“First and foremost, I’d like to welcome all VSHC employees to the VOXX family and express my excitement over this transaction. The team at VSHC has built a great business throughout the years, with brands that are synonymous with high-quality products and innovation. Both VSM and Rostra Brands have customer relationships that are well-established, diverse product assortments and we believe, opportunities for expansion given the markets they serve and their competitive position,” stated Pat Lavelle, president and CEO of VOXX International Corporation.
