Setcom was founded in the Mountain View area in 1970, and we have enjoyed a rewarding history of growth and success from our long-standing California headquarters,” said Setcom President James Roberts. “With the worldwide growth of our customer and dealer bases, the move to a more geographically central location is without a doubt the right move to enable Setcom to better serve our customers.”
Since its founding, Setcom has been an industry pioneer for 38 years introducing the first commercialized communications system for police motorcycles in 1970. Setcom maintains its leadership by working closely with customers to develop the kind of innovative, tailor-made products public safety professionals have come to depend on.
