Motorola Solutions celebrates its 90th anniversary

Motorola Solutions is celebrating its 90th anniversary today (25 September).

Since this day in 1928, the company has been responsible for some of the key milestones in the communications industry’s history. from automobile radios and the first two-way radios for public safety in the 1930s, to providing the communication system that carried humanity’s first words from the moon in 1969 and launching the first commercial handheld in 1983.

From its humble beginnings as the Galvin Manufacturing Corporation – which was incorporated on 25 September 1928 with five employees, $565 in cash, tools worth $750, and a design for a battery eliminator – Motorola Solutions has grown into an international company with around 15,000 employees (as of 2017) and an annual turnover of $6.38 billion (2017).

“It was always our mission to connect people through technology and particularly during those vital moments that matter in their lives. Our customers rely on us for the expertise, services and solutions we provide, trusting our years of experience and innovation,” said Iain Clarke, senior vice president and general manager, Europe, Middle East and North Africa at Motorola Solutions.
