Azdec Acquisition Brings Secure IR Communications to Link Microtek

Link Microtek : 18 February, 2010  (Company News)
RF and Microwave component manufacturer acquires specialist company in infra-red digital communication systems
Link Microtek, a UK manufacturer and supplier of RF and microwave
components, subsystems and instrumentation, has completed the acquisition of
Southampton-based Azdec, which specialises in the design and manufacture
of infra-red digital communications systems for military and industrial

The acquisition will ensure the long-term future of the Azdec brand and
products, with the company operating as a subsidiary of Link Microtek.

Azdec's Infra-Com system provides secure and interference-free short-range
mobile voice communications. Particularly suitable for use in areas of high
electrical or acoustic noise, the system allows operators to speak to each
other or to a central base station without using radio signals.

Commenting on the acquisition, Link Microtek's managing director, Steve
Cranstone, said: 'We are very excited about the purchase of Azdec, not only
because of the synergy with Link's own defence-electronics business but also
because of the enormous potential that the Infra-Com system offers in terms
of export sales.'

While Azdec's day-to-day operations will continue unaffected by the change
of ownership, Link Microtek will be increasing the company's production
capacity, enhancing its support and service facilities, and seeking to boost
its presence in international markets.
