STATE COLLEGE, PA –
October 10, 2019 — Oberon Inc., a Pennsylvania-based provider of mounting solutions for wireless access points and antennas, was acquired this week by Chatsworth Products (CPI), a global manufacturer of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and power products, and industrial enclosures.
Since 1999, Oberon has offered the widest variety of ceiling, wall, outdoor, and challenging-environment mounting solutions for Wi-Fi access points from all leading wireless vendors. Oberon’s installation solutions have helped thousands of wireless professionals in the global healthcare, government, transportation and logistics, education, retail, hospitality, and manufacturing fields achieve optimum mobile network performance.
The combined expertise of both companies will benefit all customers looking to extend their network to the edge and outdoor environments, with an enhanced CPI portfolio that now includes a wider selection of indoor and outdoor wireless enclosures and Wi-Fi mounting solutions.
“With artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT driving ubiquitous connectivity, edge computing is no longer a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘must have’ for any business that wants to remain competitive now and in the future. CPI is proud to be a stronghold in the industry and this acquisition underscores this vision,” says Michael Custer, CPI President and CEO.
Effective immediately, Oberon is a wholly owned subsidiary of CPI, and will continue to be managed by its current leadership team, including Scott D. Thompson, Oberon President and CEO.
“Oberon shares CPI’s vision of helping customers successfully embrace digital transformation. We are excited to be part of a pioneering organization that not only understands our products, but also the industry as a whole. As we continue our paths together, we hope to solve the challenges of the digital era with breakthrough technology and unique networking infrastructure solutions,” says Thompson.
