In addition to purchasing certain assets of the company, Q1W retained over 120 well-trained and dedicated employees to complement its existing employee infrastructure.” The completion of the transaction unites two wireless industry leaders to provide carriers, OEM’s and other wireless technology partners with a rich array of distribution, go-to-market, and product life cycle solutions across the globe. “This acquisition brings together very complementary capabilities and distribution channels to dramatically increase the overall value add to device makers, telecom carriers, and retailers alike,” said George Appling, President and CEO of PCD. “We are confident that it will result in an expanded customer base to include both the traditional Tier 1 carrier focus of PCD and the regional carrier and dealer focus of Quality One.
