From Italy to the world at large, 45 years of innovation in communication.
The story of a business that began in 1972 with the founding of CTE International in the industrial area of Reggio Emilia, which is still the headquarters and home to the Research & Development department of what has become a world-leading group in the radio communications and consumer technology sector. Over the years, led by its founder Corrado Torreggiani, CTE International has developed – thanks to its intense and far-sighted international expansion policy – a group of European and non-EU affiliates and subsidiaries headed by the Italian parent company that now has offices in 13 countries worldwide, including the USA, Germany, UK, Spain, France, Poland, Romania, Greece, Russia, Bulgaria, Japan and Venezuela.
The company offers a wide range of products that meet consumer technology trends in the motorbike, automotive and sports sectors. The company excels in these sectors with its products specifically designed for communication, ranging from so-called Walkie Talkies and CB transceivers, the company’s long-standing core business, to intercoms and motorbike accessories, action cams and real black boxes in the family of Street Guardian products to assist car drivers, as well as portable charging systems, such as Enerjumps.
The cornerstone of CTE International’s strategy has always been its focus on high-quality products, developed thanks to ongoing investment in research and development. This has led to the opening of an in-house R&D department that oversees the entire design and development process of its lines, thanks to a staff of professionals, researchers, engineers, consultants and firmware and hardware designers with extensive experience in communications. The company also prides itself on its after-sales assistance, offering a customised service focused on the efficient and timely management of specific consumer needs. The launch of the B2B and B2C e-commerce platform in 2014 reflects the company’s choice to be increasingly consumer-oriented.
“Creating a world in which everyone can communicate in an easy and enjoyable way.” The company’s President has handed down this mission to his sons, Paolo and Gabriele Torreggiani, who now, as vice presidents, help their father run the company. Paolo is in charge of the Technical department, whereas Gabriele runs the Sales & Marketing department, preparing to take over from his father.
