On its 10th anniversary, Sepura has many reasons to celebrate. Since its launch in March 2002, Sepura (Secure Public Radio) has developed into a leading TETRA supplier.
In 2009, Sepura became the number one supplier of TETRA radios to police, fire and ambulance organisations worldwide, and in 2010, it was the number one supplier to all users in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Today, over 900,000 Sepura radios are in use in more than 100 countries across a wide range of market sectors including public transport, airports, municipalities and the energy sector.
The company's first branded handheld TETRA radio, the SRP2000, was developed at a time when the UK Police were going through a uniform redesign. Sepura listened to UK police users and provided secure communications devices that were fit for purpose. As a result, by mid 2004, the SRP2000 had a 90% market share with the police in the UK.
Today, Sepura’s market leadership spans more than 30 countries from Sweden, Russia and Malaysia to Australia, Uruguay and Mauritania.
Jens Thostrup, senior vice president for Sepura said: “Sepura’s partner network has also been instrumental to our success. Channel partners from all corners of the globe, by spreading the Sepura gospel in their territories, have helped us - and continue to do so - along this incredible journey”.
Sepura chief executive, Gordon Watling also commented:
”I am proud to be Sepura’s chief executive on such a momentous occasion. I want to convey very special thanks to every single past and present employee for their dedication, commitment and enthusiasm through the years and to their families for their continuous support and understanding. Celebrations for this special anniversary will continue throughout the next twelve months, one major highlight of which will be our 10th anniversary summer party for all employees, which will hopefully be remembered by everybody for many years to come.”
