#05 (July 1998) Acquisition of the sound, video and nurse call divisions of Lehigh Electric Products

With a need for more sophisticated and powerful intercom and sound reinforcement systems, ETI looked for a well-aligned company for acquisition. In July of 1998, ETI acquired the sound, intercom, nurse call and video division of Lehigh Electric Products to expand ETI’s systems integration product offering. As part of the acquisition, Paul Zeller,  a well-known audio engineer, joined the ETI team as a sales engineer specializing in audio, video and nurse call systems. This acquisition helped propel ETI towards dominance in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding area markets by early 2000, attaining full technology package capabilities to serve their customers.
