Hunter Acquires Spectral Response in EMS Deal

20 March 2014

Hunter Technology Corp. has acquired Spectral Response LLC, an electronics manufacturing company that provides design and manufacturing services to RF OEMs and other electronics companies. The acquisition of Spectral Response was the second major purchase in the last six months for Hunter Technology, an EMS provider based in Milpitas, Calif. Last October, the company bought the assets of NBS Designs, also headquartered in Milpitas. Hunter Technology President Joseph O’Neil said with the acquisition of NBS’ assets, his company “added significant engineering resources in PCB design, gained leading-edge DF(x) review capability, doubled our floor space [and] tripled our SMT capacity.” With the acquisition of Spectral Response’s assets, Hunter Technology can offer OEM customers design, new product introduction, volume manufacturing and test, tune and integration in both California and Georgia. It can also provide warranty, repair and third-party logistics services. “For OEMs who value ‘Made in the USA,’ we have them covered from coast to coast,” said O’Neil. The company said the recent acquisition will help Hunter lower costs and reduce time-to-market through the use of design and engineering solutions combined with vertical integration. Hunter Technology’s customers include OEMs in high-reliability industries such as medical, networking, test, measurement, defense and aerospace. It helps design and manufacture frequency synthesizers, microwave receivers, up/down converters and MM-wave subsystems.
