This week, transmitter maker Nautel is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
To celebrate their golden anniversary, Nautel promises a beefed-up Nautel Users’ Group gathering at the NAB Show on April 7, along with deals to reward customers.
The company started in 1969 as a specialist if nautical navigation beacons and began working on transmitters, solid-state AM, in 1974.
Nautel Head of Broadcast Sales Wendell Lonergan said, “With this being our 50th anniversary, we are planning an extra-special slate of speakers. … We think it will be the best NUG meeting yet and encourage our regular attendees as well as anyone interested in Nautel to join us there.”
For buyers of Nautel equipment, there’s also a deal to consider. A release explains, “running through the close of the spring NAB show: any customer who places an order for a GV Series FM transmitter during the next 50 days will receive an extra 50 months of warranty on the product free.”
Lonergan explains, “This adds up to over eight years of transmission peace of mind with worldwide available parts …”
The company is also asking customers to share stories about their Nautel transmitters.
And it is the customers that are the heart of any successful company. Nautel President and CEO Kevin Rodgers said, “They have been the source of some of our best product ideas, and we wouldn’t be here today without their continued support of the Nautel line. Many Nautel customers have been with us for decades, while others have recently joined the family. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of them.”
