Roanwell Acquires Bees Manufacturing

Roanwell Corporation, a manufacturer of rugged communications equipment and a contract manufacturer of high-precision close tolerance machined parts, recently announced the acquisition of Bees Manufacturing, LLC.

Bees Manufacturing, LLC has been making machine parts since 1929. 

Under new ownership since 2003, the company has expanded its capabilities through the acquisition of the assets of Pacetti Corporation (2005) and Cambridge Machine (2006). The customer base of the company is spread across the U. S. and is largely concentrated in New England. 

The company also services OEMs globally, including in Europe and China.

"The acquisition of Bees Manufacturing is part of Roanwell's growth strategy of growing its customer base of engineered close tolerance precision machined parts in its already established medical and industrial markets, as well as expanding manufacturing in the deep sea marine market," said Jonathan LaBarre, president of Roanwell Corporation.

According to terms of the agreement, Bees manufacturing operations will now be part of Roanwell Corporation's Absolute Manufacturing Division, which manufactures high-precision close tolerance machined parts for the deep sea marine, medical, defense and industrial markets. 

Roanwell designs and manufactures headsets, handsets, handheld microphones, earphones, over molded connectors and cords, harnesses, and accessories for military and commercial communications markets as well. 

"Roanwell and its Absolute Manufacturing division are committed to providing Bees Manufacturing's customers a positive and seamless integration with superior customer service while offering Roanwell's additional capabilities," said Barbara LaBarre, CEO at Roanwell Corporation.

Last year, Roanwell purchased telecoms equipment manufacturer Star Dynamic Corporation's H-207, H-250 and H-350 Handset product lines. The H-207, H-250 and H-350 Microphone-Receiver Handsets are used for tactical field communications requirements.

The construction is designed and manufactured to meet U.S. Military Specifications, and is normally utilized with Military Man-Pack Radio Equipment.
