Hytera Buys Rohde & Schwarz’s TETRA, PMR Business (7/26/11)

Hytera Communications and Rohde & Schwarz agreed on the sale of Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) to Hytera. The largest Chinese provider of PMR equipment and Rohde & Schwarz signed the contract July 20. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

The acquisition gives Hytera a larger TETRA play. Hytera previously offered mainly Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) equipment including handsets. Rohde & Schwarz doesn’t provide terminals.

"Partnering with Hytera will give us a competitive edge especially in projects involving a large or continual demand for terminal equipment,” said Dr. Georg Haubs, president and CEO of Rohde & Schwarz PMR. “Moreover, we will get better access to the Asian market. This means enormous growth potential in the field of PMR. We also have high expectations in the DMR business."

The new owner takes over Rohde & Schwarz PMR unchanged including all employment relationships, contracts and customer relations, a statement said. The Bad Muender, Germany, location will be maintained — a decisive criterion for Rohde & Schwarz when selecting a buyer, said a Rohde & Schwarz statement. The German firm has about 110 employees.

Established in 1981, Rohde & Schwarz PMR joined the Rohde & Schwarz group in 1988 under the name R&S Bick Mobilfunk. In 2009, it became a 100 percent Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary and was renamed.
