Dover Announces Acquisition of The Espy Corporation, a Leader in Signal Intelligence Solutions

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Dover (NYSE: DOV) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of The Espy Corporation ("Espy"), which will become part of the Microwave Products Group (MPG) within Dover’s Engineered Products segment.

Espy designs and manufactures advanced electronic radio frequency sensor systems used to detect, record, analyze and geolocate signals. Located outside of Austin, TX, Espy offers complete signal intelligence systems with integrated software that is sold globally. Espy’s proprietary machine learning and real-time geolocation technology, together with its software interface, greatly reduce the time needed to identify and process signals of interest while providing high accuracy on the origin of the signal.

The acquisition of Espy further positions MPG to capitalize on long-term growth trends in signal intelligence as demand for radio frequency detection and spectrum analysis grows globally with increased penetration and sophistication of radio communications. The acquisition also enables MPG to offer an enhanced set of advanced radio frequency signal solutions to various end-markets primarily within the defense industry, while further solidifying MPG’s technological leadership in radio frequency applications.

MPG’s President, Ron Ruppersburg, stated, “We’re excited to add Espy to the MPG team, as their expertise in collecting and analyzing signal data fits very well with our core focus on hardware to protect and condition signals. The complementary product offerings and customer bases between these businesses will create significant opportunities for cross-selling and co-development of our advanced market-leading products allowing our customers to maintain their advantages in the field."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
