Inoue Electronic, founded by Tokuzo Inoue in 1954, grew into a global company that has been trading under Icom Inc. since 1964. Dedicated to amateur radio, Icom, as a manufacturer of amateur radio devices, developed new technologies such as the low-noise DDS synthesizer. Today Icom offers everything the radio amateur desires – from the small handheld transceiver to the HF base station with DSP.
With its headquarters in Osaka, Japan, Icom Inc. is a globally operating company in the radio equipment industry, which can look back on many years of experience as a manufacturer of reliable, high-quality products (“Made in Japan”) in the areas of amateur radio, land mobile radio, marine radio and aviation radio.
In the area of professional land mobile radio (VHF / UHF) we offer a wide range of models for the individual communication needs of your company, business, organisation or authority. These products are complemented by ATEX versions and license-free radio devices (PMR446, analog and digital).
With our digital PMR radio system IDAS ™ (Icom Digital Advanced System), which is based on the NXDN ™ platform and consists of handheld and mobile devices as well as the associated repeaters, we close the gap between analog and digital radio. Another level of the IDAS ™ system is dPMR ™ (digital private mobile radio), which is an open, standardized, digital radio protocol, which is published by the European Institute for Telecommunications Standards (ETSI).
In 1976 Icom Inc. founded its first foreign branch in Düsseldorf. The corner stone for international business was laid with Icom (Europe) GmbH, further Icom branches followed worldwide. Icom (Europe) GmbH, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Japanese Icom Inc., controls the dealer distribution as well as the service and the spare parts warehouse for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and some Eastern European markets from Bad Soden am Taunus.
