Spectrum Control, expects to bolster its line of advanced systems and components by adding Amplifonix, which supplies RF amplifiers, switches, detectors, integrated systems, and voltage controlled oscillators.

"We believe this acquisition, combined with our acquisition last October of the Components Business Unit of Remec, will position us as a leader in the hybrid amplifier marketplace," said Dick Southworth, president and chief executive of Spectrum Control, in a statement.

The company acquired the RF and microwave Components Business Unit of Remec Inc. for $8 million.

"Based upon current market conditions and customer order rates, we expect Amplifonix sales to approximate $10 to $12 million during the next twelve months," Southworth added.
