Turgi, Switzerland - Sep 25, 2012 - Three Thomson Broadcast companies will merge under the new name Ampegon to serve the global radio transmission markets. Ampegon will consist of the former Thomson Broadcast companies in Turgi Switzerland, Schifferstadt Germany, Beijing China and sales office in Melbourne Australia.

The name Ampegon describes the roots as well as the future oriented contributions of the three companies. AMP stands both for amplifiers with an extensive application range and AM transmission. MPEG too is part of the new name to illustrate the position of Ampegon in the digital broadcast world. ON symbolizes switching on the power of a strong and competent group.

Thomson Broadcast SAS, France and Thomson Broadcast USA, which mainly cover the TV broadcast segment, remain independent entities and continue operations under the Thomson Broadcast brand.
