Dublin based RCI Communications Ltd has just signed a major distribution contract with radio communication company, Icom (UK) Ltd. The deal, sealed on 5th May 2001 allows RCI the sole right to distribute Icom Private Mobile Radio (PMR) products throughout Southern Ireland.

RCI Communications Ltd is part of the Radius Communications group of companies. Radius was formed in 1990 and was appointed as distributor for Nokia in Ireland. Since then the company has grown and is now a key distributor for several technology manufacturers in Ireland.

In 1998 the PMR division of Radius, RCI Communications Ltd was formed as a separate company in order to provide a dedicated team for the distribution of PMR products. In February 2000 RCI/Radius became a customer of Icom and has since supplied large quantities of Icom products to a wide range of commercial customers. In August 2000 RCI won a prestigious contract to supply the Irish Department of Defence (Civil Defence Division) with two way radio communication equipment. Over 180 Icom IC-F4GT UHF handportable radio transceivers were selected for this contract. RCI Communications Ltd is now committed to the development of the Icom Brand in Ireland. The company is focusing on the distribution of Icom's wide range of PMR products, which includes handhelds, mobiles, base stations, repeaters and accessories.

Phil Hadler, Managing Director of Icom (UK) Ltd said: “RCI/Radius has an excellent reputation for supplying cellular products into the Irish Market Place. I have been impressed by their whole operation. Their professionalism and attention to customer care are second to none. I am sure that with our latest range of PMR products and their enthusiasm, both company's fortunes will go from strength to strength.”

Brian O'Connor, Managing Director for RCI Communications said: “The Icom name in Ireland has always enjoyed a reputation for superb build, quality and reliability. With this agreement in place, we are in a position to enhance that reputation, and build on the success that Icom has enjoyed here. Through our extensive network of PMR dealers we anticipate Icom gaining a significant market share in the forthcoming year. We are delighted with the distribution agreement, and look forward to continued success for both companies.”
