2/1/2005 - RadioScape has announced that it is expanding its business to include the direct supply of its award winning DAB modules. Until now, the company licensed the designs for these modules to third party manufacturers who built and supplied the modules to the radio OEMs.
Orders will now be placed directly with RadioScape who will control the supply chain right through to delivery to the customer. This will enable significant savings to be made on the costs of the modules that can be passed on to customers. New modules can also be brought to market far faster. The manufacturing will be done by a subcontractor in China, Nam Tai Electronics Inc, that is a well established, high volume manufacturer for major international consumer electronics companies and listed on the New York Stock Exchange (www.namtai.com).
RadioScape is increasing its investment in its Hong Kong operations with the addition of a new team which will be responsible for local liaison with customers and the manufacturing facility in China. RadioScape’s highly successful Customisation Group is also being expanded with new personnel in Hong Kong to create additional facilities for custom software and hardware to provide differentiation and innovation.
“This is a strategic change in our business model,” said John Hall, RadioScape’s CEO. “DAB is enjoying a phenomenal growth which is creating a drive for innovation and cost reduction. By extending our product customisation services and having complete control of the supply chain, we can deliver major benefits to customers in both these areas as well as being able to shorten delivery times.”
“Customers want a one stop shop,” added Nigel Oakley, RadioScape’s VP of Marketing. “Now they have one point of contact for custom software, hardware design and ordering goods. This integrated approach will significantly improve the time to market for new radios, make it much easier to innovate and differentiate, as well as simplifying the supply chain and driving down end user prices.”
