Motorola Solutions acquires Wireless Technology Equipment Company and expands number of Plantation technicians

ORLANDO, Fla.Sept. 12, 2016Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services for public safety and commercial customers, has acquired Wireless Technology Equipment Company (WTEC), a privately held provider of communications system support and two-way radios.

As a Motorola Solutions channel partner and service specialist, WTEC provides engineering, installation and programming services, as well as system management and repair services throughout Florida, including Orange County, Lee County and Polk County. WTEC was founded in 1996. It is headquartered in Orlando and has locations in Fort Myers, Lakeland, Sarasota and Tampa.

Motorola Solutions also has expanded the number of experienced technicians in its Plantation facility to provide support capabilities to South Florida customers. They will serve Broward, Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. Customers also will be able to come into the Plantation facility for mission-critical service needs, including equipment servicing and repairs. 

Governor Rick Scott said, “It’s exciting to see global companies like Motorola Solutions continue choosing to invest in Florida. We have worked hard to create a business-friendly environment by cutting taxes and reducing burdensome regulations so more businesses can create jobs for our families. Motorola currently employs more than 1,000 Floridians and we will keep working to help job creators succeed in our state."

“For more than 85 years, Motorola Solutions has supported first responders in Florida, and we continue to do so with the acquisition of WTEC and by expanding the number of technicians we have serving South Florida,” said Motorola Solutions Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Greg Brown. “This bolsters our presence across the state, which already includes dozens of Motorola Solutions service partners as well as a world-class innovation and design center in Plantation.”

WTEC now is a wholly owned subsidiary of Motorola Solutions.
