Steatite Ltd is pleased to announce the opening of its new Antennas facility in Leominster, Herefordshire.
The Antennas business unit at Steatite was created through the acquisition of Q-par Angus Limited in May 2013. Since the acquisition, the unit has developed ever more complex antenna solutions for its global client base through technological innovation and advanced design. To support the growth of Steatite Antennas and to enable advancements in antenna testing, the operations moved to the new site in January 2017.
The new facility has been purpose built to enable the design, manufacture and testing of complex systems and contains a specialist near-field RF test chamber large enough to accommodate antennas with dish dimensions up to 3 meters in diameter.
The site was opened by the current Conservative Party candidate for North Herefordshire, Bill Wiggin.
Commenting on the opening, Matthew Richards, MD of Steatite, said:
“This is a world-class facility, incorporating some of the most advanced near-field testing capabilities in the UK. It represents a significant investment by the Company into its antennas business and will enable Steatite to remain at the cutting edge of antenna design, manufacture and testing.”
