Sepura's journey to the East
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

The first TETRA terminals bearing the Sepura brand have been manufactured at Hytera’s Longgang factory in Shenzhen, China.

The radios - which include the company’s STP9000 series hand-portables and SRG3900 mobile terminals - were manufactured in December of last year. This followed the closure of the Sepura production facility in Malaysia in October.

According to the company, production will begin on both SC20 and the SC21 hand-portables across the course of this year. Sepura’s European manufacturing will be based at Teltronic in Spain.

Commenting on the development, Duncan Crouch, operations director at Sepura said: “As part of Sepura’s commitment to excellence, we are dedicated to producing market leading products that fulfil the expectations of our customers.

“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.”

Acting Sepura CEO Steve Barber said: “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.”

The Shenzhen terminals will be supplied to public safety forces and “organisations with critical communications requirements” in the Asia region.
