Farr Family Resumes Ownership of Haigh-Farr: Continuing Tradition of Providing High Performance Antennas from Concept to Creation
BEDFORD, NH, JUNE 5, 2017 – Haigh-Farr, Inc. (Haigh-Farr), the world leader in the design, development, manufacture and test of conformal high-performance antennas for the defense, space and commercial industry, is pleased to announce that the Company has been re-acquired by its original owners, David and Norene Farr. With Norene Farr assuming the position of CEO and David Farr as President, Haigh-Farr will now be certified as a Woman Owned Small Business.
Haigh-Farr, in business for over fifty years, 45 of those years owned by the Farr family, was sold by the Farr’s to the Vitec Group, plc in 2011. The Farr’s continued to run the business during Vitec’s ownership. With Vitec’s decision to exit the Military and Aerospace market space in 2016, the Farr’s have re-acquired the business effective May 9, 2017 effecting an essentially seamless transition of ownership.
“Throughout our association with Vitec, we remained passionate about the business, including our employees, customers, the technology and contribution to the end users of our products. It was an easy decision to re-acquire the Company, and continue our heritage of delivering high performing antenna products now and into the future,” states Norene Farr, CEO of Haigh-Farr.
The acquisition will have no impact on the operations of Haigh-Farr. The facilities, personnel, processes and day-to-day running of the Company will remain as it has been even during Vitec’s ownership – in the hands of the Farr’s.
Haigh-Farr has extensive experience designing, manufacturing and qualifying antennas and their support equipment for a multitude of airborne applications, including launch vehicles, space craft, missiles, projectiles, targets, UAV’s, commercial aircraft and race cars.
