Our History

Amphenol Antenna Solutions has nearly 100 years combined experience in antenna design and manufacturing.

Amphenol

Amphenol Corporation was founded in Chicago in 1932 by entrepreneur Arthur J. Schmitt, whose first product was a tube socket for radio tubes.  Amphenol is a portmanteau from the corporation’s original name, American Phenolic Corp.  Amphenol expanded significantly during World War II, when the company became the primary manufacturer of connectors used in military hardware, including airplanes and radios.

Jaybeam

Jaybeam Ltd. was established in 1948 in the UK as a developer of high reliability antennas serving the broadcast and military markets.  The company expanded over the years becoming a supplier of PMR/Trunked Radio and Cellular Base Station antennas for a worldwide customer base.  In 1987, Jaybeam Ltd. joined with MAT Equipment adding Vehicular Mobile, Portable and Marine Mobile antennas to the product portfolio.  In 2005, the company acquired CSA Wireless and changed their name to Jaybeam Wireless.

Antel

Antel International was founded in Sweden in 1979 by Stefan Eriksson with the sole purpose of designing and manufacturing base station antennas.  The first project for the company was providing antennas for the Swedish nationwide cellular market.  Antel antennas quickly became known for quality construction and consistent performance due in part to the all-mechanical design referred to as True Transmission Line Technology, a design adapted from the broadcast industry.
