Camarillo's View Tech to Merge With USTeleCenters

Shareholders of Camarillo-based View Tech Inc. have approved a merger with USTeleCenters Inc., one of the largest authorized sales agents for several of the regional Bell operating companies.

The merger also was approved by USTeleCenters shareholders in a meeting at the company's Boston headquarters. Officials of both firms expect the merger to be concluded almost immediately.

"We are enthusiastic about the new opportunities that the combined companies will have to further expand the northeastern region, diversify our revenue sources and establish voice, video and data integration solutions for our customers," said Robert G. Hatfield, View Tech chairman and chief executive officer.

View Tech, founded in 1992, markets and installs video communication systems and related applications. It also provides engineering, consulting, training and maintenance services for its customer base.

USTeleCenters, founded in 1986, has equipment distribution partnerships with Ascend, Northern Telecom and PictureTel, and markets network services nationally through agency agreements with Bell Atlantic, GTE, Nynex, Southwestern Bell and Sprint.
