Austin, Texas-based Abracon — a supplier of frequency control, timing, power, magnetics and antenna solutions — announced that it has acquired Burlington, Wisconsin-based manufacturer NEL Frequency Controls in a move to expand its precision timing product offering.
Abracon and NEL Frequency Controls will accelerate innovation, new product development, time-to-market, and enterprise growth by combining core strengths across product management, engineering, sales and marketing, Abracon officials said in a July 5 news release.
“This alliance allows both companies to share expertise from their respective markets, collaborate on product strategies, enhance and scale go-to-market capabilities, and better serve customers through complementary product offerings,” the company said.
