Elenos acquires Broadcast Electronics

Italian-based, FM transmitter manufacturer Elenos has acquired US-based radio equipment maker Broadcast Electronics.

Broadcast Electronics has been a provider of FM and AM transmitters for more than 50 years. Founded in 1959, BE began manufacturing transmitters in 1977, and is now the largest manufacturer of radio equipment in the United States, the  company claims.

While the terms of the acquisition were not announced, the official release stated that the acquisition aims to provide both companies with an increased global presence, and furthers Elenos’ mission to build high-quality, reliable transmitters. The transaction also provides Broadcast Engineering with access to Itelco analog and digital TV transmitter technology that was acquired by Elenos in 2015.
