About Alaris Antennas

From its roots in 1990, Alaris Antennas has grown to become a substantial supplier of advanced Electronic Warfare (EW) antennas. The holding company, Alaris Holdings (Pty) Ltd (Previously Poynting Holdings Limited), is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange’s (JSE) AltX.
Alaris Antennas, previously Poynting Defence and Specialised, started as a small consultancy at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg South Africa, offering antenna and radio frequency (RF) design consulting and antenna placement studies. The company quickly grew into an organisation that designs, develops and manufactures its own world-class custom antenna solutions.
At the end of 2014, Poynting Holdings disposed of its commercial antennas activities and changed its name to Alaris Holdings. Poynting Defence and Specialised accordingly rebranded to Alaris Antennas and operates as a full subsidiary of Alaris Holdings.
