RF Industries Announces Acquisition of Schroff Technologies

Interconnect products and systems expert, RF Industries, has announced the acquisition of Schroff Technologies International, a privately owned Rhode Island-based manufacturer of products serving the high growth wireless, telecom, and cable markets.

Schrofftech has two primary product offerings. The first is an energy-efficient cooling system for wireless base stations and remote equipment shelters that can decrease a telecom carrier’s air conditioning costs up to 75 percent. The second is a family of custom designed, pole-ready 5G small cell integrated enclosures. These enclosures provide improved aesthetics and reduce small cell installation time from days to hours.

Robert Dawson, President and CEO of RF Industries, believes, Schrofftech has a great reputation in the market for providing quality solutions to their customers and their offerings of passive and integrated solutions for the communications marketplace are a great fit with RF Industries. Schrofftech’s product offerings will now ally with RF Industries’ focus on the 5G small cell market and the significant growth opportunities they see in servicing that market over the next several years.

David Therrien, President of Schroff Technologies, feels that they can now take advantage of a vertical supply chain architecture to bring benefit to their shared customers. Having access to top quality RF and fiber cable assemblies is a strong complement to Schroff’s integrated 5G enclosure product offering. This natural synergy, combined with exposure to a broader customer base, provides them a significant growth opportunity in the coming years.

Schroff Technologies International primarily serves the high growth wireless, telecom and cable markets. They offer energy efficient cooling / temperature control and filtration systems for telecom shelters, outdoor enclosures and battery /power rooms for the telecom and cable industries. The company also retrofits existing communications equipment infrastructure for capacity upgrades and thermal efficiencies resulting in compelling capital and energy cost savings. Based in Rhode Island, it was founded in 2005 and is ISO 9001:2015 certified.
