Videocorp sells its security and AV business in Chile and Peru to Ricoh

Ricoh Videocorp

Latin America. 2023 will be a year for history at Videocorp. First, because it celebrates 40 years of being one of the most important players in the video security, Audio and Video (AV) and broadcast industries in Chile and other countries in the region. Second, because it has just been acquired by the manufacturer Ricoh.

Ventas de Seguridad spoke with Alfonso Vergara Rivera, who belongs to the family that until now owned Videocorp. He told us that "2 years ago Ricoh asked us to implement some projects. After the good result, InfoComm 2022 expressed interest in the acquisition, which we finalized after 16 months of negotiation."

Ricoh acquired ownership of the security and AV businesses in Chile and Peru, which will continue to operate under the name Videocorp. The Colombia office did not enter into the negotiation because its operation is mainly broadcast, but a commitment was made not to continue operations in the AV and security sectors.

Alfonso Vergara Rivera will continue to work with the company for the next three years as an advisor. 150 of Videocorp's 170 employees are now part of the Ricoh team, which has 3,000 employees in Latin America and 90,000 worldwide. Meanwhile, Felipe Hoyuela remains at the head of Videocorp.

"We have taken great care of our collaborators, to provide them with a good projection. We feel enormous satisfaction that collaborators, who have been with us for many years, continue with a good company," said Alfonso Vergara Rivera.

After this negotiation, the Vergara family does not dissociate itself from the industry, they continue with a significant investment in the rental company RLA Event Technologies. And the broadcast area, which accounts for 30% of Videocorp's business, is still in the hands of the family, under the name Dynamics Media Group, of which Alfonso Vergara Rivera is its CEO. This operation has a team of 10 people in Chile and 10 in Colombia.
