October 13, 2023


Can two-way radio communication play an integral role in elevating garage door excellence?

The evolution of radio communication technology, transitioning from analog to digital systems and adopting more advanced and integrated radio communication solutions, has significantly impacted the manufacturing sector by promoting real-time communication, enhancing safety, and fostering a more coordinated and efficient operational environment.

One leading garage door manufacturer finds its long-standing use of Icom two-way radio devices critical for providing the communication necessary for manufacturing garage door excellence.

Mike Sharpe, a Product Specialist with Napoleon/Lynx in Archville, Ohio, highlights the transformative journey of their communication methods, emphasizing the pivotal role of Icom radios in enhancing inter-facility communications.

“We’ve had the potential with five locations in North America, two in Canada and three in the US, to tie all the operations together via the internet, instantaneous, secure communications between one production floor in another or one main office in another. This is going to afford us a lot of flexibility in the future. One of the features we look forward to in the future is the ability to tie all of our locations together via IP Radio.”
