Nautel Modernizes Maine Manufacturing Facility

Major investment in new equipment for transmitter construction plant in USA.

Bangor, Maine – Nautel held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this week to launch an extensive upgrade to the company’s manufacturing facility in Bangor, Maine. Updates to the facility include a new Trumpf TruPunch 3000 metal punch and a new 90-ton, eight-axis press brake.

“This plant has been in steady operation since it opened in 1975,” said Nautel Director of Customer Service Kevin Rodgers, who is also one of Nautel’s owners. “Over that time it has produced a large volume of transmitters for the US and international markets. Our ISO certified Bangor facility builds products of the highest quality and this significant investment ensures that customers can continue to expect the best transmitters from Nautel for years to come.”

Products made in Bangor include XR, NV and J1000 broadcast transmitters, navigational beacons and NOAA Weather Radio transmitters.

Plant manager Charlie Drillen reports that the Bangor plant is also building the successful NX25 and NX50 AM. “The Bangor facility provides a significant portion of Nautel’s overall manufacturing,” said Peter Conlon, Nautel President and CEO. “Our transmitters are all known for their redundancy, which ensures steady operation in a broadcast facility. With two manufacturing facilities in North America, Nautel also has redundancy in manufacturing, which ensures steady production and repair capabilities even in the event of a natural disaster or other event shutting down a plant.”
