Sepura and its German partner Selectric has secured a contract to provide more than 17,000 TETRA radios to the Bavarian Police.
The contract for TETRA terminals and accessories comprises 8,000 STP hand portable and more than 9,000 SRG mobile radios.
The deal is the second and final contract the duo has won with the Bavarian Police. It follows an initial contract for 8,000 radios won in 2009.
Ralf Molocher, Police Director in the State of Bavaria and the person responsible for rolling out TETRA for the police in Munich, said: ‘We have been really pleased with the degree of co-operation and assistance from Selectric and Sepura. The technical solution has been first class and we are looking forward to extending this to the rest of the state.’
Kasper Barfoed, regional sales director for Sepura, added: ‘We have won the second tranche of the Bavarian contract against stiff competition. We worked hard with both the end customer and Selectric to ensure complete satisfaction with the roll-out of the first contract. Not only does this secure our success in Bavaria, but it also further strengthens are market leading position in Germany in whole.’
Sepura and Selectric have now secured BOS-net contracts in 10 of the 16 Federal States in Germany.
