Base station antenna vendor, CellMax Technologies has acquired the Swedish consulting company Antenna Solutions. The company has been a long term partner of CellMax and will now focus entirely on the development of CellMax base station antennas.
The acquisition takes effect next March and Antenna Solution's two founders, antenna development experts Stefan Jonsson and Dan Karlsson, will then join CellMax's research and development team in Kista, Sweden.
"We are happy to now have secured the long term services of two of the best antenna developers in the world", said Einar Ahlström, CEO, CellMax. "We have for many years had a good professional relationship with Antenna Solutions. This acquisition will take it one step further and guarantee the continued development and improvement in what is already by far the most efficient antennas in the world."
The acquisition coincides with the construction of a new indoor antenna research, test and measurement lab that will be built by CellMax in Kista, just north of Stockholm, Sweden. Kista is a cluster in mobile communications and home to many ICT related companies (including the global headquarters of Ericsson).
