Founded in the mid 1930's Ashleys Electronics has a long history in the communications industry in Canterbury and North Otago.
During the 1970's we changed direction when we became a Tait mobile radio dealer.
The Government deregulations in 1989 cleared the way for Ashleys Electronics to move from not just providing two way radio equipment but also providing Network Services and at this point the Company began to develop its own high level repeater sites. Since that time we can now offer extensive Network Services to suit the needs of our clients.
We have a team of six people with combined technical expertise of over one hundred years. We have registered ARCs (Accredited Radio Certifiers) on the staff as well as staff holding NZDE (New Zealand Diploma in Electronics) and RTC (Radio Technician Certificate). As the Company is a Service Provider we are also registered with the Government Radio Spectrum Management Department. Hence we are able to offer a wide area of assistance in radio engineering and deployment.
