Aastra USA Inc. was formed by combining three organizations, each with a rich heritage of its own:
- Aastra Telecom began in 1992 when Aastra Technologies (previously an engineering company) entered the telecommunications market. Aastra Telecom began to develop and market consumer-oriented products, becoming the #1 volume supplier of Caller ID equipment by 1999. Starting in 2000, the company began expanding the portfolio with acquisitions of telephone and telephony server product lines from major providers such as Nortel and Lucent. Today Aastra develops IP-PBX systems for small business as well as a complete line of analog, SIP, and wireless endpoints for organizations of all sizes.
- Acquired by Aastra in March 2005, Intecom has been designing and delivering innovative solutions for the large enterprise communications market for 30 years. Many of our customers have been with us for over 25 years, a testament to the fact that we understand the unique communication needs of large campus environments such as colleges and universities, health care institutions, government entities and multi-national corporations.
- In April 2008, the latest group joined the Aastra USA family via the Aastra acquisition of the Ericsson Enterprise Communications business unit. Providing solutions for medium to large enterprises and contact centers, this group brought even more loyal customers in the Higher Ed, Health Care and Government sectors.
By combining these three portfolios, Aastra USA can meet the needs of customers of all sizes, from single-line businesses to multi-national organizations with numerous networked locations. We are dedicated to helping enterprises succeed by meeting their expanding communication technology needs while exceeding their expectations for value, performance and service.
