Andrew Expands Tuning Facility
Orland Park, IL - Apr 5, 2002 - Andrew Corporation has completed work on an extension to its broadcast tuning facility in Orland Park, IL. The new extension will be used to tune Andrew Trasar, ALP and AL8 Plus series antennas before they are delivered to U.S. broadcast stations.
The new building increases Andrew's antenna tuning capacity by 50 percent and is expected to help the company meet increased demand for digital TV broadcast antennas. The tuning building was constructed with the concept of making it invisible to RF signals. The building's traditional wood frame is sheathed with a fiberglass covering and the use of metal is minimal. PVC is used instead of traditional steel electrical conduit and a fire detection system is used in place of steel sprinkled pipes and heads.
