Sepura Begins Some TETRA Terminal Manufacturing in China
Monday, January 08, 2018 | Comments

Sepura confirmed that the first TETRA terminals bearing the Sepura brand were manufactured at Hytera’s Longgang factory in Shenzhen, China.

The radios, including STP9000 series portables and SRG3900 mobile terminals were manufactured in December, following the closure of the Sepura production facility in Malaysia in October.

Hytera completed its acquisition of Sepura last May.

During 2018, the project will expand to include both the SC20 and SC21 Sepura portables, while European manufacturing will be conducted at Teltronic’s facility in Spain, maintaining a European base for production.

“As part of Sepura’s commitment to excellence, we are dedicated to producing market-leading products that fulfill the expectations of our customers,” said Duncan Crouch, operations director at Sepura. “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 terminals manufactured in Shenzhen will be supplied to public-safety forces and organizations with critical communications requirements in the Asia region. Bringing Sepura’s manufacturing within the wider Hytera group will ensure that Sepura can maintain strict controls on quality and production while being able to flexibly respond to global demand, a statement said.

The milestone was achieved despite being a significant logistical challenge for the team. “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,” said Sepura’s Acting CEO Steve Barber. “The opening of a production line in China enhances our global operations and allows us to better support our customers in the region.”
