Televes is among the top three telecommunication equipment manufacturers in Europe. With over 1,500 products and over 4,000 global customers, each with varying needs, Televes has cemented itself as a powerful force in the industry worldwide. Televes makes sure to control every aspect of its manufacturing processes, from design to final testing. Part of this is the R&D process, perhaps the sole reason for the success of Televes in recent years. As you might expect, a large portion of Televes’ profits are reinvested into its R&D department. The results are often monumental; in 1983 Televes was the first company in the industry to incorporate SMD technology into its products.
The company was founded in Spain in 1958. It maintains its headquarters there today in Santiago de Compostela, a city in northwestern Spain. At first the company carried out all its manufacturing by hand in a small workshop. Today more than 55 years later, the brand is listed as one of the Leading Brands of Spain. In addition the company has established global branches which allow it to reach more than 80 national markets worldwide including US, Spain, France, UK, Germany, Poland, Italy, Dubai, China, Portugal, and Russia.
