RELM Wireless Receives $1.7 Million in Orders From Federal Public Safety Agencies
RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC) today announced that over the past week orders totaling approximately $1.7 million from several U.S. federal public safety agencies have been received. The orders are primarily for RELM's KNG-Series Digital P-25 VHF, UHF and 800MHz mobile and portable radios, some of which include trunking. The orders also include the Company's legacy D-Series products. It is anticipated that the orders will be fulfilled during the third quarter of 2013.
RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "While we are always excited about receiving orders from customers, these orders are particularly good to see because they are from both new and repeat customers, and they include such a diverse segment of our product line; all the major frequencies, trunking and conventional models, and portables as well as mobiles. It is also encouraging to receive substantial orders from federal customers who have been battling sequestration and funding issues through the first half of 2013. We believe the value that RELM brings to these customers is a significant advantage in a fiscally-challenging environment. As the federal government enters the final month of its fiscal year, our sales team is busy working to secure more such opportunities."
