Belden Inc has reached an agreement to acquire GarrettCom, a leader in high-availability industrial networking IP-based switches and routers as well as the Thomas & Betts Communications Products Business.

GarrettCom provides advanced industrial networking products and smart grid solutions.

The acquisition enhances Belden's position as a leading industrial networking solutions provider by adding a recognised leader in industrial grade switches, routers, converters, serial communications, and security software.

GarrettCom's networking products complement Belden’s existing portfolio of Hirschmann brand high-availability industrial networking solutions.

GarrettCom's products are sold into power utilities, surveillance and security, transportation, specialty industrial automation, telecommunications, and similar demanding harsh-environment verticals.

The Thomas & Betts acquisition will further strengthen Belden's position as an end-to-end solution provider within the broadband/CATV, security and audio/video markets.

By adding established brands and market-leading Radio Frequency (RF) connectors to its extensive portfolio of audio, video and security cables, Belden will expand its end-to-end solution offering and leverage its existing channels.
