Sepura makes TETRA in Shenzhen
The radios, including STP9000 Series hand-portables and SRG3900 mobile terminals, were successfully manufactured in December, following the closure of the Sepura production facility in Malaysia in October 2017.
During 2018 the project will expand to include both the SC20 and the SC21 hand-portables, while European manufacturing will be focused at Teltronic in Spain.
“As part of Sepura’s commitment to excellence, we are dedicated to producing market-leading products that fulfil the expectations of our customers,” said Duncan Crouch, Sepura’s operations director.
“To help achieve this goal, it is a great benefit to Sepura to make use of the manufacturing expertise available in Shenzhen to supplement our existing manufacturing capability in Europe.”
The milestone was achieved ahead of time despite being a significant logistical challenge for the team.
Sepura’s acting CEO, Steve Barber, praised the coordination between the project teams in Cambridge and Shenzhen, saying: “The early achievement of this manufacturing milestone is tribute to the many hours spent working on the project and the dedication of our staff in ensuring success.
“The opening of a production line in China enhances our global operations and allows us to better support our customers in the region,” Barber added.
The terminals manufactured in Shenzhen will be supplied to public safety agencies and other organisations with critical communications requirements in the Asia region.
