Barrett delivers first Made in the USA order

HF SDR 4050 made in USA

Perth, Western Australia – Monday 11th May 2020 – Barrett Communications USA Corp deliver their first order of US manufactured Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceivers.

The Barrett 4050 HF SDR is the first of the Barrett 4000 series products to be manufactured in the USA. The initial order for a US State Government Department follows on from ongoing relationships that both Barrett Communications USA Corp and Royal Communications, the USA Authorised Barrett Representative, have with many US state and federal government departments.

Barrett CEO, Mr Andrew Burt commented “Barrett is grateful to have been able to maintain its operations and production at our two manufacturing facilities in New York state, USA and Western Australia during the COVID-19 global pandemic. It has been important for us and our customers that we maintain an operational business and continue to fulfil orders. As always, our employee health and safety has been our paramount focus, we have been working with our staff on realigning our current developments and manufacturing processes to ensure employee’s safety is upheld.”

Although the business has been operational, Barrett has experienced supply chain issues and logistical challenges from delays on inbound components to outbound finished product deliveries. Mr Burt went on to say, “many countries around the world have closed their borders limiting goods both leaving and entering the country. The movement of battery packs, classified as “dangerous goods”, has posed the most significant challenge with the reduced access to commercial freight forwarding services. We continue to work closely with our customers to both minimise and mitigate any potential delivery delays.”
