Dunboyne, Co Meath – Tuesday 22nd March 2016: Leading two-way radio and mobile communications supplier, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced its entry to the Irish pager market, with its appointment as distributor for Swissphone’s range of pagers, pager accessories and alerting systems in the Republic of Ireland.

The deal combines EMR’s track record in delivering high performance personal mobile and two-way radio solutions to the Irish market and Swissphone’s innovative design and manufacturing capabilities in reliable alerting and work safety solutions.

At a time when some pager manufacturers are exiting the market, this latest move by EMR will support continuity of supply for critical users including those in blue light services, public and private healthcare and commercial sectors.

Commenting on the partnership Alan Feenan, director of sales with EMR said:

“Despite cannibalisation of the pager market by mobile phone technology, market demand for the technology remains strong in critical sectors such as emergency services, healthcare and industrial markets where lone worker protection remains a key health and safety issue.

“The addition of Swissphone’s portfolio of high performance pagers, pager accessories and alerting systems to our product portfolio gives Irish customers more value and choice. Swissphone’s continued commitment to quality and ongoing product development made their selection as partner a natural fit for us,” he said.

Swissphone’s products include specialist paging systems and mobile alarming products of particular interest to organisations with extremely time-critical message notification requirements.

“We are delighted to welcome EMR Integrated Solutions to Swissphone’s partner community and look forward to working with them in the Irish market,” said Angelo Saccoccia, CEO at Swissphone.

“There is a strong synergy between our companies and we believe that together we can provide Irish customers with superior paging products and services that will address their time-sensitive, mission-critical communications requirements,”

For the past 40 years, design excellence and commitment to product quality have been firmly rooted in the Swissphone company culture. From its production facility just outside Zurich, rigorous technical, environmental and climatic testing is carried out to ensure high performance device functionality, even in the most difficult and demanding applications.
