Taoglas acquires ThinkWireless to help grow automotive presence

 

Provider of IoT and automotive antenna and RF solutions, Taoglas has announced the completion of its acquisition of ThinkWireless, Inc., an antenna provider that specialises in the design, development and production of combination antenna systems for the commercial vehicle market.

The ThinkWireless brand will become ThinkWireless, a Taoglas company. ThinkWireless Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Argy Petros and Director of RF Technology Pierre Wassom will remain.

“ThinkWireless has made a name for itself as a designer and developer of high-quality combination antenna systems with deep roots in the commercial trucking industry, where infotainment services, including good quality of service from satellite and AM/FM radio, weather band and GNSS are crucial,” said Ronan Quinlan, Co-CEO, Taoglas.

“As we continue to explore potential acquisitions to strengthen the Taoglas brand, we were struck by how similar ThinkWireless’ approach to antenna design and manufacturing is to our own commitment to excellence. This is a great acquisition for the Taoglas Group as we look to further expand into new, synergistic markets such as the commercial vehicle industry.”

ThinkWireless, headquartered in Coconut Creek, Florida, specialises in the design, development and production of combination antenna systems that incorporate two or more frequency bands, including those for SiriusXM satellite radio, GPS, AM/FM, weather band, DAB, HDTV, WiFi, Bluetooth, and LTE. The ThinkWireless facilities will become Taoglas’ ninth design and development center globally, and the third in the US, alongside centres in San Diego and Minneapolis.

“Taoglas is well-known as a global brand that delivers the highest quality antennas and RF solutions to the automotive, IoT and other markets,” Petros said.

“Taoglas’ global scale and sales channels are unparalleled and will help grow the reach of ThinkWireless’ solutions in the trucking and commercial vehicle industry around the world.”
