The Tait Story

Sir Angus Tait was knighted in 1999 for his contribution to electronics. He founded Tait Electronics in 1969 in Christchurch, New Zealand, with a staff of 12 people. The company produced a new generation of lightweight compact mobile radios that quickly secured a majority share of the New Zealand market. By its 10th anniversary Tait had launched a range of portable radios and base stations and was exporting over 25% of its production.

  • The 80s saw the introduction of the T500 series of mobile radios and Tait also moved into trunking technology.
  • During the 90s the T800, T700, T3000 and T2000 series of radio were developed.
  • In 2003 Tait released the 8000 tier of base stations and mobiles which replaced the T800 base station and T2000 mobile.
  • In 2008 the new TP8100 replaced the Orca as a formidably tough portable radio.
  • Tait has now entered the digital era with its 9000 tier of P25 radios and network solutions.

Today Tait has offices in 10 countries and a network of distributors and dealers in another 150 nations. Tait employs 800 people worldwide and exports about 95% of their products.
