RELM Wireless Named To Contract Issued By U.S. Department Of Homeland Security

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE Amex: RWC) today announced that it has been named as a supplier under the Tactical Communications (TacCom) contract issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  The contract is for the procurement of P25 digital two-way radios and related equipment by all agencies of the DHS, as well as certain other non-DHS agencies, such as the U.S. Departments of Justice, State, Interior, and the White House Communications Agency.  The maximum total value of the contract is $3 billion with a two-year base period commencing on March 26, 2012, and three one-year option periods from March 26, 2014 through March 26, 2017. 

The TacCom contract names a select group of suppliers, including RELM, that meet established qualifications.  The contract also contains guidelines intended to assure that qualified small business suppliers are the beneficiaries of a portion of the equipment procurements made under the contract. RELM is one of only three companies designated by the contract as a qualified small business supplier for subscriber equipment (i.e. portable and mobile two-way radios).  The contract does not specify purchase dates or quantities of equipment from any particular named supplier.

RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "We are excited to be part of the DHS TacCom contract.  Achieving this result has been among our highest priorities and the focus of intense effort over the past year.  In particular and of critical importance, our team successfully convinced DHS to incorporate small business criteria for radio equipment purchases. Consequently, a portion of radio procurements under the contract must be made from small businesses. Significantly, RELM is one of only three suppliers to receive this designation."

Mr. Storey continued, "DHS indicates that TacCom has been implemented to serve as their primary contract vehicle for procuring two-way communications equipment.  We understand a range of other agencies plan to utilize it as well.  As our progress in successfully cultivating sales with new customers and markets has been painstakingly slow and frustrating, this contract can be a portal to help stimulate potential sales growth.  Now the real work begins; connecting with these potential new customers and making them believers in our exceptional products, capabilities and value; a process that is already underway."
