Poynting’s acquisition of Radiant Antennas will increase the JSE-listed company’s portfolio and unlock operational efficiencies.

JSE-listed Poynting Antennas has acquired local antenna manufacturer Radiant Antennas, the company announced yesterday.

Poynting, which designs, manufactures and supplies antennas and telecommunication products to the cellular, wireless data and defence markets in SA and internationally, has up until now offered high-frequency (HF), very high frequency (VHF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) services, ITWeb reports.
