Who is Tait Communications?


Did you know that Tait was founded in 1969 in Christchurch, New Zealand? Over the years we’ve grown into an international business with offices and customers all over the globe.

Although we love it when customers come to visit us and we can give them a full tour, we recognize that not everyone can make it to New Zealand. Because of that, we created this short video tour of our Christchurch campus. Whether you’ve known us for years or this is your first time hearing about us, we wanted to spend some time telling the story of who we are, how we started, and why we do what we do.


  • Tait Communications was founded by Sir Angus Tait in 1969
  • Sir Angus had an opportunity to sell Tait in the early 90’s, but said “What am I going to do with all that money? I’d much rather have the satisfaction of building something worthwhile.”
  • Excess profits are used to support charities and education
  • We were some of the earliest adopters of DMR Tier 3 and P25 Phase 2
  • We manufacture our products in-house
  • Tait makes some of the toughest portables on the market
  • Tait integrates with a wide range of partner products, LTE, and ICT solutions
  • We believe in open-standards
  • We may not be the largest critical communications company in the world, but we strive to be the best

We hope you’ll join us as we continue our never-ending quest to “build something worthwhile.”
