ASSOCIATION WITH MOTOROLA

Altech Alcom Matomo renewed its longstanding relationship with Motorola when a sole distributor licence agreement was signed in mid-1994 with the Motorola RNSG now a part of GEMS (Government and Enterprise Mobility Solutions), Africa-Middle East Division. This Division is based in Basingstoke, in Southern England and has comprehensive engineering capabilities for all Motorola systems plus the resources of the Motorola ESC (European Systems Centre) at its disposal.

The ESC is one of the most technologically advanced facilities of its type and is responsible for the configuration, assembly, testing, despatch and delivery of Motorola systems into the European, Middle East and African markets.

Thus, in terms of the distributor agreement, Altech Alcom Matomo has direct access to the largest and most technically advanced radio and SCADA systems operation that exists in the world today and enjoys the direct support of Motorola’s formidable technical, commercial and financial backup.
