Telene went through a number of ownership changes over the next decade. During that time, an excellent working relationship was formed between the Telene team and the Japanese firm Rimtec on a number of global projects, which eventually culminated in the purchase of the Telene business by Rimtec in 2006.
Telene is a subsidiary of Rimtec Corporation
