Naprotek acquires RF/microwave assembly & test firm SemiGen

Naprotek LLC of San Jose, CA, USA, a provider of quick-turn electronics manufacturing, has completed the acquisition of privately held company SemiGen Inc of Londonderry, NH, USA – an ISO- and ITAR-registered RF/microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center. This increases Naprotek’s capabilities to include advanced RF/microwave products, assembly and test services, and expands its reach across the USA.

Founded in 2009, SemiGen provides products and services to the RF/microwave community across markets including defense, SATCOM, space and advanced communications. Products include passive and active semiconductor components ranging from attenuators, capacitors, diodes, filters and resistors to complex thin-film circuits. Their manufacturing services span from RF/microwave and PCB assembly to performance testing and in-house ion beam foundry.

“We are excited to expand Naprotek’s capabilities and geographical reach with highly engineered products and services from SemiGen,” says Naprotek’s president & CEO Daniel Everitt. “SemiGen brings deep technical expertise in RF/microwave technologies, aligning perfectly with Naprotek’s core offering... Our customers may now leverage full-service offerings across RF/microwave microelectronics, SMT, hybrid assembly and semiconductor products. This is a very important step in our growth strategy and was meaningfully informed by our customers’ feedback and technology roadmaps,” he adds.

“Together Naprotek and SemiGen offer a unique combination of technical skills, products, manufacturing services, and technology solutions,” claims SemiGen’s president Tim Filteau (who will continue to lead SemiGen). “This acquisition will enhance growth and enable innovation for our customers,” he believes. 

Naprotek, which was acquired by Edgewater Capital Partners of Cleveland, OH, USA in December 2020, is strategically growing its capabilities in high-quality, technically differentiated electronic technology solutions to better serve its customers and their high-reliability applications. Naprotek’s rapid engineering change management process, commitment to quality, and personalized customer service are essential elements when time-to-market is critical, it is claimed.

“We plan to continue to add additional differentiated technology capabilities to the Naprotek platform to better service our customers within the high-reliability markets,” says Edgewater partner Pete Ostergard.
