COMPANY BACKGROUND/CULTURE

Futurecom develops, designs and manufactures vehicle, suitcase and fixed mount RF (radio
frequency) coverage extension products for public safety/first responder users. Developed
primarily for systems following the APCO (Association of Public-Safety Communications
Officials) P25 standard, Futurecom products provide users with enhanced safety and security by
extending voice coverage to challenging RF environments. Futurecom products are sold
exclusively world wide through Motorola Solutions, Inc.
Founded in 1991 by a small group of radio engineers from GE Mobile Radio, we've grown to
employ more than 60 experienced professionals across our sales, engineering, and operations
departments. Operating out of Concord, Ontario, Futurecom has grown to encompass a 25,000
square feet facility, including a manufacturing plant. Our continued success as a company can
be attributed to our engineering expertise, responsive customer support, and innovative
product design.
In 2012, Futurecom was acquired by McWane Inc., a family-owned business located in
Birmingham Alabama. McWane is one of the world's largest manufacturers of iron water works
and plumbing products, and one of America's largest privately-owned companies.

When first responders need RF coverage, they bring Futurecom.
