In May of 1995, SMR Communications was started by two long time Radio Repair Technicians Steve and Mike Ruedinger. SMR Communications started small in southwestern Michigan but quickly grew.  The Company  is involved in the sales and maintenance of Two-way Radio Communications systems,  911 dispatch systems, radio towers, and wireless data communications.

  SMR Communications expanded in 2000 with the purchase of Abbotts Hi-Tech Communications out of South Bend.  After the purchase the name was changed to include both companies as "Hi-Tech SMR Communications".

    Hi-Tech is heavily involved in public safety, and proud to be one of only four authorized Kenwood Digital 800 MHz dealers in Michigan. Hi-Tech SMR is also an authorized dealer of E.F. Johnson Digital 800 APCO 25 Radios in Indiana and Michigan.

Hi-Tech SMR carries many quality Two Way Radio Brands including Kenwood, ICOM, E.F. Johnson and Vertex Standard Radio Equipment, as well as many other high quality products such as Skytel's FleetHawk GPS Systems. Our company is one of the only Repair shops in the area that maintains its own experienced and Insured Tower Installation and repair crews. If the worst does happen and storm damage hits, you can be assured our crews will have your system up and running in no time.
