London, April 1, 2019 – Surface Technologies International, Ltd. (STI) an expert in contract electronics manufacturing serving world-class customers in high-reliability industries, and a subsidiary of the top EMS provider IMI, has forged a partnership with Phasor, Inc. a developer of leading, enterprise-grade electronically-steered antenna (ESA) systems.

The partnership will bring industry-leading manufacturing engineering capabilities in Phasor’s production of ESA systems, which will quickly ramp up production to meet customer demand. Phasor's antennas have a very low profile (2" high), low weight, solid-state electronically-steerable antenna with no moving parts, making it more reliable and resilient than mechanically steered antennas.

"STI is delighted to have been selected by Phasor as their manufacturing partner for their commercial ESA production requirements. The products will be manufactured in the STI Poynton facility, an industry-leading center manufacturing high-quality electronic systems. We are looking forward to seeing Phasor grow in this rapidly expanding market," said Simon Best, STI Managing Director.

With the partnership, Phasor will continue to focus on its core competencies in advanced ESA technology development, product design and development, and market development. "STI brings vast experience to the table and consistently reaches the highest technical standards within demanding timeframes to offer a manufacturing solution with world-class technical competence. This is essential as we move into commercial production and, together, we look forward to making our technology and products commercially available," said David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor.
