Bloomingdale, NJ – July 27, 2007 – VMC Group, a world leader in innovative shock, seismic, vibration and noise control products, today announced that their Wire Rope division, Aeroflex International Isolators, has joined forces with IDC International, Inc. headquartered in Puerto Rico. A definite agreement was signed in June 2007 consummating the deal, which is phase one of a multi-phase agreement. This transaction, which is another key component of VMC Group’s strategy to deliver engineered solutions to its ever-growing global client base, positions VMC Group with an even larger market share of the wire rope isolator industry.
