The Tait factory has been busy producing radios and network infrastructure to meet the needs of Tait customers around the world. The New Zealand site has maintained steady production for several years, and is currently experiencing an increase in demand.
Responding to Strong Demand
The Tait manufacturing plant in New Zealand is running at around double its long-run average production rate to ensure timely delivery of equipment to customers around the world.
“The company’s portable radio and battery lines are particularly busy, with additional automation being applied to keep up with orders”, says Jayden Moore, Tait Communications’ Production Manager.
“Our factory is really humming, particularly with portable and mobile radios, but we are also looking at strong demand on the infrastructure lines and are gearing up for that,” Jayden says. As a result, the manufacturing operation is increasing its staffing by 30 and is considering additional shifts.
Strong, continuing demand for Tait’s existing radio models is being added to by growing interest from new and existing customers for its new range of multiband terminals. “It is satisfying to bring new models successfully into production and be consistently delivering to customers on time,” Jayden says. “These are great challenges to have.”
The recent contracts Tait has acquired has contributed to the high production rate, keeping our manufacturing stations busy day round:
