Dielectric acquires Kline Towers

Adding the ability to build and maintain tall (up to 2,000 feet) broadcast towers to its already comprehensive broadcast transmission service offerings, SPX Corporation announced that its Dielectric business has acquired the assets of tower builder Kline Towers, based in Columbia, S.C. The companies have worked together on several large broadcast transmission site projects over the years. No financial details of the sale were available.

Kline Towers brings its wealth of experience in the design, assembly, fabrication and installation of towers for the global broadcast markets, notably, its expertise in engineering tall and multi-array towers and platform structures. A division of Kline Iron & Steel Co., Kline Towers had annual revenues in 2003 of more than $10 million.

John Capasso, president of Dielectric said, the acquisition expands Dielectric’s market presence while enabling them to offer customers a more complete systems package. In 2001, the company acquired the assets of Central Tower, which builds similar structures on the East Coast and is based in Newburgh, Ind.

Dielectric Communications is a supplier of broadcast antenna systems, communication towers, lighting, and signal processing equipment. Based in Raymond, Maine, Dielectric offers complete system monitoring, maintenance and service to the broadcast and wireless markets.

SPX Corporation, parent to Dielectric, is a global provider of technical products and systems, industrial products and services, flow technology, cooling technologies and services.
