Centurion Celebrates 25 Wireless Years of Antenna Design

3/24/2003 - Centurion Wireless Technologies, Inc., announced at IWCE, the premier public safety mobile communications conference and exposition, it is celebrating 25 years as the leading designer and manufacturer of antennas and power products for wireless communications. Founded in 1978 by Gary and Susan Kuck who saw the need for durable and high performing portable antennas, Centurion has since grown to approximately 1,500 employees at five manufacturing facilities and seven design centers around the globe.

Centurion first set the industry standard for quality and innovation of design with its Tuf Duck antenna for the Land Mobile Radio (LMR) market. Over the years, Centurion has brought this industry leadership to new market segments, expanding its product base from LMR antennas and batteries to antenna and power product applications for cellular handsets, data collection devices, wireless local area networks (WLAN), wireless local loop, in-building wireless, Satellite Radio, telemetry, telematics and Bluetooth.

"I am proud to look back on our 25 years as an industry leader and see how we have progressed the innovation of wireless component design and manufacturing processes," said Gary Kuck, founder and CEO of Centurion. "Through a combination of top notch employees, cutting edge research and development, and strategic partnerships, Centurion certainly has made wireless history."

Centurion offers in-house custom design, tooling, mold fitting and tactical automation in the production process to produce antennas and power products to fit any customer-specific need. Their complete vertical integration allows them to control the entire design to manufacturing process, delivering an extremely fast speed to market time. The company has also developed cutting edge engineering and design techniques, including its two-shot molding process for antenna manufacturing.

Centurion has made several strategic acquisitions to expand their product lines, manufacturing capabilities and customer base. Most recently, in November of 2002, Centurion acquired a division of Swedish based Allgon AB that designs and manufacturers antennas for mobile phones and communication devices, now named AMC Centurion. The acquisitions of Xertex Technologies and Rangestar at the turn of the century were implemental in expanding Centurion's presence in the in-building, wireless device and telematics antenna segments.
