STEALTH® Concealment Solutions, Inc., the founder in wireless concealment, joins the Raycap Group in recent acquisition

Post Falls, ID – July 2, 2018 – Global solutions provider Raycap (raycap.com) acquired STEALTH Concealment Solutions, Inc. (stealthconcealment.com), welcoming the privately held company to their portfolio aiming to further expand the success of both companies in new and existing markets. The transaction closed on June 29, 2018.

“We’re excited to be entering into this relationship with a quality company that is very highly focused on supporting the needs of the customer,” said Raycap Group CEO, Dr. Kostas Samaras.  “In acquiring a concealment industry leader like STEALTH, we will look for synergies in our solutions and product offerings so we can serve our customers and our markets even better than each company did so far.”

STEALTH created the first-ever RF-transparent concealment system in 1992 to prevent jeopardizing the appearances of existing structures when adding antennas. Raycap’s acquisition of STEALTH will expand the reach of STEALTH’s products and take its custom concealment solutions global. Raycap’s immediate plans to invest and grow STEALTH will greatly strengthen the brand’s position in the wireless industry.  According to STEALTH’s CEO, Sean McLernon, “Being exposed to the various resources inside the Raycap Group will position STEALTH to expand and enhance its capabilities while it continues to deliver the most innovative concealments in the telecommunications industry.”

Twenty-five years ago, the world was a different place – cell phones were larger than life, smart phones were non-existent and society was not connected by technology 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The industry has grown immensely with the advancement of new equipment and increased demand from mobile operators for more expanded and hardened networks. Both STEALTH and Raycap have grown along with the industry. Under the umbrella of the Raycap Group STEALTH expects to continue its success by providing the highest quality testing and most innovative concealment options for mobile carriers deploying macro and small cell sites.

The company has designed and built more than 20,000 custom concealment projects for cell sites that take the form of rooftops, silos, steeples, small cell, DAS, trees, poles and much more.

Husum Wind Show  – HUSUM GERMANY, Sept. 13, 2017  – Raycap, the developer of the unique patented Strikesorb technology, has announced an upgrade to its flagship Strikesorb 30 surge suppression device (SPD). While Strikesorb technology has been in existence for 20+ years and protected wind operations for more than 15 of these, these recent enhancements upgrade the Strikesorb 30 to a Class I surge protective device, in addition to its present Class II rating, per IEC 61643-11. The enhanced version provides systems designer’s additional flexibility in installing the Strikesorb 30, with its compact footprint, in locations experiencing both direct and indirect lightning currents. The modules also have UL Type 2 Component Assembly certification, and improved VPR levels.

“This new improvement upgrades the Strikesorb 30 to a Class I product per IEC 61643-11 and offers more robust protection in a small form factor” said Zafiris Politis, Vice President of Research & Development for Raycap. “Our Strikesorb products have the ability to be installed in locations with very high short circuit current conditions without failure or degradation, all the while continuously and safely protecting mission-critical electrical equipment from damage caused by lightning surges.” The Strikesorb 30 is just one of many in the Strikesorb family which has been proven to provide uninterrupted protection for a wide variety of voltages and applications including wind energy, solar energy, telecommunications and other mission-critical markets.
