Irvine, CA /PRNewswire/ - Halo Technology Group ("Halo" or "Halo Group"), the world's largest independent manufacturer of fiber optic transceivers and high-speed cabling, announced today it has completed two acquisitions to broaden its product portfolio and strengthen its global presence. Halo acquired ARIA Technologies ("ARIA"), an industry leading designer, manufacturer, and provider of fiber optical connectivity solutions headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. Halo also acquired Solid Optics, a global provider of fiber optic transceivers, high-speed cabling, and passive and active networking technology headquartered in Almere, Netherlands.
"We are thrilled to add the incredibly talented teams from ARIA Technologies and Solid Optics to the Halo Group," said Matt McCormick, Chief Executive Officer of Halo. "Our mission has been clear since the beginning—to be the global leader in optical solutions and deliver exceptional value to our customers. With the addition of ARIA and Solid Optics, we enhance our global footprint, particularly in key markets such as Germany and France, and further strengthen our product offerings, as well as our technical and commercial capabilities."
ARIA's commitment to innovation and product performance has been transformational in the data center and the telecommunications industry.
