Buchloe/Landsberg, April 2013
Funkwerk Avionics acquires airborne transceivers from Dittel Messtechnik

With effect from 1st of May 2013 Funkwerk Avionics GmbH, in Buchloe/Germany, has acquired the rights to produce and market the airborne transceivers FSG90 and FSG2/ from Dittel Messtechnik GmbH, in Landsberg/Germany, by means of an asset deal.

The airborne transceivers FSG90 and FSG2T are in world-wide operation for decades with an excellent reputation for high equipment reliability, long working life cycle and very robust equipment design. The FSG90 transceiver fulfills the requirements of the implementing regulation of the European Commission of 16 November 2012 with respect to the 8,33 kHz channel spacing, and can be used also in its corresponding base transceiver configuration.

Dittel Messtechnik GmbH, founded in 1959, started its activities in the field of Airborne Transceivers and Power Electronics. Over the years it differentiated its product portfolio making the measuring technology division its core business. In 2012 Dittel Messtechnik GmbH has been acquired by the Marposs Group. In order to concentrate itself on its core activities as a result of a strategic decision from the new shareholders, Dittel Messtechnik GmbH has decided to part from these products.

Funkwerk Avionics today is a market leader in Europe in terms of sales of aircraft radio equipment and mode S transponders for the application in General Aviation. With the acquisition of the aircraft radio equipment FSG90 and FSG2T the company expands its product portfolio in terms of new market segments and an expansion of business outside Europe. "We are delighted with the acquisition of Dittel aeronautical radio equipment to be able to continue the successful global commercialization of these universally recognised devices in the interest of numerous existing customers. The acquisition complements our radio product line and will lead to new global business", Funkwerk Avionics' CEO Dr. Thomas Wittig concludes. (press release for download)
