Gowanda, NY, USA - Gowanda Electronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of precision electronic components and inductors for power, radio frequency (RF), and high frequency (HF) applications, is teaming up with its newly acquired sister company, Instec Filters, to provide a broader range of passive electronic components to the global marketplace.

Learn more at Gowanda Electronics’ Booth #2420 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2012) June 19 - 21, 2012 in Montreal, Quebec (Canada), where Gowanda and Instec products will be featured.

Instec Filters is a global supplier of EMI/RFI filters, feedthroughs, and filter assemblies. The company was located in California but recently moved its operations to Arcade, NY, near Gowanda in Upstate New York.

Instec Filters President Dan Jordan said, “Instec is well-established in the European market. This new arrangement with Gowanda will enable us to expand quickly into the North American market by leveraging the strengths of both companies.”

Jordan added, “Instec is known for its quick turn-around on quotes, prototypes and production; the company’s typical 2-week lead time for manufacturing production quantities is impressive compared to most other suppliers in the industry.”

Denis Kohlhagen, Gowanda Electronics’ Director of Sales said, “This arrangement with Instec Filters will enable Gowanda to accelerate its plans for growth in strategically important products and markets due to synergies in technology, design, manufacturing, sales channels and customers. We look forward to expanding our line of passive components in order to serve the needs of the global electronics marketplace.”

Gowanda Holdings, the parent organization, now owns both Gowanda Electronics and Instec Filters. It is anticipated that other arrangements will be announced in the future as Gowanda grows its passives portfolio.
