ETS-Lindgren is an innovator of systems and components for the detection, measurement and management of electromagnetic, magnetic, and acoustic energy. We adapt new technologies and apply proven engineering principles to create value-added solutions for our customers.
Our company began in 1995 when industry leaders EMCO, Rantec, and Ray Proof combined their resources to create EMC Test Systems. While our formation is recent, the roots of each company run deep. Ray Proof started as a supplier of medical X-ray shielding in 1932. Rantec led in the development of anechoic absorber and microwave chambers for the military during the early 1970s. EMCO (The Electro-Mechanics Company) formed as an outgrowth of magnetic field and radio frequency research in the 1960s.
In 1997, EMC Test Systems established a European presence with the purchase of Euroshield OY. The company is best known for developing “pan-type” RF shielding and a unique shielded door technology that remains the preferred choice today.
The acquisition of Lindgren RF Enclosures in 2000 doubled the size of our company and gave us immediate leadership in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shield rooms. In addition, it also provided an Asian presence through a Singapore established several years earlier. After the acquisition, our company name was changed to ETS-Lindgren.
Holaday Industries was also acquired in 2000. The company pioneered technology used in today's electromagnetic field sensing (EMF) systems for test and measurement, and health and safety applications.
In 2002, ETS-Lindgren purchased Acoustic Systems, a leading supplier for acoustic test and measurement, audiology, and broadcast applications.
Japanese and Chinese acquisitions made during 2002 provided new manufacturing capability in Asia. Since then, additional customer support offices have been added in Beijing, Shenzhen, and Shanghai.
In 2006, ETS-Lindgren opened a new office in Taiwan to serve the growing customer base in that country. During the same year, the company announced a 4,180 square-meter (45,000 square-foot) expansion at its Cedar Park, Texas facility. Headquartered in Cedar Park, Texas, ETS-Lindgren employs more than 750 professionals in offices and manufacturing facilities around the world. They are supported by a team of more than 60 local, independent representatives and distributors.
A new office was opened in Bengaluru, India during 2010 to accommodate ETS-Lindgren’s growing market share in that country. The office provides technical support, project management, installation and system integration services.
ETS-Lindgren is a subsidiary of ESCO Technologies, a leading supplier of engineered products for industrial and commercial markets. ESCO is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, and listed on the New York Stock Exchange with symbol ESE.
