RELM Wireless Receives U.S. Military Order Totaling $1.2 Million
RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC) today announced that it received an order totaling approximately $1.2 million from a branch of the U.S. Military for the Company's KNG P25 trunked portable UHF and 800MHz radios and rapid-deployment repeaters. It is anticipated that the order will be fulfilled during the third quarter of 2013.
RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "We are very pleased to announce a substantial order from a new U.S. military customer. This order is encouraging in several respects. Not only is the order from a first-time customer, it is for KNG products in the UHF and 800MHz bands, including trunking. It was just a short time ago that we were unable to compete for requirements such as these. The development and introduction of the KNG product line over the past few years has expanded our addressable market and enables us to win such opportunities. We are focused on replicating this kind of order with more new military and public safety customers."
