Ferrite Microwave Technologies and Mega Industries merge to create a global leader in high-power microwave components and systems. As a result of the merger, the two companies now operate under a new holding company, named Microwave Techniques LLC. The Microwave Techniques group also includes Micro Communications Inc (MCi) and FXR microwave dummy load product lines, both of which were acquired in recent years by Mega Industries.
The combined entities of Mega, Ferrite, Micro Communications, and the FXR microwave dummy load product lines emerges with Microwave Techniques as a single source for high-power microwave needs. The group manufactures a wide line of components (circulators, loads, isolators, windows, power combiners, rigid and flexible waveguide), as well as a complete line of industrial microwave systems for food processing, drying, heating with advanced microwave research and development.
