Military Microwaves Supplement
After many years as a Senior Projects Engineer at ITT Federal Laboratories in Nutley, NJ; Ronald R. Davo founded Microwave Electronic Components of America in July of 1961. MECA’s main business focus through the 1960s and early 1970s was primarily components used in radar systems for the United States Government. During the mid-1970s, MECA began designing and producing customized products for Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill, NJ). These components were utilized in the Series I AUTOPLEX Cell Sites nationally deployed in the late-1980s/early-1990s. Since Ron’s passing in 1992, MECA has remained a privately-owned, family business, and his son William (Chuck) Davo is now owner and President of the company.
MECA is recognized worldwide as a primary source of supply for rugged and reliable components to commercial OEM’s, Service Providers and Installers but has also kept true to the original business focus of supporting Military OEMs with American-made products for L, S, C, X and Ku bands applications.
Extensive distribution channels internationally have increased MECA’s global presence to a large extent; however, the key to successfully delivering products to the field on time, every time continues to be MECA’s unique ability to manufacture cost-effective products without reliance on foreign materials and labor. The quality and consistency of our products differentiates us from the countless start-ups & brokers who buy/resell off-shore materials and is the reason why we proudly offer a 36 month warranty on ALL of our components.
