Jampro Antennas, Inc., has acquired the Alan Dick Broadcast (ADBL) Division of ADC UK Ltd. The deal for U.K. based ADBL, which is one of the oldest names in Europe for broadcast antennas, combiners/filters, towers and broadcast infrastructure service, will strengthen Jampro's product lines and already extensive international presence.
Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
"ADBL is a true pioneer in the world-wide broadcast industry bringing numerous innovations to market ahead of their time," commented Alex Perchevitch, Jampro's president, in a statement. "Our united efforts and product lines will benefit our customers with stronger R&D across all ranges, improved delivery capabilities, and reduced shipping costs.

ADBL will remain in the UK and operate as a division of Jampro Antennas with the same management, engineering and production staffs.
