(“Sun Capital”), a leading private investment firm specializing in leveraged buyouts and investments in market-leading companies, today announced that an affiliate has completed the acquisition of Polycom, Inc.’s Enterprise Wireless Communications business (the “Company”), which operates under the SpectraLink and KIRK telecom brands.
The Company is a leading global provider of on-site enterprise mobile communication solutions — including handsets, infrastructure, accessories and services—using Wi-Fi, DECT, and proprietary wireless networks. The Company delivers critical communications solutions to enterprises in sectors that employ non-deskbound employees, including healthcare, hospitality, retail, warehousing and manufacturing.
