Dielectric, SCMS Partner for Domestic Radio Sales


Dielectric and SCMS have entered into a strategic alliance that gives SCMS exclusive rights to the distribution of Dielectric’s FM radio antenna products and systems in the United States.

The partnership brings the two broadcast industry companies together to better serve common customers, strengthened through closer alignment on sales, marketing and systems design among other initiatives, they note.

The pact marks Dielectric’s first exclusive distribution agreement for the domestic FM radio market. Dielectric will direct new leads to the SCMS sales team and work directly with customers on design specifications as needed. SCMS will aggressively market Dielectric antennas, filters/combiners, and RF systems to FM customers seeking to replace, upgrade or add to existing infrastructure.

“SCMS has established deep relationships with broadcasters throughout the United States,
building trust with top executives and engineers over many years through their full-
service, customer-friendly approach,” said Jay Martin, Vice President of Sales at Dielectric.
“As a radio-centric company with a large and experienced North American sales team,
SCMS is uniquely positioned to amplify our message of technical innovation, business
longevity and product reliability.”

Dielectric also continues to build out its range of Powerlite FM antenna systems for low-to-medium power FM stations.

“Dielectric’s reputation in the broadcast business is strong and enduring, and together with
SCMS we offer 130 years of industry experience to our customers,” said Matt Cauthen, Vice President at SCMS. “Dielectric offers the broadest range of antenna and RF products and systems on the market, and their products are built with the highest quality materials and engineered with absolute precision. We look forward to joining forces and bringing our
common customers the best possible solutions and service for each project we partner on.”
