Safariland subsidiary Vievu to be acquired by Axon
The Safariland Group, the parent company of Vievu (which provides body-worn camera and video evidence management), has announced that the company has entered into a definitive agreement with Axon Enterprise, under which Axon will acquire Vievu.
As part of the agreement, Safariland and Axon entered into a 10-year agreement under which Safariland will become the preferred holster provider for Axon’s Taser Conducted Electric Weapons (CEW).
“Today marks an important milestone in Safariland’s 54-year history of innovation and quality as we continue to deliver on our pledge to support first responders and the communities they serve,” said Warren Kanders, chair and CEO of Safariland. “The integration of Vievu’s digital evidence management solutions with Axon’s suite of products and services will create an even stronger portfolio of best-in-class products to better serve customers and safeguard those who dedicate their lives to protecting others.”
He went on to say this transaction enables Safariland to focus its resources where they will deliver the greatest value to stakeholders.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Safariland, a global provider of a broad range of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, acquired Vievu in 2015.
