Barrett to Deliver First Products Manufactured in U.S.
Monday, May 11, 2020 | Comments

The Barrett 4050 HF SDR is the first of the Barrett 4000 series products to be manufactured in the United States. The initial order for a U.S. state government department follows ongoing relationships that both Barrett Communications USA and Royal Communications, the U.S. authorized Barrett representative, have with many U.S. state and federal government departments.

“Barrett is grateful to have been able to maintain its operations and production at our two manufacturing facilities in New York state, USA, and Western Australia during the COVID-19 global pandemic,” said Barrett CEO Andrew Burt. “It has been important for us and our customers that we maintain an operational business and continue to fulfil orders. As always, our employee health and safety has been our paramount focus. We have been working with our staff on realigning our current developments and manufacturing processes to ensure employee’s safety is upheld.”

Although the business has been operational, Barrett has experienced supply chain issues and logistical challenges from delays on inbound components to outbound finished product deliveries.

“Many countries around the world have closed their borders, limiting goods both leaving and entering the country,” Burt said. “The movement of battery packs, classified as ‘dangerous goods,’ has posed the most significant challenge with the reduced access to commercial freight forwarding services. We continue to work closely with our customers to both minimize and mitigate any potential delivery delays.”
