GatesAir has acquired Brescia, Italy-based transmitter manufacturer Onetastic S.r.l (ONEtastic).
Founded in 2010, ONEtastic provides television, digital radio and RF systems to clients in the broadcast, telecom, scientific and government verticals.
According to GatesAir, the acquisition strengthens its growing presence in Europe. The company began expanding its global sales and business development teams worldwide in 2018. This has included several new leadership positions created to serve the European market.
“The acquisition of ONEtastic underscores our commitment to the broadcast market and accelerates the investments we are making in our transmission portfolio,” said Bruce D. Swail, CEO of GatesAir.
“The unique, innovative and award-winning products and technologies from ONEtastic add new capabilities to our portfolio and complement our transmission and transport platforms. The addition of an experienced and highly talented research, development and services team from ONEtastic further expands our world-class engineering and support expertise to create new innovations for the broadcast segment and beyond. Their central European Union location strengthens our International footprint and commitment to global growth.”
GatesAir said in a release that it would retain the entire ONEtastic staff and its Brescia facility, which will continue operations as GatesAir S.r.l. “Longtime ONEtastic CEO Luca Saleri will remain in a leadership role as general manager of GatesAir S.r.l., while ONEtastic founder Carlo Bombelli will also be a key contributor to the GatesAir team moving forward,” it stated.
