3T Communications’ customer base is primarily European focused and with this acquisition there is significant growth potential to be gained through Sepura’s existing and comprehensive worldwide routes to market. Sepura expects to generate synergies through a combination of engineering design improvements and strong supply chain management. 

CEO of Sepura, Gordon Watling, commented: “In acquiring 3T Communications we have underlined our ambitions to grow and diversify the business. We are very familiar with 3T Communications’ product portfolio and management team through our existing partnership and see this acquisition as an exciting opportunity to provide our customers with the end-to-end communications solutions they need. Sepura remains in a very strong position from a financial, operational and resource perspective. Our two organisations target the same markets, have the same technical skill set and, most importantly, are an excellent cultural fit as we are both very quality oriented with a complementary customer base”. 

He added: “After 10 years of existence Sepura continues to build momentum and grow. This acquisition couldn’t have happened at a more significant time in our history. What a remarkable 10th anniversary year so far: from the growing success of our top of the range ATEX radio, to the launch of a new series of hand-portables and of our lone worker and safety protection solution, to the shipment of our 1 millionth radio. We are the established market leader in public safety in Europe and have successfully retained our customer base in the UK, throughout Europe, and as far afield as Russia and Australia”.
