Company Profile

Edison was established by 3 partners in the early 80's, to import inexpensive paging from the Far East. The partners were: the retired MD of British Relay (a well known name in nursecall in the 70's); the importer of the paging system to other parts of the world; and the present MD, Bob Johnson, who has worked in the paging and nursecall industry since 1968. The experience from engineering to selling is global, covering western countries from the US to Greece. Although the world has been out of step with the UK in the use of technology for nursecall, the worlds influence is now affecting the UK market and many of the functions of the equipment. Edison personnel have probably more experience than any other UK company in these world specifications.

In 1998, we took over GD Engineering, a well established firm based in Ilford. GD made its own range of hard wired nursecall products, which complemented the other suppliers/types of equipment within the Edison portfolio. The latter now encompasses the spectrum of requirements of the majority of customers. Edison continues to make retro-compatible fittings for the large GD customer base.

Edison also provide a servicing and repair facility for all Edison customers. Edison has Service Level Agreements with a number of its customers to provide for regular service visits; also to give second level technical support from its help desk. Edison has completed an number of major projects recently for the public sector, competing effectively on price and specification with large well known companies in our field. Edison has recently been the preferred supplier for personal attack systems to two major Forensic Units; also many smaller projects.
