Firm worried after US buyout

AN AMERICAN firm's takeover of a Norway business could hit the sales of a Shipley company, it is feared.

Wireless solutions provider Filtronic is concerned it may lose custom with Nera Networks AS after a buyout by Ceragon Networks Limited.

In a statement, Filtronic said that Ceragon could substitute its own products for those currently made by Nera or supplied by Filtronic to Nera.

Filtronic said: "The Board (of Filtronic] is in dialogue with Nera seeking to clarify likely order patterns for the future."
