1992 A NEW ERA
In January 1992 Panorama closed the original factory in Wadham Road, Putney, and moved to a purpose built production and administrative premises in Wandsworth, South West London. (This move required a relocation of only 2 miles so there was no problem retaining the skilled and experienced workforce.) The new premises are much larger and are better suited for the provision of excellent workplace conditions. One of the main attractions for visitors is the anechoic chamber (which is another 'first of its kind' for antenna designers in Europe). Panorama is an active member of The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI No: 307132); and The Wandsworth Challenge Partnership (for inner-city regeneration).
1997 CONTINUAL INNOVATION
During the 1990's, Panorama Antennas entered new markets as the cellular telecommunications industry grew world-wide. Increased sales, notably in Europe, South Africa, the Middle East and Australasia, resulted in considerable investment in production capacity and product development facilities.
In 1997 new products included: the first low profile (no whip) 900MHz glass mount antenna; and the first dual band (900MHz and 1800MHz) glass mount antenna for the latest technology dual band cellular telephones.
2000 Overseas Expansion
The most recent decade has seen Panorama turn it's focus to overseas and market expansion.
With new offices being opened in Germany, Australia and USA, Panorama has grown to be a worldwide name in the antenna world. Synonomous with high quality workmanship and knowledgable staff Panorama has been market leaders of products for the emerging markets of M2M and consumer wireless.
2011 and beyond
In the early 1980’s, investments in new technology included the installation of a networked computer system for materials and resources planning. Since then, the computer system has been continually upgraded to integrate company functions and management systems, in 2011 Panorama implemented SAP cloud computing system. Today, we are focussing on improving our factory resources and strengthening our competitive advantages in areas of manufacturing and research and development thus ensuring our stronghold in the antenna industry.
