On July 7th 2014, Milestone Systems were acquired by Canon Europe. This is a major next step for both companies. GVD Ltd has been a Value Added Distributor for Milestone for the past 7 years. We are very excited that Canon – a respected global technology leader – has chosen to acquire Milestone. We believe that being part of a larger group will be advantageous for our partners and customers.Milestone will continue as an independent company within the Canon Group, operating as they do today.
There will be no change in our business model, and the Milestone management will continue under the new structure. The company is taking this step to accelerate the growth of the entire VMS ecosystem of partners and customers. Milestone’s open platform strategy is firmly supported by Canon for the success that it brings all of us.
Canon and Milestone, in association with GVD will be exhibiting at ISEC 2015, March 25th & 26th. We look forward to seeing you there.
