Amphenol has bought Airmar Technology, a US developer of ultrasonic transducer and Chirp technology.

Ultrasonic transducer maker Airmar is now part of the Amphenol Interconnect and Sensor Systems Division, joining several other sensor and interconnect businesses, and will continue to retain its headquarters location in Milford, New Hampshire. 

Airmar has a global team of highly experienced scientists, designers, engineers and technicians, as well as a vertically integrated business model working on transducers for a diverse range of applications, including air-ranging industrial transducers, underwater scientific and survey transducers, weather sensing instruments, and an extensive line of marine transducers, headlined by the latest Chirp-ready products. The company consists of Airmar Technology, Marport, MSI Transducers, and Gemeco.

“Amphenol has a strong focus on innovation and growth, which matches Airmar’s culture. Being a part of the Amphenol family means Airmar and other Amphenol businesses will benefit from sharing technology and expertise. We look forward to future collaboration,” said Steve Boucher, General Manager and founder of Airmar. 

“We are thrilled to have Airmar join Amphenol. The Airmar leadership team, their technology and their leadership in the marine market are a great addition to our well-diversified sensor portfolio,” said Peter Straub, President of Amphenol’s Interconnect and Sensor Systems Division.;
