With the deal, Riedel assumes a majority financial position in PIDSO, accelerating development of solutions that leverage PIDSO antenna systems with Riedel’s family of communications systems.
“With its innovative solutions in the field of high-performance antennas, PIDSO not only complements our product portfolio, but also fits right into our company philosophy. Embracing advanced technologies and delivering visionary solutions to real-world challenges have always been part of Riedel’s trademark,” says Thomas Riedel, Founder and CEO of Riedel. “Both companies will be able to move forward based on a very sound economic and technological foundation, giving our new collaboration the best-possible beginning.”
PIDSO offers expertise in the development and manufacture of antennas and antenna systems that can be integrated into existing building spaces. The company’s antennas are used in the automotive industry, aircraft construction (particularly for unmanned aircraft), logistics control systems, and video/cinema production.
