Herxheim, September 10., 2018

Continuing on the growth path – WiMo takes over the Spanish ham radio webshop ‘hamradio.es’

WiMo Antennen und Elektronik GmbH (Herxheim, Germany) has taken over the webshop ‘hamradio.es’ run by Angro Comunicaciones SL (Brenes, Spain), thus continuing on the growth path in Europe. ANGRO's webshop ‘hamradio.es’ is successfully trading a wide range of ham radio equipment online since 2006. ANGRO is one of the largest ham radio merchants in Spain, also serving the Portuguese, French and Italian markets.

Volkmar Junge, Managing Director of WiMo: "The acquisition offers a great opportunity for WiMo to grow on the Iberian Peninsula, one of the largest ham radio markets in Europe. We are already successfully selling to Spain and Portugal, but this is going to take it to a new level. ‘hamradio.es‘ has a large customer base. WiMo has a large available stock and we can ship in-stock products within hours using our excellent logistic network partners. Together we can serve our Iberian customers much faster – despite the distance. Nothing will change for ANGRO customers. They can continue to order on ‘hamradio.es’."

The owners of ANGRO, Rodrigo Herrera, EA7JX and his XYL, Angeles, have already moved to Herxheim with their family as part of the recent EAntenna acquisition by WiMo. Rodrigo Herrera: “My wife Angeles and I are happy that ‘hamradio.es’ will continue to trade under the umbrella of WiMo. I am sure that our customers will be happy to enjoy the fast delivery and service as well as the enhanced product portfolio.”

Volkmar Junge: "Customers can continue to purchase via ‘hamradio.es’. The fact that we already have key personnel of ANGRO onboard is going to ensure that there will be no interruptions for customers. Rod and Angeles will be there to support their Spanish and Portuguese customers by phone, email and online media as before, in their language, together with the WiMo team. We are perfectly setup to flip the switch. To demonstrate what we are capable of, we will soon offer a special promotion to Spanish and Portuguese customers."

Herxheim, August 24., 2018

Germany's largest provider of amateur radio products announces the acquisition of the spanish antenna manufacturer EAntenna.

EAntenna EAntenna

WiMo Antennen und Elektronik GmbH (Herxheim) will take over sales, service, manufacturing and the trademark of the Spanish manufacturer of short-wave antennas, 'EAntenna' from Brenes (Spain). EAntenna has been manufacturing a broad range of HF and VHF / UHF antennas, masts and accessories since 2010. The antennas are used internationally by radio amateurs and commercial radio services for worldwide voice and data communications, and are offered by 20 distributors worldwide.

Volkmar Junge, Managing Director of WiMo: "WiMo has been the largest distributor of EAntenna for a very long time now. Our sales and service teams know the entire EAntenna product portfolio. As we already have our own production lines for a wide range of antennas, we see great leverage in the consolidation of the Spanish production into our manufacturing in Herxheim. This will enable us to provide our customers with the premium support they are used to getting from WiMo’s own product range."

The former owner of EAntenna, Rodrigo Herrera, EA7JX, will move to Herxheim with his family. Both he and his wife Angeles, who also has extensive knowledge of the EAntenna product portfolio, will continue to work for WiMo after the takeover. Rodrigo Herrera: “We now have the chance to develop the EAntenna product portfolio and take it to a totally new level with a very strong partner. We are very happy and excited to be able to work for WiMo in Germany.”

Volkmar Junge: "The fact that key personnel of EAntenna will continue to work for us is going to ensure that there will be a smooth transition of the production and customer orders can continue to be delivered on-time. At this point, we have enough EAntenna products on stock and lead-times should be below three weeks. In addition we can now offer Spanish, Portuguese and Italian support for our entire product portfolio and we expect to improve our presence in these countries."

Production will move from Spain to Herxheim in September 2018.
