2020 was indeed a special year. As with the rest of the world, RACOM had to adjust to the new situation. We are proud to say that we passed this test successfully.
We managed to quickly apply appropriate measures in production and the rest of the company adapted to working online.
With the help of our partners, distributors and suppliers we again managed another year of growth. A huge thank you to all who helped make this possible!
Sales in all product lines have been positive. Our RAy microwave links were purchased in large numbers as ISP’s around the world raced to improve the levels of internet connectivity to meet the increasing demands of those trapped in a distance learning and home office environment. RACOM was able to adaptably increase production and delivered over 30% more links than in the previous year.
Sales of our RipEX radio modems also continued unabated despite the postponement of many projects due to government lockdowns and restrictions throughout the year. The flexibility of the product has seen it used in a wide variety of solutions, some of a confidential nature within government, military and university applications.
At a time when others were reducing staff numbers, RACOM went in the opposite direction. We strengthened the human resources department to assist in finding new employees, mainly in R&D. This will help considerably in earlier completion of new products.
As we look forward to 2021 we do so with confidence, full in the knowledge we have survived a troubled year and proved that we are more than capable of adapting to what might come our way. Again, a very big thanks to staff, contractors, suppliers and of course our global partners and distributors for the huge levels of support we receive.
