October 05, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Specialist RF components distributors Globes Elektronik of Germany and Link Microtek of the UK have created a new company to deliver their services and distribute microwave and RF components in France, as Transtech Technologies SAS.

Globes and Link are each well established in the microwave representation business in their respective territories and have had a long association, partnering on various projects and joint ventures for many years. The new company will act as a technical representative in France for manufacturers of microwave and RF products.

The managing directors of the two companies, Ulrich Blievernicht and Steve Cranstone, are both directors of Transtech, and sales activity will be spearheaded by Véronique Subrebost, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the microwave sector in France.

Transtech has already signed up three principals from the USA to get the ball rolling: Ferrite Microwave Technologies, the manufacturer of high-power microwave components; Lark Engineering, which produces microwave and RF filters; and Communication Components Inc., (CCI), which supplies mobile infrastructure products.

In addition, Transtech will of course be representing Link Microtek’s own manufactured products, including rotary joints, waveguide components, the Azdec infrared secure communications system and the EMILI 3 liquid explosive detection system. The key sectors for Transtech will be defence, space, homeland security, telecoms, automotive and medical.
