Bird and Sanko Technologies Sign Brand License Agreement for Radio Frequency Test Equipment, Addressing Unmet Needs in Telecommunications, RF Components, Education

SOLON, OH, April 16, 2021 – Bird announced today that it has signed a brand license agreement with Sanko Technologies which covers the use of the Bird brand for select radio frequency (RF) products manufactured by Sanko. Under the agreement, the licensed products will be manufactured, marketed, and sold through Sanko Technologies. The terms of the agreement remain confidential between the parties.

Terry Grant, President & CEO of Bird, said: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Sanko Technologies which further underscores Bird’s decades-long contributions, investments and dedication to the RF Test & Measurement equipment market. Starting with Vector Network Analyzers, this agreement with Sanko will lower the barrier to entry and deliver a balance of high-performance and low-price RF test equipment for price sensitive markets.” 

 “It’s our team’s pleasure to supply cost-effective RF T&M solutions for the global industry with Bird’s support” said Tiger Chen, Director of Sanko. “We will work together with Bird’s professional team to manufacture innovative products to address the customer’s needs.”

As more engineers analyze RF systems for real-world conditions, the need for high performance, low price test equipment continues to grow.  Among the markets with a critical need for affordable RF test equipment are Telecommunications, RF Components, and higher education. In many cases, engineers and technicians must rent or borrow test equipment, adding time and expense to projects. Students get little to no hands-on time with important test equipment. This agreement will address these unmet needs in the marketplace today.
