TMD Technologies Limited

Contact: Howard Smith

TMD is among the world’s leading manufacturers of microwave tubes, high voltage power supplies, and transmitters for radar, EW, communications, EMC RF testing, and other laboratory applications. TMD can trace its roots back to the early 1940’s, when the microwave tube research division of EMI Electronics was established to develop high power klystrons, for use in the first airborne radars being developed during the second world war.

In 1969 the company was formed into a joint venture with Varian (now CPI), which ran for 20 years. In 1989 the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of THORN EMI Electronics, and commenced development of switched mode power supplies and transmitters for radar & EW applications. In 1995 THORN EMI sold the company to a "Management Buy Out" team, led by the Managing Director, and as TMD Technologies this is now a wholly owned, fully independent private UK company.

TMD has continued to invest in research and development of new products and technologies, and together with significant investment from customers has resulted in a wide range of leading edge products, which are now being sold throughout the western world.
