HSI Sensing Acquires Genisco Filter Corp.

Chickasha, OK — HSI Sensing (Hermetic Switch, Inc.) has acquired San Diego-based Genisco Filter Corporation, the leader in the design and manufacture of EMI/RFI filters for power line, signal line, TEMPEST and custom applications.

The two companies share a common culture of strong leadership in their respective industries, a reputation for unmatched quality, and a long history of serving their customers with custom-engineered solutions. In addition, HSI leadership describes Genisco as having a solid foundation with tremendous opportunities for growth.

“The company has a great reputation in their industry, and a strong, dedicated team,” says Ryan Posey, HSI vice president of operations and interim president of Genisco. “We’re excited to bring our expertise and resources to the table, both financial- and knowledge-based, in order to take advantage of those growth opportunities.”

Deborah Sandvig, operations manager for Genisco, agrees. “We’re fortunate to be associated with a company as highly regarded as HSI,” she says. “While we’ve made great strides as a small company growing our business, we’ve lacked the resources to develop the many ideas we have. Under HSI’s energetic leadership, we feel a renewed excitement and enthusiasm to serve the EMI industry better than we ever have.”

According to Posey, initial plans for Genisco include new product development and expanded sales and marketing efforts. The majority of manufacturing and other Genisco operations will remain in San Diego.
