AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation Celebrates 45th Anniversary

AR Headquarters with New ExpansionSouderton, PA — September 17, 2014 — AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is celebrating its 45th anniversary. The leading supplier of EMC RF/Microwave instrumentation amplifiers and test equipment started 45 years ago in the Shep’s basement! As he recalls, "We started the company in my basement because the only place we could go from there was up."

The founders began by transporting the amplifier in the trunk of Shep's small car to potential customers. The firm now consists of four separate companies and over 200 employees. Shep notes, "AR began when we designed an amplifier for test applications. That amplifier solved some problems that testers were experiencing, and it made some tests easier to conduct. That's what we've been doing ever since: solving problems and making testing easier." AR consists of AR RF Microwave Instrumentation, AR Modular RF, AR Receiver Systems, and AR Europe. As Shep explains, "We're one company with infinite solutions."

Talk about the success of a company!...To go from working in a cellar and selling the first amplifier out of the back of a car to breaking ground for an additional 10,000 square feet on an already 54,400 square foot building just to manufacture and test high-power amplifiers in excess of 100 kW speaks for itself!
