Powertec Telecommunications is an Australian company that supplies telecommunications solutions to individuals and businesses around the world.
Founder and Managing Director Mr Raymond W Smith formed Powertec in 1995 after he recognised a need in the Australian telecommunications landscape for a low cost landline to mobile solution provider.
In 1997 Powertec introduced Telular's Fixed Cellular Terminals to Australia. Ericsson AB Sweden was impressed with Powertec's success at launching the product in Australia, so approached Powertec to sell Ericsson's Fixed Wireless Terminals (FWTs).
Powertec introduced a range of Booster and Repeater products in 1998, which are now shipped to carriers worldwide.
Ericsson AB Sweden was happy with Powertec’s efforts and the two companies formed a strong international relationship. In 2002, after five successful years of selling Ericsson’s FWTs, Powertec became the product’s exclusive Australasian distributor.
As its product range grew, so did Powertec's team. From its beginnings as a two man office on the Gold Coast of Australia, the company has grown in to an international company with additional offices in Sydney and Auckland. Powertec has a full Sales and Marketing department, IT and Tech Support team, as well as Administration support.
In 2012 we become the Australia Pacific distributor for Nextivity's Cel-Fi mobile smart repeaters. Cel-Fi is the first of its kind consumer product to be approved by all mobile carriers in Australia and helped us achieve our company mission of helping people stay connected.
Today Powertec supplies mobile carriers, large multinational companies, government departments, defence, emergency services, small to medium size businesses and individuals with hardware to communicate with the outside world.
