Welcome to our DCRS July 2018 News

Foreword – Steve Luscombe, Director

I hope you are all enjoying this glorious weather, for DCRS this is a blessing with a large percentage of our installation work being outside in July.

It is inevitably one of the busiest months for DCRS, being heavily involved in the events industry we have engineers that have been working around the clock to support our clients at a number of different events such as festivals, concerts, triathlons, marathons and exhibitions. With a hire fleet of now over 10,000 Motorola Solutions radios, repeaters, mobiles, accessories & software applications we are proud to be able to support any event throughout the Uk and Worldwide.

These are exciting times for DCRS, and we have come a long way since we began trading in 1987. Our reputation is our most treasured asset and the foundation on which we have built DCRS. We pride ourselves on the support that we give to our clients, and this comes from the staff that we have in place. We recognise the importance of the projects entrusted to us by our clients and ensure we take special care to meet & exceed their objectives. Thanks to our clients & staff DCRS have now achieved Motorola Solutions Platinum Elite Specialist status – Read More Here. 

We hope you enjoy reading our monthly online newsletter. If you have ideas on what you would like to see included in the next newsletter, then we are all ears!
