct access to a wider range of solutions and services, while Zetron adds development, support, integration and subject matter expertise to its line of computer-aided dispatch and related solutions, which are integral to Zetron’s end-to-end platform of mission-critical communications.

“Joining Zetron is a great move for our company, employees, partners and, most importantly, our customers,” said Dotson, who serves as CEO of GeoConex. “We’re looking forward to the many new opportunities, benefits and growth that will be realised from bringing the respective resources of the two companies together.”

Zetron has more than 300 employees worldwide, including additions to its development, services, sales, support and back-office teams as a result of the GeoConex acquisition. The company is headquartered in Washington, USA, with operations throughout the US, Canada, the UK and Australia to serve its growing global customer base in more than 80 countries around the world.

“We are very pleased to officially welcome GeoConex into the Zetron family,” said Scott French, President and Executive General Manager of Zetron. “The longstanding collaborative partnership between the two companies makes this a natural fit. By expanding Zetron’s core solutions, services and integration capabilities, the acquisition will rapidly increase the value and flexibility we can offer our collective mission-critical communications customers.”
