Twig Com employ in-house engineers for software development, electronic engineering and RF (radio frequency) design.
In-house product technology
By developing our in-house product technology and platform, we gain full control of product quality, features and life cycle. We create and maintain our own circuit designs and source codes, allowing us to make derivatives or new products as needed in the market or by a specific customer.
Evolving proprietary technology platforms, instead of spot-trading with ODM products, translate into stable quality, stable functionality and stable system protocols.
Full in-house manufacturing is a key element in the TWIG concept. By placing the production line literally meters away from engineering, marketing and management, we facilitate best possible communications and create a culture where quality and customer service are always job one.
Automated SMD line
We operate an automated surface mounted device (SMD) line for electronic circuit board assembly, and as part of quality control a proprietary automatic test systems for testing 100% of produced alarm devices for GSM/3G radio performance, GPS functionality and other vital functionality.
The new low-energy factory facility was specifically built to house our unique business processes and to deliver outstanding efficiency in the use of energy and in-flows of supplied and recycled materials, while inspiring an atmosphere of quality and innovation.
Techniques employed to dramatically reduce TWIG factory energy usage and CO2 footprint include thermal insulation exceeding Finnish building code requirements, advanced heat recovery and building energy management system, geothermal heating and cooling, and passive solar energy. All purchased energy is generated in zero-emission hydro-electric power plants.
For Twig Com, sustainability consists of durable and economic devices with warranty and support – all these features extend the product life-cycle and make TWIG products sustainable in the long run.
TWIG devices are manufactured in our low-energy factory utilising sustainable technology: geothermal heating and cooling, advanced heat recovery, passive solar energy and maximally profiting from the natural daylight. The factory insulation thickness exceeds the Finnish construction norms.
Techniques employed reduce TWIG factory energy usage and CO2 footprint. All purchased energy is generated in zero-emission hydroelectric power plants.
We recycle and reuse as much as possible. All plastic and cardboard arriving at our factory is reused to avoid an excessive amount of waste. In our production we always consider the best solution to avoid waste. Our preference is nature instead of excessive consumption. Sustainable thinking has been shown to be not only a green idea but also a way to save time and money.
Our production follows the standard of the EU legislation of SO14001:2015, WEEE, REACH and RoHS 2.
Our green values are composed of many components creating a complete sustainable concept. Details matter, like the amplified biodiversity of the meadow and garden surrounding the factory.
Short history of Twig Com and Salo
Nordell & Koskinen Radioliike founded in Salo, Finland. Later branded Salora for radio and TV set sales.
1960s and 70s
Salora Radio Phones (SRP) supply public authorities and the military in Finland and grow to dominate the Nordic markets in early public cellular mobile phones.
Mobira, founded by Salora and Nokia, grows to become the world market leader in 1G mobile phones in 1986-87 and is later rebranded Nokia Mobile Phones.
Benefon, founded in Salo, becomes a successful NMT mobile phones provider in the 1990s.
Benefon starts developing the mobile rescue phone, MORE, as part of a European Union research consortium. MORE is the first GSM/GPS personal safety alarm.
Benefon Track launched as the first commercial GSM/GPS safety phone, starting the momentum in the European lone-worker safety movement.
TWIG Protector P1 is born in a bid to create the complete and dependable lone-worker and social alarm device.
Twig Com Oy (Twig Com Ltd.) is founded and in January, acquires the TWIG/Benefon personal safety alarm device business through a management buy-out.
TWIG marketing, engineering and manufacturing move to their own, new low-energy factory. A range of TWIG Protector P3 personal alarms is launched.
TWIG Protector Pro, a powerful lone-worker alarm for noisy and demanding environments, is launched.
TWIG Embody, a wearable personal safety device with a removable wrist band and six wearing options, is launched.
TWIG Protector Pro Ex, an intrinsically safe lone-worker alarm for noisy and demanding explosive hazardous areas, is launched.
TWIG SOS Safety Card, a lone-worker alarm device in the form of an ID badge, is launched.
