The role of PM Microwave in telecom business

PM Microwave began its activity in 2001, as a response to the increasing demand in railway and broadcast telecommunication market. Since 1992 the previous company PM Progettazione Microonde had dealt with consulting services for radiofrequency applications. Its field of work branched progressively out to the design and development of printed circuit boards, RF modules and subsystems on behalf of other telecom companies.

The company became quickly a reference point for those who, both in Italy and worldwide, need “special microwave applications”: the solutions proposed by PM Microwave represent a synthesis between the customer requirements and the most advanced and reliable technologies available on the market.

The ISO 9001 certification, successfully achieved in 2007, allowed and still allows to improve the organizational processes and the overall quality of products and services. The production involves two distinct branches of the company core business: the railway and the broadcasting market. PM Microwave deals with both markets offering and supplying customized products (often developed on OEM base) aligned to the state of the art. In this way the customer’s requirements are always satisfied and fulfilled.

In 2012 PM Microwave was proud to open the new operative headquarter in Rivalta sul Mincio, increasing its production capacity and aiming to revive its image in a more and more selective telecommunication market.
