Kymeta Corporation has acquired satellite service provider Lepton Global Solutions, which will become a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of Kymeta Corporation.
Established in 2013, Lepton Global Solutions is a provider of satellite-based customised turnkey communications solutions and services with expertise in the Intelligence Community (IC), Special Operations Command (SOC) and other government sectors.
With the acquisition, Kymeta aims to pursue key opportunities with US defense and government customers in locations around the world. As a rapidly growing satellite communication services provider with global and scalable network infrastructure, the company provides customised end-to-end connectivity solutions that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to meet the needs of customers wherever they are located.
Lepton currently hosts Kymeta’s satellite connectivity solutions. As a combined entity, the new offerings and capabilities promise to offer complete, bundled solutions to the market based on best-in-class technologies and tailored customer-centric services.
Current Lepton customers will experience no interruption in service in the short-term and will continue receiving Lepton’s full suite of products, services, and support. Over the long-term, customers will enjoy the benefits of joint Kymeta-Lepton collaboration.
“Having a turnkey satellite service provider like Lepton accelerates Kymeta’s ability to successfully penetrate US military and government customers in partnership with a well-established brand, deep channel experience, and network support for those verticals. The combination of Kymeta’s revolutionary hardware, together with Lepton’s service offerings, will be a winning combination that will be hard to beat. We are excited to bring Rob Weitendorf, Isabel LeBoutillier, and their team into the Kymeta family and thus expand and accelerate our ability to go to market,” said Walter Berger, President and COO of Kymeta.
Rob Weitendorf, the Managing Partner at Lepton, remarked: “Government and commercial sectors need the most reliable and seamless connectivity to successfully fulfil their daily missions. This new venture will enable our customers to leverage the expertise of Lepton and Kymeta to receive more customised services and solutions while maintaining Lepton’s legacy of providing the best-of-breed solutions always with a focus on the customer’s mission.”
Weitendorf further said: “I can’t think of a better partner than Kymeta to launch this new era of connectivity with as we bring new offerings to the market in satellite and cellular communications around the world.”
