SWISSto12 SA (St12), one of Switzerland’s fastest-growing aerospace companies and a leading global provider of innovative RF solutions, has recently incorporated St12 RF Solutions, Inc. The new entity has business offices in Manchester, NH, and will focus on engaging government and industry partners in the United States to commercialize advanced RF solutions.

With the launch of St12 RF Solutions in New Hampshire, we are looking forward to deepening this collaboration and further pooling our expertise.
