PlantCML is Now Rebranded as Cassidian Communications

By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor

Plant Equipment Inc. (PlantCML (News - Alert)), an industry leader in mission critical communications, has recently announced that the company has changed its name and logo in an effort to rebrand and expand its operations globally. The new company will now be known as Cassidian Communications, Inc., an EADS (News - Alert) North America company, and being the largest and most trusted source of mission critical communications in North America, Cassidian Communications aims to lead the way in standards-based 911 call center applications, notification solutions and services and P25 land mobile radio networks.

In a release, Dave Rutan, CEO of Cassidian Communication said that, “The challenges of today's mission critical communications require innovative solutions. Our customers expect our solutions and services to make everyday operations easier and more efficient. Now, these same solutions must easily scale to support larger incidents, geographic areas and security initiatives throughout the world, ultimately saving more lives. Becoming a fundamental part of the Cassidian master brand will allow us to leverage established market leadership and the global assets of EADS, and better deliver on these expectations.”

The new brand reflects the company’s mission to support those who protect the world. The company had gone through a series of acquisitions in the last several years and had recently been acquired by EADS North America in the spring of 2008. By consolidating the company and portfolio of brands under that of the Defense and Security division of EADS, Cassidian therefore, adheres to the strategic goals of enabling public and private operations to improve situational awareness, expedite response, promote collaboration and increase response efficiency. Cassidian symbolizes worldwide protection and security and the accompanying logo represents a globe encompassed by two hands, hands that are protecting the world.

The change of name and logo will be not effective in the company’s offices at Temecula, California; Frisco, Texas; Franklin, Tennessee and Gatineau, Quebec. These offices serve clients ranging from public safety operations to Fortune 1000 corporations to federal agencies, and its solutions are resident in two out of three U.S. Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and more than 50 U.S. military operations.
