WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC), West Melbourne, Florida, is celebrating 65 years of making state-of-the-art land mobile radios with new low price points. First responders (fire, police, EMS) now have the opportunity to be equipped with the vital and ease-of-use features they need in time of crisis. The lower the price of each radio, the more units public safety professionals, government agencies, commercial, and industrial applications companies can afford to buy.
With first responders in mind, RELM has set new benchmarks for performance and value with its KNG ("King") lineup of mobile and hand-held radios. The KNG Series offers the most up-to-date technologies and "outperform" specifications for mission-critical communications, at costs that are typically 25-50% lower than the market status quo. Examples include adoption of mandated technologies (such as TDMA) well before their requirement date to pre-empt obsolescence; the first touchscreen models in this market, which increase usability and speed thanks to their familiarity to the user; and the ability to work directly with customers on special modifications that may be needed for specific applications.
The demand for secure 2-way communications has never been more acute, with heightened preparedness driving the market need to unprecedented new levels. However, an outmoded system of supply has become increasingly untenable to this exploding demand, especially in today's budget-stretched environments. The agencies that need the radios most had been shut out of acquiring the latest technologies and those needing special modifications and customizations found themselves with few options -- until RELM.
"There can be no room for compromise when it comes to 2-way communications, so our company mission was to remove any reason for it," says David Storey, RELM President and CEO. "In these days where more and more lives are dependent on these technologies, too many agencies that need them find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place -- artificially high costs versus inadequate low-cost alternatives. The former keeps the "what's possible" out of too many hands. The latter is something that few would opt for if they had the choice. Our approach raises the bar for everyone; highest performance and highest value. Our commitment is to be the best, not the biggest, and in these days of increased fiscal responsibilities and appreciation of artisanal quality, we're seeing tremendous popular response to our approach and our mission."Contact: Lois Whitman, 917-822-2591 SOURCE RELM Wireless Corporation
