Fairview, PA; Delmar, DE— Spectrum Control Inc. recently acquired all of the outstanding common stock of Salisbury Engineering Inc. (SEI). Spectrum designs and manufactures electronic control products and systems.

SEI designs and manufactures RF and microwave components and systems used primarily in military and aerospace applications. The firm employs 40 people, and its annual sales were ap-proximately $4 million in 2003.

'With this acquisition, we're significantly expanding our microwave technology and product offerings,' says Dick Southworth, Spectrum's president and CEO. 'SEI's current products include microwave synthesizers, multi-channel filter banks and preselectors, and GPS low-noise amplifiers. These complex systems incorporate advanced technologies and significantly expand our microwave capabilities.

'In addition, SEI's microwave component offerings, such as miniature chip filters, lumped element filters, band reject filters, cavity filters and waveguides, are a natural complement to our existing frequency control product group. The expansion of our product offerings, particularly with more complex advanced systems, is a major element of our current strategic focus and long-term growth plan.'

Spectrum's solutions condition, regulate, transmit, receive and/or govern electronic per-formance. Its largest markets are in telecommunications equipment and military/aerospace, with applications in wireless base stations, broadband switching equipment, global positioning systems, secure communications, smart weapons and munitions, and avionic upgrades. Automotive represents an emerging market for Spectrum's products, with applications in dc motors, telematics, and electronic safety controls. Other markets for the company's products include medical instrumentation, industrial equipment, computers, and storage devices.
