Despite Tough Economy, FreeWave Technologies Shines

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- FreeWave Technologies, (http://www.freewave.com), manufacturer of the most reliable, high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, today announced that its ongoing commitment to excellent customer service has resulted in continued growth and success for the company despite a tough economy. And, once again, FreeWave has shared its success with the 31st consecutive bonus payout to its employees. Two times a year, the company rewards its employees with a bonus, which it consistently has paid since FreeWave hired its first employee in 1995. The bonus is based on profitability, and is distributed in the form of both cash and contributions to employee-managed pension plans.

"We focus 110 percent on serving our customers every single day," explained Ken Granader, vice president of sales and company spokesperson at FreeWave. "We continue to bolster that support by adding new positions and retaining key employees to ensure we are keeping pace with our customers as their needs grow and evolve."

While news of continued layoffs, downsizing and reductions continue to make the news, FreeWave has steadily increased its investment in its future. The company has expanded into the fast-growing renewable energy industry, is further penetrating existing domestic markets, such as oil and gas, military, agriculture, and water / wastewater, and also is expanding into new international ones as well. In addition, as Granader says, the company has been adding new positions and staff to help continue building upon its stellar reputation as a provider of excellent customer service.

As evidence of the reliability of its products, FreeWave's family of military radios has surpassed more than 800,000 flight hours logged through its multiple OEM partners – the majority of which has been in support of combat missions for the U.S. Armed Services.

"We believe in controlling our own destiny," explained Granader. "Building, delivering and supporting the best products in the industry with a relentless pursuit for 100 percent customer satisfaction is the mantra we all share. It's our passion for excellence, and our ability to execute on that passion, that sets us apart."
