Exciting Products, News from Smarteq

January 01, 2021

Dear Partner

Smarteq is today a world-class provider of antennas for different kinds of connectivity solutions in vehicles of all sorts, energy applications such as smart meters and charging stations, and the emerging industry applications for Industry 4.0. Currently, we see a considerable increase in business coming from the continuous rollout of smart meters worldwide. With our antennas, we secure not only a reliable connection but also substantial operational cost savings. In line with the electric vehicle boom, the demands of antennas for chargers are taking off. For the last few years, Smarteq has supplied a range of solutions to leading charging stations outfits, and we are prepared both technology-wise and in terms of capacity to meet the future increase in demand. For off-road vehicles, there is considerable interest in robust and reliable antennas. Together with Actia, we are well-positioned for this development. When entering as CEO for Smarteq, I could see a potentially remarkable year with an exciting business where we can make a difference and help our customers become even more competitive in their markets. Leading a team with great people, we not only have fun at work, but we also aim to perform in every aspect of the relation with you as a partner. Our aim is always to have great partnerships with our customers, sales partners, and suppliers, and I sincerely hope that this is also what you perceive in your contacts with us. If you have any feedback regarding what we could do better or differently, please send me an email to goran.sandstrom@pctel.com. On behalf of the whole Smarteq team, I would like to thank you for the collaboration between our companies and wish you continuous success. Göran Sandström
