Sepura Shortlisted for Cambridge News Business Excellence Awards 2020
Sepura has been shortlisted for “Large Business of the Year” at the Cambridge News Business Excellence Awards 2020, a reward for achieving record revenues through significant sales around the world, including in the UK, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Oman.

Since then, the company has succeeded in bringing successful products to market, achieving outstanding commercial success and recording year-on-year revenue growth.
Highlights of 2019 include: a new Tetra radio fleet for London’s Metropolitan Police Service – also Sepura’s largest-ever European order; delivering new radios to their local force Cambridgeshire Police; winning 100 percent market share for police Tetra radios in the Netherlands; supplying a communications system into Heathrow Airport; and winning global business in Nepal, Singapore, Brazil and Australia, amongst others.
In the UK, Sepura have increased their market share to 65 percent of police radios, with over 85,000 radios recently ordered by UK police forces as they refresh their current radio fleets. The company’s radios are also used in NHS ambulances and regional air ambulance forces around the country.
In total Sepura shipped a record number of their SC Series Tetra radios worldwide in 2019. To complement the radios they developed innovative software products to help drive customers’ efficiencies and an applications environment to enhance this capability.
