Crimestopper Brand Set to Change Ownership

Jan 17, 2019

VOXX Electronics Corp. has reached an agreement to purchase all assets of Crimestopper assets from Rockford Corp. The sale is expected to close later this month.

VOXX Electronics Corp. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp.

“Crimestopper is a highly respected brand with a solid reputation and a loyal dealer network,” said Bill Jackson, CEO and president of Rockford Corp. “We are pleased that VOXX, a leader in our industry, will carry on the 30-year legacy of Crimestopper.”

Effective Jan. 16 Voxx’s Omega R&D department will assume responsibility for sales, service and support operations for all Crimestopper dealers. Customers who have purchased Crimestopper products will also be serviced by Omega R&D.

“Rockford has been a great steward of the Crimestopper brand since they were acquired by Founders Howard and Sharon Miller four years ago,” said Aron Demers, senior vice president of VOXX Electronics Corp. “Under Rockford’s direction, Crimestopper has done a remarkable job of expanding the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Security categories. VOXX Electronics looks forward to continuing the legacy and we are excited to add Crimestopper to our Omega Research & Development Technologies portfolio of vehicle security and ADAS products.”

In the coming weeks, Rockford and Omega R&D will engage with dealers to provide additional details about the Crimestopper transition. For immediate information, contact Omega at Javier@caralarm.com or 305-219-9110.
