Sub10 Systems acquires Huber+Suhner’s SENCITYLink product line
Production of the SENCITYLink range will move from Switzerland to Sub10’s headquarters in Devon in the South West of England. Affected employees of Huber+Suhner will move to other positions within the company.
Announcing the agreement, Sub10 Systems CEO Stuart Broome said: “These are exciting times at Sub10. Hot on the heels of our announced EMEA expansion, this agreement with Huber+Suhner will allow us to further develop and grow our business. We believe that the time is right for Millimetre Waveband (MMW) products and our single minded focus and approach to market will enable us to maximise the potential for the technology.”
Stuart Broome confirmed that Sub10 would continue to source components for the SENCITYLink 100, 160, 320 Mbps product line directly from Huber+Suhner. Sub10’s own range of Liberator products already uses components from the Swiss company.
For Huber+Suhner, Jean-Luc Gavelle, Chief Operating Officer of the Radio Frequency Division, said: “Our heritage and focus has always been the supply of components, systems and solutions for electrical and optical connectivity. The SENCITYLink solution, however, was outside of that core business. Huber+Suhner will continue to develop and grow its Radio Frequency business with cables, connectors, assemblies, antennas and lightning protection components for the communication, transportation, space, and instrumentation markets.”
