Who We Are



Proud of our past

Zycomm is proud to have over 35 years experience, providing communication solutions to UK businesses. It places strong emphasis on product knowledge, innovation and systems design, which makes the most of the latest technological and market advances.

Zycomm prides itself on being a leading independent authority in the radio communication industry.

Our tailored service means that we are able to provide an extensive range of communications equipment such as two-way radios, licensed and license free radios, mobile vehicle radios, repeater base stations, trunked radio systems and radio accessories to meet each individual customer’s requirements.

Excited for our future

Most recently, our core routes as a leading provider of Hytera and Kenwood products have provided us with a strong base for expansion into other areas of communication. This has made it even easier for us to offer flexible, bespoke solutions that meet each of our customer’s individual requirements, without exceeding the budget.

Advancements in two way radio -

The new digital age in radio has seen our company developing many new applications such as job management systems, personnel and vehicle tracking, text messaging and emailing to radios.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is simply to provide high quality communications equipment carefully selected to meet each customer's individual requirements. We strive to provide our customers with real long-term and flexible solutions as apposed to short term off-the-shelf answers which would prove inadequate and potentially costly in the future.

OUR HEADQUARTERS

Our impressive headquarters are based in an ideal central location in Ripley, Derbyshire with good links to the A38 and M1. The building itself houses our broad team of professionals across all departments in both Zycomm and W3Z superfast broadband including – direct sales, trade sales, engineering, marketing, accounts, administration and warehouse. Our fully equipped onsite workshop has all of the latest technology and enables us to provide an efficient service and repair centre with fast turnaround times.

No matter what you need, and no matter how long you need it for, we’re here to help.

For more information about any of our services, call now on 01773 570 123.

Site Survey

Before you place your order, our qualified engineers can carry out a professional site survey to ensure that our equipment is suitable for your intended use. With our site surveys, you can rest assured that our equipment will be fully functional, and that there will be no nasty surprises after installation.

Installation

To ensure that everything can perform as safely and efficiently as possible, we provide installation services for all the equipment we offer. From a discrete vehicle installation, to a high profile control room fit out, we will provide a first class installation that complies with the most demanding health and safety guidelines.

Hire AND Rental

No matter how many two way radios you need, and no matter how long or for what purpose you need them for, we can help. We have a varied range of two way radios available for hire, lease, and rental on flexible short term and long term contracts.

Our radio hire services can accommodate one-off events, long term projects, or regular short term use, providing anything from simple, basic two way radios to complex multichannel business radio systems. Beyond the radios, we can supply you with all the equipment you need, including rapid chargers, rechargeable batteries, microphones, base stations, and even mobile tower antennae.

Short-Term Hire

We routinely hire two way radios for short term periods ranging from a single day to a single year. If you’re not prepared to make a long-term, capital commitment, but you still need to use two way radios, our short term hire services provide an ideal solution.

With our short term hire service, we’ve supplied two way radios for a huge range of applications, including motor racing, horse racing, summer fetes, carnivals, regattas, and air displays. Our radios are an invaluable tool for the smooth running of any event, and they can be hired for as little as £1 a day.

Long Term Rental

If you need radios for longer than one year, we offer discounted rental rates for exclusive periods of up to five years. This is ideal for companies that understand the logistical benefits that two way radios offer, but are not given a capital budget for them, such as leisure centres.

Our long term rentals are available at short notice and with next day delivery where necessary.

Service AND Maintenance Contracts

Once you start using radio communications, you may start to wonder how you ever got by without. So in the rare event that your equipment breaks down, you’ll want a repair as quickly as possible. Luckily, we offer three levels of maintenance contract so that no matter how elaborate your operations, you can benefit from the cover you need.

Whether you need a job allocation system, or a system that indicates in which part of a building fire alarms are going off, we can provide solutions to suit every individual requirement.

Microwave Links

Our advanced wireless systems are commonly used for both public and private networks, and they are perfect for voice and data communications. For more information about any of our services, call now on 01773 570 123.

A Few Words From Our Managing Director

A Few Words From Our Managing Director,
Ruth Nixon

I have had the pleasure of working at Zycomm since 2006 which is a drop in the ocean compared to some of my peers and their years in the industry. Even since the time I joined the company, the industry has changed; new technology, new products, new business relationships, new faces, but the one thing that has stayed the same, instilled well before my time, is the list of values we have as a company.

We look to provide true, honest, value for money products and services - we are solution providers, fixers who like nothing better than building long standing relationships with our customers and suppliers. We hold dear our history and the achievements we've had but won't stop the drive to continually move forward and progress - we are always hungry for success.

Like our strap line says.....proud of our past but excited for our future....
