Powertec Telecommunications supplies telecommunications solutions to individuals and businesses in New Zealand and around the world.
Founder and Managing Director Mr Raymond W Smith formed Powertec in 1995 after he recognised a need in the Australian and New Zealand telecommunications landscape for a low cost landline to mobile solution provider.
In 1997 Powertec introduced Telular's Fixed Cellular Terminals to Australia. Ericsson AB Sweden was impressed with Powertec's success at launching the product in Australia, so approached Powertec to sell Ericsson's Fixed Wireless Terminals (FWTs).
Powertec introduced a range of Booster and Repeater products in 1998, which are now shipped to over 70 countries.
Ericsson AB Sweden was happy with Powertec’s efforts and the two companies formed a strong international relationship. In 2002, after five successful years of selling Ericsson’s FWTs, Powertec became the product’s exclusive Australasian distributor.
As its product range grew, so did Powertec's team. From its beginnings as a two man office on the Gold Coast of Australia, the company has grown in to an international company with offices in Sydney and New Zealand. Powertec has a full Sales and Marketing department, IT and Tech Support team, as well as Administration support.
Today Powertec supplies large multinational companies, government departments, defence, emergency services, small to medium size businesses and individuals with hardware to save money on calls to mobiles and call diversion, mobile signal enhancement solutions and products for Wireless Local Loop.
