To enhance the global presence under one strong brand three Thomson Broadcast companies will be merged under the new name Ampegon, creating a powerful and market leading group.
Ampegon will serve the global radio transmission markets including scientific applications and green technologies with a complete product range tailored to all needs of its customers.
Offering its innovative and pioneering spirit with expertise of a century, Ampegon products stand for highest quality, reliability and best performance.
Ampegon will consist of the former Thomson Broadcast companies in Turgi (Switzerland), Schifferstadt (Germany), Beijing (China) and Sales office in Melbourne (Australia).
The name Ampegon describes the roots as well as the future oriented contributions of the three companies. AMP stands both for Amplifiers with an extensive application range and AM transmission. MPEG too is part of the new name to illustrate the unique positioning of Ampegon in the digital broadcast world. ON symbolises switching on the power of a strong and competent group.
Thomson Broadcast SAS, France and Thomson Broadcast LLC, USA which mainly cover the TV broadcast segment remain independent entities and continue operations under the Thomson Broadcast brand.
