Dear Schomandl partners,

It took us more than half a year to prepare the agreement between Kathrein and Schomandl on the acquisition of the traditional Kathrein VHF products for professional mobile radio. Since January we are shipping the first products with our new brand and manufactured in our new plant in Büdelsdorf, north Germany.
Our mission for the transfer is “change the name, but keep the quality on an excellent level”, and you can be sure that our colleagues in the production department are doing everything to keep this promise. All we want is that you as a PMR user can rely on the most important part of your communication system - period.
