Manufacturing is back and booming after the U.S. recession. A renaissance is in full swing as plants around the country push their production capabilities and speed product to market. Even though 3 million jobs were lost when the economy tumbled, the manufacturing sector has recovered faster than the rest of the economy, creating 334,000 new jobs in 2 years.
Costs are down, productivity is up, and technology is becoming more automated and advanced. As the industry confronts these realities – and hires a new generation of workers with different skills and expectations – manufacturers must reinvent the way they create and innovate.
Manufacturers face another set of challenges in this rebounding market. More companies are shifting from outsourcing overseas to “next shoring” their products closer to where they are sold to improve efficiencies. And consumers, emboldened by social media, expect instant gratification and faster delivery times.
Whether it is filling job positions or filling customer orders, manufacturers need strategies to stay competitive. According to a Motorola Nationwide Manufacturing Survey, companies are looking for an integrated communications platform to help them increase workforce productivity, improve worker safety and reduce downtime. They want plant communications to connect all workers and devices seamlessly, and expedite communications between machines and people automatically.
We understand the realities of manufacturing and we innovate advanced communications specific to the industry. Each year, Motorola surveys manufacturers nationwide to understand their needs and collaborate on improved solutions. In a recent Motorola Study, almost 45 percent of plant operators said “clarity and coverage of communications” is their top challenge.
The factory floor can be loud and chaotic. It’s why the radios we produce for manufacturing businesses have the same specialized features as the radios we produce for fire and police first responders – such as noise-canceling technology and Intelligent Audio. MOTOTRBO™ digital radios monitor background noise and adjust the speaker volume, so plant workers don’t have to. Wireless accessories and noise cancelling headsets enable them to interact freely, while protecting their hearing.
Unreliable communications can hurt safety and operational efficiency, but when you rely on MOTOTRBO, you have “always available” communications to help teams work more safely and efficiently than ever.
The backbone of integrated plant communications is the MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio platform. This complete, flexible and adaptable solution includes two-way digital radios, accessories, applications, systems and support services.

MOTOTRBO applications offer improved safety, accountability and productivity in a manufacturing environment. Work Ticket Management applications allow you to connect directly to your machines, automatically dispatching the right technician in response to failures. Technicians can also use their radios to send commands to equipment directly: opening gates, turning on lights and starting machines. Job ticketing gives you productivity and accountability improvements: using text-based dispatch reduces errors and allows timely escalation.
