Chatsworth Products Inc. (CPI) acquired Oberon Inc., a provider of mounting solutions for wireless access points and antennas, on October 8. Pennsylvania-based Oberon provides mounting solutions for wireless access points and antennas.
“The combined expertise of both companies will benefit all customers looking to extend their network to the edge and outdoor environments, with an enhanced CPI portfolio that now includes a wider selection of indoor and outdoor wireless enclosures and WiFi mounting solutions,” Chatsworth Products said when announcing the acquisition.
“With artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Industrial IoT driving ubiquitous connectivity, edge computing is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have for any business that wants to remain competitive now and in the future,” said Michael Custer, CPI’s president and chief executive officer. “CPI is proud to be a stronghold in the industry and this acquisition underscores this vision.”
Oberon is now a wholly owned subsidiary of CPI and will continue to be managed by its current leadership team, including Oberon’s president and chief executive officer Scott D. Thompson.
“Oberon shares CPI’s vision of helping customers successfully embrace digital transformation,” Thompson said. “We are excited to be part of a pioneering organization that not only understands our products, but also the industry as a whole. As we continue our paths together, we hope to solve the challenges of the digital era with breakthrough technology and unique networking infrastructure solutions.”
