TSL Products, a designer and manufacturer of audio, power and control broadcast workflow solutions, has announced the acquisition of DNF Controls, a company offering human-to-machine and machine-to-machine solutions for over 27 years. The joining together of these two companies provides opportunity for TSL to expand its presence in the broadcast control systems market for customers worldwide, and to offer audio and power solutions locally to the Americas.
DNF customers in the U.S. region will have increased access to TSL’s complete product range, offering audio and power solutions in addition to control systems, with the ability to place orders and utilise its renowned support department out of Northridge, CA. Meanwhile, TSL customers in the U.S. and around the world will benefit from DNF’s dedicated hardware control panel and integration capabilities, allowing them to add further functionality to their systems.
“We are excited to work together as one with DNF Controls,” said Chris Exelby, MD, TSL Products. “We can now accomplish this by providing modern, compatible, expandable system available, and by offering a range of user-friendly controllers, panels and virtual interfaces. Both TSL and DNF are built from strong engineering roots and have a combined 60+ years in delivering systems for customers worldwide.”
“DNF’s relationship with TSL Products grew to an OEM agreement in May 2018, and we are thrilled that it has now grown further into the companies fully uniting,” said Dan Fogel, CEO and founder of DNF. “The acquisition will provide a wider offering for our current customers while also introducing our products to new markets globally.”
There will be a period of transition to bring the DNF and TSL product families together, with DNF’s California base becoming the TSL Inc. head office for the Americas. However, TSL and DNF have a joined vision, which feeds into the overall control platform product roadmap. Existing DNF and TSL customers will be able to maintain and grow their existing systems, whilst TSL shifts to offering complete solutions that may incorporate components from all product families to provide the most powerful and cost-effective solution for the customer.
