With Norene Farr assuming the position of CEO and David Farr as President, Haigh-Farr will now be certified as a Woman Owned Small Business. Haigh-Farr, in business for more than 50 years, 45 of those years owned by the Farr family, was sold by the Farr’s to the Vitec Group, plc in 2011. The Farr’s continued to run the business during Vitec’s ownership. With Vitec’s decision to exit the Military and Aerospace market space in 2016, the Farr’s have re-acquired the business effective May 9, 2017 effecting an essentially seamless transition of ownership.
The acquisition will have no impact on the operations of Haigh-Farr. The facilities, personnel, processes and day-to-day running of the Company will remain as it has been even during Vitec’s ownership — in the hands of the Farr’s. Haigh-Farr has extensive experience designing, manufacturing and qualifying antennas and their support equipment for a multitude of airborne applications, including launch vehicles, space craft, missiles, projectiles, targets, UAV’s, commercial aircraft and race cars.
