Company History

Hiltron Communications was founded in 1979 and started as a product distributor before expanding into systems design and manufacturing. The company is located at Backnang, 30 km northeast of Stuttgart in Germany.

In 2008 Dan Technologies, based in Denmark, took a majority stake in Hiltron Communications. Both companies partnered on several projects for Scandinavian clients. The RF and microwave technologies expertise of both companies overlapped well and resulted in the partly acquisition. 

The Dan Technologies group is operating internationally from offices in Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Vietnam and Dubai.

In January 2021 Hiltron purchased the assets of the former ESA Microwave Solutions, GmbH. Hiltron has acquired the know-how to design, develop, manufacture and test feed systems and microwave components for the bands from S to Ka, including band combination for multi-band feeds. Hiltron can now offer multi-band feed systems for new antennas as well as retrofit and upgrade of feeds for existing antennas.

Skybrokers integrates and installs Hiltron products since 2012. Our teams have implemented various Antenna tracking Systems with Earth Station Antennas that we delivered and installed.
