Group continues efforts to buy assets of the former JPS Communications ‘as quickly as possible,’ Scott says
Assets of the former JPS Communications—a communications-equipment firm best known for its portfolio of popular interoperability products—continue to be the target of an investor group led by Don Scott, who was one of the co-founders of the company.
“The commitment to provide reliable mission-critical technologies, service and support for the public-safety, first-responder and LMR user communities have been part of my life for many years,” Scott said during an interview with IWCE’s Urgent Communications. “I am actively involved to continue my commitment. Presently, we are investigating obtaining the assets of the former JPS Communications to establish a new business opportunity.
“We have established a team of highly qualified individuals and investors to further this endeavor; however, at this time, we are not at liberty to discuss the details of any discussions, or about other parties involved. We are hopeful for the timely establishment of our business which will focus on bringing new and established technologies to the market in concert with certified and professional service and support.”
When asked when an agreement might be finalized, Scott declined to speculate.
“There is a sense of urgency, and we’re trying to make it happen as quickly as possible,” Scott said.
