Welcome to the world of BOX and where it began...
BOX was born out of the stables of The Mobilefone Group, a privately owned organisation established in 1989 by June Reynolds-Lacey as a provider of mobile phone, paging and private mobile radio systems.
The Mobilefone Group soon developed into a highly esteemed and successful communications business, providing 'wire-free' communications for business and domestic customers. The company focussed on providing excellent customer service and innovative solutions, offering an extensive portfolio of communications products and services.
During the early years, The Mobilefone Group became the UK market leaders in supplying cellular mobile phones, radio systems and paging. The company forged close ties with leading network operators such as British Telecom, Hutchison Telecom, and National Band 3. The Mobilefone Group supplied products as well as voice and data network services to customers throughout the United Kingdom.
In 1994, The Mobilefone Group were appointed as one of the UK's first mobile phone re-sellers for Orange. This exciting cellular network stimulated business and consumer interest previously unseen within the UK. The Mobilefone Group played their part in contributing towards the success of Orange in the 1990's, and received the accolade of being 'Dealer of the Year' four years in succession.
With the continuous changes and many opportunities that the communications industry presented in the late 1990's, The Mobilefone Group took a strategic decision to diversify its interests. Recognising the change in purchasing trends and habits, the Group disposed of their cellular, radio and paging activities allowing it to concentrate on the company's rapidly growing business, National Service Hub (NSH).
NSH began its commercial life in 1994, offering after sales support to the cellular and digital electronics industries. NSH have grown into one of the UK's most successful operators in it's sector and became the leading 'After Sales Support Partner' in the UK for NOKIA, the dynamic and hugely successful Finnish mobile phone manufacturer.
NSH now supply extensive support, service and repair contracts to many high street retailers as well as providing cellular and electronics services to a number of well known brands, including NOKIA. NSH also handle component assembly and distribution for it's sister organisation, BOX.

the founding of BOX
BOX was formed as a company in early 2000. However, key personnel within the company have been working on designing, developing and delivering their innovative 'wire-free' telemetry technology since early 1997.

Mobile telemetry allows a user to intelligently send and receive data, alarms and 2-way instruction to devices, equipment and people. This exciting new industry sector, whilst relatively new, is now commonly referred to as 'm2m' - machine 2 machine.
BOX now has an established range of 'wire-free' BOX devices and services.
