WEST MELBOURNE, Fla.
/PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE Amex: RWC) today announced the achievement of a new product development milestone for the Company; introducing the first trunked versions of its expanding KNG-line of digital P-25 radio models. Trunked units are immediately available in the VHF, UHF and 700-800 MHz frequencies. These products expand RELM's addressable market and enable it to compete for a wide range of new opportunities.
RELM President and CEO
commented, "P25 trunking has been one of our prime strategic objectives for a number of years. We are delighted to introduce a broad offering of trunked portable and mobile radios in our initial launch. Trunking is a very important component of our strategic business plans. It positions RELM for growth by enabling us to compete in a large segment of the land mobile radio market that was previously beyond our capabilities. With trunking now available, our state-of-the-art KNG line gives RELM the most formidable and competitive product offerings in its history. We are looking forward to capitalizing on these advantages in the months ahead."
