Zetron celebrates 40 years, including 20 years in Australia

Command and control room solutions provider Zetron has celebrated the 40th anniversary of its founding in the US in November of 1980, by Milt Zeutschel and John Reece, as a small regional paging business.

The company has since become renowned for its mission-critical communications systems and services, building a worldwide customer base and a wide portfolio of solutions used to serve hundreds of millions of people.

Zetron has led with a number of firsts, including launching paging products for volunteer fire departments in 1981; bringing the first user-programmable microprocessor-based radio dispatch console to market in 1987; the first public safety company to manufacture both radio dispatch and 911 call taking solutions in 1996; and being the first vendor to support the P25 CSSI in 2007.

“Zetron was founded in 1980 as a small business committed to providing high-quality solutions and extraordinary customer service,” said Brent Dippie, President and CEO of Zetron.

“After 40 years our most significant accomplishment and sincere privilege has been relentlessly serving and earning the enduring trust of customer organisations where coordinated communications are the heartbeat of critical operations and services.”

Locally, Zetron opened its Australia office in 2000 to manage APAC region business and quickly established a reputation for providing reliable mission-critical telecommunications quality, innovation and service for public safety, transportation, utilities and the resources market in the region.

“One of our keys to business longevity is that we have always done the hard stuff well,” said Zetron Asia-Pacific Vice President and General Manager Ranjan Bhagat.

“It’s our ability to provide simple but elegant solutions to meet complex customer requirements in the mission-critical space that sets us apart from our competition.

“We pride ourselves on ensuring the highest level of customer satisfaction and it’s no surprise that many of our clients are now using the 4th or 5th generation of Zetron console systems.”
