25th November 2014 - Sepura has delivered its 250,000th TETRA radio terminal to German public safety organisations.

The Cambridge-based market-leading provider of critical communications solutions celebrates this significant milestone with its established German partner Selectric after a very successful financial year, FY14, for both organisations. FY14 saw record shipments of more than 59,000 Sepura TETRA radio terminals to Germany alone.

Sepura and Selectric celebrate their extraordinary achievement at PMRExpo in Cologne, Germany during an official ceremony with the hand-over of the 250,000th TETRA hand-portable to Andreas Gegenfurtner, Vice President for BDBOS, the German Federal Agency for Public Safety Digital Radio. Customers, media and employees are all cordially invited the reception to take place at Sepura and Selectric stand D01 at 13.00.

Andreas Gegenfurtner, Vice President for BDBOS says: "We are very pleased with the growing number of TETRA terminals on our network and look forward to the day when every public safety organisation in Germany will be able to take advantage of the innumerable benefits of the largest TETRA network in the world and provide an even more impeccable service to the public".

Hendrik Pieper, Managing Director for Selectric comments: "With each new success we demonstrate how Sepura and Selectric's combined knowledge of the challenges facing mission-critical communications in Germany gives us the expert competence to overcome them."

Hooman Safaie, Germany Country Manager for Sepura says: "The delivery of the 250,000th Sepura radio to BDBOS is testament to the strength of our partnership with Selectric. This achievement again underlines our commitment to the German public safety market, the largest TETRA market in the world, and restates our clear intent to retain our market-leadership in this country".

Jonathan Hamill, Vice President Government & Public Safety for Sepura concludes: "Today we celebrate a landmark event in our largest Government and Public Safety market, one in which we already enjoy a greater than 50% market share. Our close partnership with Selectric represents a truly formidable combination in Germany. Sepura is also committed to develop innovative products and solutions to support the needs of mission critical communications users worldwide. Indeed, earlier today we launched a revolutionary new accessory which provides flexibility across GSM and TETRA bearers, promoting operational efficiency and user safety".
