Souderton, PA — July 30, 2019 — As a leader in EMC test equipment, Amplifier Research (AR) realized that testing new products and getting them to market quicker has become more critical than ever. AR knew it could help its customers by streamlining the process of creating EMC test chambers. So the company sought out a partner that builds EMC test chambers and shared its dedication to the highest quality and customer responsiveness.

AR eventually found such a partner in Comtest Engineering who has delivered over 1,000 chambers worldwide.

Now there’s a new partnership agreement between AR and Comtest Engineering that makes it possible to design, build, and service an EMC test facility using a single-source provider. This relationship combines the expertise of two of the most respected industry leaders with AR providing high-performance EMC instrumentation and system design expertise, and Comtest Engineering supplying best-in-class EMC chambers.

In North America, AR now distributes all Comtest Engineering products including chambers, shielded rooms, absorbers, and antenna measurement chambers. AR has the capability to separately provide EMC instrumentation and EMC test systems, and can now offer complete turnkey systems that include various types of chambers and all required test equipment from one reliable source.

“AR was founded 50 years ago on the principle that providing the best solutions and service should always be our top priorities,” says John Kim, Chief Operating Officer of AR. “The partnership with Comtest Engineering allows us to do just that for the growing EMC market.”

Bas de Groot, Managing Director of Comtest Engineering, echoes John Kim’s sentiments: “Since our companies serve the same customer base and have the same high standards for quality, reliability, and service, this partnership really is the perfect match. Our customers no longer have to shop around to come up with a working product, nor do they have to deal with potential warranty, planning, and budgeting issues. By offering a complete solution, we take on all of those responsibilities and make it much easier while assuring the highest quality.”
