Abracon Acquires Frequency Control Devices Expert, ILSI America

Global manufacturer of frequency control, RF, and connectivity solutions, Abracon, has announced the successful acquisition of ILSI America, a privately held market leader of frequency control devices, and its subsidiaries. Abracon will continue supporting ILSI America and its ILSI, MMD, Ecliptek and Oscilent brands for new and existing customers. The ILSI America product portfolio complements Abracon's existing product offerings and provides Abracon's global customer base with a broader range of solutions.

ILSI America was founded in 1987 with a mission to become a world class supplier of frequency control products. Through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions, it is now a global leader in the design, manufacturing, and supply of a broad range of components, across four brands –ILSI, MMD, Ecliptek, and Oscilent. ILSI America fulfills a wide scope of requirements that meet the strict standard of both OEM and CEM customers across many vertical markets via the following products: quartz crystals, crystal oscillators, MEMS oscillators, TCXOs, VCXOs, OCXO, filters, and resonators. 

According to Abracon CEO Michael Calabria, the acquisition supports Abracon's strategy to continue expanding its presence as a leader in the timing and synchronization market. ILSI America brings strong brand recognition and an excellent reputation for service in the electronics industry.

ILSI America is headquartered in Reno, Nevada, with locations in Southern California, Beijing and Hong Kong. The company is recognized as a flexible and responsive organization that provides turnkey supply chain management solutions, programming services and engineering support. Both, Abracon and ILSI America, share a commitment to applied innovation, agile support and service quality. The two companies will merge business operations under Abracon, LLC to better serve customer and channel partner needs.

ILSI President Gary Schmidt will continue serving in an executive role and will report to Michael Calabria. The integration has a March 2020 target completion date, and the ILSI America brands will then become available through Abracon's global distribution network. The acquisition marks Abracon's first-ever corporate extension.
