Our team of employees has been active in the R&D, production, sales and service of safety radio remote controls for up to over 30 years. Every year, thousands of safety radio remote controls leave our factories. Every single one of our products benefits from our many years of industry experience and comprehensive specialist knowhow.

Safety, reliability, and ongoing further development form the cornerstones of our quality policy. Every one of our employees knows and supports our single-minded focus on quality, which is further reinforced by having 100% of all products quality-tested. Our products are examined and certified by the latest European and international safety standards.

Research & Development

Research and Development are our key aims.

Moreover, we intend to accelerate our activities in this area on a long-term basis through massive investments.
