San Diego-based RF Industries, a national manufacturer and marketer of interconnect products and systems, said it has acquired Schroff Technologies International, Inc., a privately owned Rhode Island-based manufacturer of products serving the high growth wireless, telecom, and cable markets.

Schroff Technologies has two primary product offerings. The first is an energy-efficient cooling system for wireless base stations and remote equipment shelters that can decrease a telecom carrier’s air conditioning costs up to 75 percent. Schrofftech’s second product line is a family of custom designed, pole-ready 5G small cell integrated enclosures. 

These enclosures provide improved aesthetics and reduce small cell installation time from days to hours.

RF Industries President/CEO Robert Dawson commented, “Schrofftech has a great reputation in the market for providing quality solutions to their customers. Their offerings of passive and integrated solutions for the communications marketplace are a great fit with RF Industries. We are excited to welcome the talented employees from Schrofftech to the RF Industries team and believe that their product offerings fit perfectly with our focus on the 5G small cell market and the significant growth opportunities we see in servicing that market over the next several years.”

“From day one we can take advantage of a vertical supply chain architecture to bring benefit to our shared customers. Having access to top quality RF and fiber cable assemblies is a strong complement to our integrated 5G enclosure product offering,” observed Schroff Technologies President David Therrien. “This natural synergy, combined with exposure to a broader customer base, provides us with a significant growth opportunity in the coming years.”
