‘Made in USA’ Cachet Enhances Market Prospects
Barrett Communications has agreed a partnership with US company Royal Communications International, Inc. and announced the award of a follow-on FMS contract with the US Mission in Central Asia on 23 March.
Royal Communications has provided sales and support for HF radio communications solutions for over 30 years and is ideally positioned within the US to team with Barrett in delivering sales, training, installation, technical and warranty support for the full range of Barrett HF solutions.
“Our US investment strategy is two-fold: our partnership with Royal Communications and our US manufacturing facility provides us [with] a truly ‘Made in USA’ product, bringing us closer to our US customer base and enhancing our ability to deliver the next level in product and customer service in the USA,” explained John Eschenfelder, General Manager, Barrett Communications USA Corp.
Barrett Communications has delivered the latest phase of the US-funded Counter Narcotics Global Threats programme: the pertinent PRC-2090 HF manpack and vehicle systems will enhance and expand the strategic communications and force-tracking capabilities to the mission, strengthening border security and preventing illegal trafficking.

Barrett Communications are committed to ensuring the supply of our products and solutions, and as a global company we are investing in our manufacturing and support capability globally to ensure our customers continue to receive the personalized service they are accustomed to,” commented Barrett CEO, Andrew Burt.
