Our Company History

What Makes Us Who We Are

Trading Since 1948

Smye-Rumsby Limited is a long-established company founded in 1948 and incorporated in 1959. Based in Dover, Kent, the company has sought to evolve its services to meet the ever increasing and developing world of electronics and communication on both land and at sea.

We are acutely aware of the need to maintain loyalty and to seek the satisfaction of all our customers.  We are a service-orientated company and strive to make it personal to our clients and in recent years we have updated our Quality Management System to ISO 9001-and then ISO 14001. We are also members of Federation of communication services and are Safe Contractor approved.

Our Skills & Expertise

Our expertise has expanded to all forms of land-based mobile and fixed station radio including the design and planning of customised systems.  A division of our company operates a communications service, comprising of a number of countywide repeater networks which are utilised by many organisations for their operational basis.

Smye-Rumsby has provided procurement and maintenance services to users of marine navigational equipment, including shore-based radar and radio communications.

We also have a very large hire department, which covers both radio communications and CCTV. Smye-Rumsby has, in conjunction with Local Councils, Police and shop retailers, set up many security systems, reducing crime in many towns.

Over the years we have built up long-standing relationships with many of the world’s premier manufacturers and distributors for radio communication equipment. This enables us to source the most recent and state of the art products which in turn enables us to give you, our clients, the most up to date equipment, systems & services.

To meet an ever-changing marketplace, we have more recently become re-sellers for body-worn video cameras. This provides a deterrent against anti-social behaviour and other incidents and therefore offers the user a way to gather evidence for a court of law.

This is proving an increasingly popular product with existing and potential customers.

The management at Smye-Rumsby is very keen to increase company awareness. We constantly strive to improve and develop new products and services.
