Vitesse Systems platform, backed by Trive Capital, has acquired Sterling Precision, Inc. The platform focuses on the mission critical components that enable the advancement of communication, radar and electronic warfare systems. Headquartered in California, Vitesse operates three manufacturing facilities located in California, Nevada and Massachusetts.

Sterling Precision is a manufacturer of dip-brazed assemblies and end-to-end manufacturing of thermal management and communication devices. Specific devices include cold plates, chassis assemblies and waveguides.

“We launched the Vitesse Systems platform based on the proliferation of electronic weapons and communication systems and the resultant increase in demand for efficient thermal management and data transmission solutions,” said David Stinnett, partner at Trive Capital. “The addition of Sterling Precision will enable Vitesse to support a broader range of applications and will build upon Vitesse’s thermal management and precision waveguide manufacturing capability.”

“We are confident that the investment being made by Vitesse will allow us to add capacity, expand manufacturing capability and build upon the strong technical foundation that Sterling Precision has become known for,” added Dick Lazazzero and Robert Heckman, owners of Sterling Precision.
