INTERSTATE COMMUNICATIONS & ELECTRONICS, INC. began in 1975 as South Side Communications located in Raccoon Township, Beaver County, PA. After five years of growth as a part time proprietorship the company incorporated in 1980 as Interstate Mobile Radio, Inc. and moved to a larger facility in Beaver, PA.
In 1993, after 17 years of growth and development the company name was changed to better reflect the scope of the products offered.
In 1998, after 23 years of continuous growth and in need of a larger facility we moved to our current location nearly doubling our facility space.
INTERSTATE is primarily a Two-Way Radio Sales & Service organization providing sales, installation and repair of radio communications equipment. We provide equipment manufactured by Motorola Communications and by Kenwood Communications, the two largest manufactures in the two-way business.
For the past ten years we have provided various types of equipment to our customers for the transmission of data over radio. Many of these systems have been in industrial locations where cost effective low maintenance radio based systems have proved their reliability. We have been successful in moving serial computer data, discrete on/off status, and analog metering signals all over various types of radio paths. In the municipal market we have provided radio based control systems for monitoring water levels and controlling pumps. We have also worked along with other suppliers to provide only the radio portion of the system.
An additional service we offer is the study of radio signal propagation for proposed systems. Determining the coverage area and equipment requirements for radio transmission of voice and/or data prior to the design of the system guarantees a reliable working system with minimal complications. We provide a computerized propagation study of the proposed sites and then, if necessary, actual field measurement tests to confirm the computer study.
INTERSTATE’S company policy is to provide the very best equipment and services consistent with the customer’s requirements and budget. With professional, competent, technical personnel we provide 24 hour year around service to our customers.
At INTERSTATE our motto is “WE ARE THE SOLUTION PEOPLE”. We always will do our best to find a solution for your communication problems and needs.
