BearCom’s Motorola BC130 Two-Way Radio Named a Top 50 Product for Contractors by Construction Industry Publications
Award from Equipment Today Magazine and ForConstructionPros.com is Based on Interest Shown in the BC130 by Construction Equipment Owners and End Users
October 1, 2013:
Dallas, TX—BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today announced that its Motorola BC130 two-way radio has been recognized in the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products awards made annually by Equipment Today magazine and ForConstructionPros.com.
The awards are based on reader interest in earthmoving, road-building, lifting, demolition, transportation, and technology products. The Motorola BC130 was among four technology products honored, along with a rugged smartphone, a grade-control system, and an operator vision system.
“We’re always pleased to see our products recognized for their quality and utility, especially when the recognition comes from the people who use them,” said BearCom President & CEO Jerry Denham. “This award is especially satisfying because the Motorola BC130 is manufactured for us by Motorola Solutions and is available exclusively through BearCom.”
The Motorola BC130 is a compact two-way radio that has proven very popular with customers who want a device that is lightweight and easy to use. A rugged, die-cast chassis gives the BC130 greater protection, making it ideal for everyday and commercial use, both indoors and outdoors. It offers 16 channels and 5 watts of power. The BC130 has adjustable power levels, accessory connectors, and squelch levels that help minimize interference from weak signals. Each Motorola BC130 is sold with an antenna, spring belt clip, Lithium-Ion battery, rapid charger base, and power supply.
The BC130 is one of three BearCom-branded two-way radios, and it remains the most popular, especially so when it comes to two-way radio rentals. “The BC130 is a great choice for those who need to rent a large number of radios and want to do so cost-effectively,” Denham said.
The BC130 also is popular with customers across a range of other industries, including education and security, and among companies involved in warehousing operations. “A great number of radio users want simply to talk and listen,” Denham said. “The BC130 gives them a durable, utilitarian device that’s also a great value.”
In announcing the awards, ForConstructionPros.com said, “The third annual Contractors’ Top 50 New Products awards, hosted by Equipment Today magazine and ForConstructionPros.com, is a program that lets construction equipment owners and end users be the judges in selecting the award recipients. Nominees were determined based on reader inquiries on new products featured in the magazine over a 12-month period, along with page views and inquiries on the ForConstructionPros.com portal website.”
The publication said, “This year’s recipients include some clear-cut choices, as well as more than a few surprises.” A complete list is available at www.forconstructionpros.com/article/11130544/2013-contractors-top-50-new-products.
